Hayden Panettiere plans to be "stripped down" for wedding
Hayden Panettiere is gearing up to walk down the aisle and marry. Note, though, it'll be the woman wearing a gorgeous gown on that important day — not the actress.
Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé have a lot of planning to do for their upcoming wedding. From dresses to details on his proposal, the actress opened up to Brides magazine with all the details.
"When eyes have been on me in the past, it's been because of an event, where people see me as a persona, as Hayden Panettiere the actress," the Nashville crooner explained.
"For the aisle, you're the purest, most emotionally stripped-down version of yourself, sharing this raw moment with the most important people in your life. It seems very overwhelming!"
The 24-year-old, pictured here with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko in Germany at the A Heart for Children charity gala, insists the marriage proposal she received was "very sweet and simple and genuine."
"It wasn't about being overwhelmed by fireworks or a mariachi band," Panettiere shared. "I think it's amazing when people do that, but I like that mine was simple and from the heart."
Despite her stated preference for keeping it simple, the star is thankful this on-again, off-again relationship had some bumps she could learn and grow from.
"It means a lot when you experience life with someone, then you experience life without him and decide that you don't want to live without him," Panettiere advised. "You date, you try to be with different people, you make mistakes, and you get to know yourself in the process. And in the end you want to be with someone who makes you the best version of yourself."
The duo have not yet publicly announced their wedding date.
