Kerry Katona admits taking part in 'Celebrity Wedding Planner' was a daunting task as she is not very good at organising events
Kerry Katona admits taking part in 'Celebrity Wedding Planner' was a daunting task.
The reality TV star had to plan a wedding for a couple she had never met for the Channel 5 show and says she was scared at first because she's not had much experience of organising events.
She said: "When I got asked I was like, 'Oh my god, I can't organise a p**s up in a pub!' But I'm always up for a challenge. The scary thing with it was I didn't get to meet the couple until the last week and I think it's scary the fact that what would be my taste in venues, in dresses and things could be a completely different to what the bride liked.
"The only way I could get to know what they might like was go to their house and have a snoop around. I also did a sneaky Facebook search."
While she was determined to get everything right, Kerry says the thing she was dreading the most was the wedding dress for bride Stephanie Griffiths and ended up designing it herself.
Kerry - who has been divorced twice - told the Daily Star newspaper: "This way it could have been one of a kind and add a special touch.
"The lady who made the dress was incredible. Becky (Stephanie's sister) and I walked into the shop and tried to explain what we wanted by gesturing with our hands - and it was perfect."
"I'd never met the bride, I'd designed the dress and everything and she didn't even know I was the planner at the point. On the day I had to reveal it was me I also had to reveal the dress - I was so nervous!
"Luckily we hit it off straight away and thank the lord she absolutely loved it!"
