Saara Aalto has decided to delay her wedding with Meri Sopanen so she can focus on her music career
Saara Aalto has pushed back her wedding.
The 'X Factor' runner up - who lost out on the winning title to Matt Terry in last weekend's show - got engaged to her girlfriend Meri Sopanen in August but they've been forced to delay the big day because she's too busy chasing after a record deal.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "[The wedding] is somewhere in the future not right now, we have some other things to do first...
"I've had so many meetings but it's only been two days so it's all very confusing at the moment but we've had very good meetings and very good plans."
And, although she's yet to sign a deal with any big music companies, the Finnish beauty is adamant she'll manage to snap up a deal when the New Year roles around.
Asked if she's worried about trailing behind Honey G - who was eliminated from the competition before the final - because she's bagged a deal with Syco, Saara said: "Honey G went from the competition a few weeks ago so they had time to do that and its only been two days for me. It takes time. After New Year we can see."
The 29-year-old singer may be putting her singing career before her relationship with Meri but it doesn't look her partner is too concerned as she was beside her side every week while she was performing on the show and was even willing to put her feelings aside at the final so that Saara's ex-boyfriend Teemu Roivainen - who she previously dated for nine years - could watch her battle it out with Matt at the weekend.
