Kevin Zegers is getting ready for his summer wedding to Jaime Feld and the former "Gossip Girl" hunk has a bit of extra preparation to accomplish before walking down the aisle.

"It's a Jewish ceremony, so I have to memorize the Hebrew," Kevin told E!.

Once he's mastered the language task, the 28-year-old actor has to work on his glass-breaking technique (smashing a glass via the foot is a tradition in Jewish wedding ceremonies - thought to bring good luck to the new couple).

"My father-in-law just told me to do it with the heel," he said with a smile.

Kevin met his soon-to-be bride, a talent agent, through one of his former co-stars, Sophia Bush (Jaime and Sophia are best friends).

The film is slated to hit theaters on August 23.
