Stacey confirmed she will marry Joe Swash in July 2021

"We know we won't be allowed many people but still unclear on exactly how many.

"We will most likely need to have a table for every household but again, not clear with vaccine progress etc..."

She later went on to explain that due to COVID, it might not even happen after all. "It may all be stopped like so many people's days have been over the last year. But planning and making bits makes me happy and trying to think positively about the future is always nice," she confessed.

Stacey's decision to continue planning her wedding comes after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his four-step roadmap to lead the UK out of lockdown. If all goes to plan, weddings are predicted to go ahead from March 8 with a capacity of six people, which can increase to 15 guests on 12 April and 30 from 17 May. 

Although Stacey and Joe have not disclosed their exact date in July,  they should be able to enjoy an unlimited guest list should step four have taken effect on 21 June, which has no limit on attendees.
