Stacey Solomon's family and friends are "trying to remind her she's only one person" as she is "putting pressure on herself" ahead of her wedding to Joe Swash.

The 32 year old is expected to marry former EastEnders star Joe, 40, in a stunning ceremony in the garden of their Essex mansion, Pickle Cottage this month.

But a source tells OK! that crafting queen Stacey wants to make sure her stamp is felt throughout the nuptials, and that she has been working all hours to achieve this.

The source says: "Stacey is putting pressure on herself but she is loving putting everything together for this wedding that she can.

"It's a passion project for her as well as a wedding, but her friends are trying to remind her that she's only one person and she needs to lean on other people sometimes.

"She wants this wedding to be perfect for her and Joe but is trying to do all of the preparations on top of working and looking after the kids.

"She is very hands on and wants it all to go her way," they continued of the Loose Women panellist.

OK! has contacted a representative for Stacey for comment on this story.

Stacey has been using her DIY skills to upcycle and make different decorations including a stunning welcome sign, which she created out of an old mirror.

The sign features white flowers with the words "Welcome to the wedding of Stacey & Joe" printed across it, with "FOREVER" written at the bottom.

In addition, Stacey has created an incredible display outside her and Joe's front door, covered with a flower arch featuring dozens of white roses, and a Mr & Mrs sign has been attached to the front door.

The flowers spill out onto the pavement and a series of white lanterns have been placed across the concrete steps which lead to Stacey and Joe's front door.

Stacey has also unveiled some of the things she's put in place for her guests to enjoy, including a 'tea wall'.

The star created the unique drinks display out of old wooden pallets, which she sanded down and painted before adding flowers and gold hooks.

She also added two sweet tea-inspired quotes to finish it off with the wall having "Our love is like a cup of tea, a special blend of you and me" written across the middle, along with "Let's get this par-tea started" written across the bottom.

Stacey also created gift bags especially for the children who will be attending the wedding, which are filled with toys and goodies that will help to keep the little ones entertained throughout the special day.

The star has filled woven tote bags with goodies including a children's wedding activity pack, some slime and a small teddy bear keyring, and each bag has the words "Little Pickle Activity Pack" written across it.
