The star told the Mirror that Emma’s surprise wedding to Jade Jones, 42, after 15 years of engagement in front of a handful of guests, was a “beautiful” idea.
“I totally understand why people are doing this, and I think it’s good that Emma and Jade have done it, but we want to invite friends and family, so people know!”
And likewise, her wedding will not be a big event, but they will all have their friends and family there.
The beautiful blonde decided to weather the coronavirus storm and delay her long-awaited nuptials so that she can have a big party.

The TV personality said she was happy to move to the back of the wedding queue to allow other couples to exchange vows first, as she predicts a “massive backlog” due to the pandemic.
Speaking to The Sun recently, she said, “We are not engaged but we are preparing to get married. It will certainly happen, but we are in no rush.
“We don’t want a small wedding. We want a big group of people and a big party with no restrictions.
“Also, with all the marriages that have been called off due to the pandemic, there is going to be a huge backlog and I wouldn’t want to hamper them all. Let them all go first! ‘

Denise and her commodities trading partner, 46, have been an object for seven years and currently live in Essex with her nine-year-old daughter Besty, whom she shares with West End star Lee Mead.
Eddie also has two children from a previous relationship.
Denise gushed that she knew he was “The One” early on in their relationship, and that living together only made her feelings worse.
While they had to put off their wedding plans, the mother-of-one admitted that they were already behaving like a married couple.
The couple, who frequently appear together on Celebrity Gogglebox, skip the traditional engagement process after being married previously.
Denise first walked down the aisle to marry her father’s daughter Lee, 39, in 2009, but they separated in 2013.
The former Big Breakfast presenter revealed that she plans to turn things around by proposing to Eddie in 2020 because it was a leap year.

Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic thwarted her plans as she admitted it was “impossible” to organize and it “didn’t feel right”.
Instead, the couple made the joint decision to skip the proposal, going for a modern approach.
According to Denise, she said what attracted her most about marriage was the engagement between two people and the “feeling of being loved”, stating that she didn’t need a “big rock” finger to prove it.
Instead, the Essex-based couple plan to exchange simple wedding rings when they meet at the altar.
During the interview with The Sun, Denise praised Eddie for being brilliant with her daughter and helping her home school during the lockdown, which she said was really tough.
The former Dancing On Ice contestant said Betsy found it “difficult” last year after not being able to see her friends or go to school, especially since she is an only child.
Denise has confirmed that she has ruled out the possibility of having more children and said she “does not regret” her decision, although she did consider it a few years ago.
The mother-of-one said she always tries to embrace her femininity and “fondly watched” her guys’ 90s shots.
Denise, who recently hosted her own cabaret production in London, said looking good has become a “focus” in her life as she credits the titillating burlesque show and her glamorous colleagues for inspiring her.
She admitted during the lockdown that it can be easy to succumb to the comfort of everyday Ugg boots and tracksuits, but looking good for her partner and dressing makes her feel better.
