Savannah Guthrie: I'm Zeroing In on a Wedding Date

Here comes the bride – well, almost.

Since announcing her engagement to fiancé Mike Feldman in May, Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie has been feeling the wedding-plan pressure.

"Everyone including our mothers are wondering when the heck we are going to get married," she tells PEOPLE. "They are just so happy and excited for us."

Despite the push to walk down the aisle, Guthrie, 41, and her fiancé, a political and communications advisor whom she began dating four years ago, are taking their time.



"We had such a great summer," she says. "We had a couple of engagement parties. Matt [Lauer] threw us one in New York and [NBC's chief White House correspondent] Chuck Todd threw us one in Washington. We were just enjoying the moment and the thrill of being engaged. Now we need to actually plan, so we are working on it."

As far as who will make the decisions when it comes to their big day, Guthrie says it will be a team effort.

"Both of us want to be involved, but at the same time we're overwhelmed by the prospect of having to plan a whole wedding, so we're in it together," she says. "He will probably want to be in charge of the music, and I could be in charge of flowers and doilies or whatever the girls are supposed to be in charge of."

But the most important aspect for the couple?

"We just want to create a feeling and an atmosphere and a moment," says Guthrie, who was previously married to BBC News presenter Mark Orchard. "It doesn't have to be formal and like a classic wedding situation – we just want it to feel meaningful and personal."
