Everything We Know About Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash's Wedding
Stacey and Joe Solomon-Swash shared their photos of their wedding on Instagram - signing off as 'Mr and Mrs Solomon-Swash' with the following caption:
"🕊Forever 🕊 Me and My Husband 😭 I don’t think I will ever get used to saying that. It all feels like a dream 🥲 “You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” Dr. Seuss
The most special day that we didn’t ever want to end. We love you all & the special community we’ve built on here so so much and couldn’t wait to share these moments with you. 🥲
Joe lost his father at the age of 11 and so did my dad. A huge part of our wedding day was reflecting on how this had a huge effect on them and how hard it is, even to this day to deal with.
We have copyrighted all these photos. We ask for all media who wish to use them on their own platforms to lawfully do the right thing by asking permission from the photographer. They will in turn give permission for them to be used as long as the media outlets using them make a donation to a charity that supports bereaved children.
These memories are so special to us and it would mean the absolute world to us if they made a difference to children growing up with the loss and heartache that my father and my husband did. Thank you for respecting our wishes 🖤 lots of love Mr & Mrs Solomon-Swash 😭"

In line with wedding traditions, Stacey’s adopted a crafty approach to the ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’ by incorporating all four of the traditional items into her elaborate door display.
Sharing her design on Instagram, the star wrote: “Something old - the horses shoe we found in pickle cottage when we moved in. Something new - the Mr & Mrs sign. Something borrowed - @emlouflowers leant me some of her beautiful white roses and eucalyptus. Something blue - the sky as we finished it.”
What Does Stacey Solomon's Wedding Dress Look Like?
Stacey opted for a romantic, off the shoulder wedding dress with a structured, corset style bodice. She paired her dress with a floral bridal headband and a wedding veil. Prior to her wedding day, she had shared some hints of what she might go for online!
Engaged celebrities tend to stay pretty hush-hush about their (sometimes multiple) wedding dresses and outfits, but Stacey, being the real gal's gal she is, gave fans a sneak peek at her wedding dress shopping experience. Documenting a ‘feeling she never wants to forget’, Stacey took to Instagram after going wedding dress shopping and revealed a glimpse of a wedding gown which appeared to be a strapless design with floral embroidery and some illusion mesh panelling.
Posted in April this year, Stacey admitted that she was so excited to have found her dream wedding dress that she just couldn’t resist giving fans a first-look. Whilst she did clarify that the dress in the picture isn’t ‘the one’, it could be an indication of the style she’s planning on going for on the big day.
Speaking to her 5.3million followers, she penned: “I’ve been putting it off I think because the more I got excited about it, the more silly I felt for some reason… I started feeling really conscious about not being, well I don’t know 😂🙈 I wouldn’t have done life any other way EVER. I’m so grateful for how it turned out and I genuinely believe everything happens for a reason. But I suppose sometimes those old fashioned narratives make you feel that way don’t they?”
Always doing things her way, Stacey had her wedding dress shopping experience in the comfort of her own home and decided to do it alone. After trying not to make it a ‘thing’, she told fans that her sister popped in at the end of the day and the pair both became emotional messes. We all know that feeling!

Who Are Stacey Solomon's Bridesmaids and What Are They Wearing?
Whilst Stacey has never confirmed who her bridesmaids will be ahead of the big day, it's been rumoured that she wants social media influencer Sophie Hinchliffe (also known as Mrs Hinch) to be one of her bridesmaids.
When announcing the launch of her new collection with In The Style, Stacey also gave a big hint about her bridesmaid dresses. When modelling this stunning red wrap dress on her Instagram stories, she stated that this is 'very similar' to her bridesmaid dresses.
Whether it's the silhouette, colour or style of dress she's referring to - it was one of the biggest clues she's revealed. Every item in her range of occasion wear has been made from 100% recycled fabric and is completely organic. She's previously told her followers she wants to base her wedding around her love of the Fejka plants from Ikea. We're predicting gorgeous green gowns in this wrap silhouette.

Sharing snaps of the celebration on her Instagram, the star shared that her girls had planned an abroad trip, writing: “👰♀️ It’s my hen do 😭👰♀️ Honestly I’ve never felt so special. I love you girls. Even if you did make me travel across the Mediterranean Sea dressed as a giant green pickle 😂”
