VICKY Pattison has revealed that her wedding budget has "spiralled out of control" as she plans a week-long party, with 13 bridesmaids, FOUR dresses and a very surprising Towie star as flower girl.
The TV favourite, who is set to tie the knot with former reality star Ercan Ramadan next September in Italy, said planning her mega huge wedding has been "overwhelming" and "f****** expensive".
Vicky – who has teamed up with fashion retailers Style Cheat for her stunning new collection – insisted that her wedding is going to be huge, saying: "Expect a lot from my wedding – I’m going b***s to the wall."
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Vicky said: "I'm stressed, I've been planning a wedding. I have the world's best wedding planner, Ercan is amazing and so supportive but I don't know how people do it.
"Trying to work full-time, still make time for your partner and the dogs, and go to the gym and see your friends and also the new job at Heart – I'm finding it all overwhelming to say the least.
"Also I can't take my foot off the gas because weddings are just so f****** expensive."

Vicky said she's trying her best to stay within her budget after hiring a celebrity wedding planner.
Speaking about her pal Olivia Attwood's £200,000 wedding, Vicky said: "I've seen Olivia's wedding and I know myself, I'm planning one and I looked at her flowers and heard her budget and I went 'yeah that's accurate'.
"It's mental how much these things cost.
"My budget is less than Olivia's, but everyone's budget is always less but my wedding planner is trying to do her best to manage my expectations and say 'oh you might have to go for a few less flowers here'.

"But all that matters to me is that I marry Ercan in front of my friends and family and we all have an amazing time.
"But it is already spiralling out of control."
Podcast host Vicky revealed that she won't just have one bridal gown at her wedding – but she's pulling out the stops with FOUR designer dresses for her "fairytale" day.
"I'm not just going to have one dress, I'm going to have about four," Vicky revealed.
"I feel like I've been waiting to meet a man like Ercan for years, I'm 36 next week and I feel so lucky to have met this lovely man and be able to have this fairytale wedding.
"I'm going b***s to the wall, expect a lot from my wedding."
Despite the growing cost, Vicky has decided that the wedding won't be televised in a bid to keep things "intimate".
She told us at her Cheat Style launch party: "I love Olivia [Attwood], I love Ferne [McCann], I love Georgia [Kousoulou], all of these people with these amazing shows. I watch them, I'm a reality TV fan at the end of the day.
"But lets not forget I've done a lot of reality TV over the years and it hasn't always been the most enjoyable experience for me and I know doing something with Ercan would be so different but I'm just aware that I want to do this once.
"It's so special, I want it to be private and intimate and lovely.
"But these things are expensive, if someone wants to give me loads of money to film my wedding, I would be torn, I would be conflicted.
"But as it stands at the moment, there is no plans to make anything. We're keeping it very private. But it will be all over my Instagram, I want everyone to see it."
Former I'm A Celeb queen Vicky said she will be going all out for her Italian wedding extravaganza – with 13 bridesmaids, hundreds of guests and a VERY surprising choice for her flower girl.
"It is going to be big, we're looking at a week long," the Geordie beauty said.
"I've got a massive support structure and family up north. He's Turkish-Cypriot, so has a huge family.
"We're doing it in Italy, down the bottom
"I'm so excited, our wedding planner is amazing, she does all the footballers, all the WAGS, she's helping keep me calm when I'm sometimes stressed.
"It's just under a year, I'm starting my fittings, we're getting dresses from The Wedding Club, dresses from Suzanne Neville, dresses from my favourite shops and designers, so I feel like I'm in safe hands.
"I've asked all my girls from home to be my bridesmaids, I know it's excessive but I have 13 mates from back home, my best mates from home. My sister is my maid of honour."
Vicky then revealed that Essex reality star and ex-Towie favourite Pete Wicks has bagged himself a leading role in her wedding.
"I do have Pete Wicks as a flower girl," she confessed.
"Everyone thinks Pete is such a sourpuss but I know a different side to Pete and he is softer than everyone thinks.
"He's going to be walking down the aisle and throw some petals – he and my best mate Gaz.
"I'm going to keep an eye on Pete around my bridesmaids, most of them are married now, so I definitely will be keeping an eye on him."
Vicky – who have been with Ercan together since 2019 – shared her key to a happy relationship as she praised him for letting her "shine" and visa-versa.
"I know every relationship is different, I'm certainly not going to preach to anyone – I've had my fair share of bad relationships but with me and Ercan, the things that's different is that we genuinely want the best for the other person," Vicky told us.
"There is no competition, there is no animosity.
"I've been with men in the past where it always felt if I in some way did better than them, then it emasculated them.
"Ercan is very kind and supportive and very content to let me shine, but also I feel the same way about him.
"So communication, kindness, supporting each other – it's nothing new, we all know those type of things.
"But this is the first time I've found it in somebody, so I'm very lucky."
Vicky and Ercan got engaged in February 2022 in a romantic proposal in Dubai.
Heart radio star Vicky celebrated the launch of her new Style Cheat range, which went live on November 2.
The TV favourite looked sensational as she slipped into a green figure-hugging leather dress, before swapping to a sequin mini skirt and shirt.
She said about the new collection: "I was blown away by the pieces, it was very my style, very fashion forward, I was so impressed by all the little details that I'd seen on catwalks for autumn/winter.
"The clothes are flattering for women, it's sexy, it hugs you in all the right places. I want girls to feel good wearing it.
"It makes me feel confident and that's just what I want the collection to be."
The Vicky Pattison X Style Cheat Edit comprises of 27 essential statement pieces which have been created by Vicky and brought to life by the incredible Style Cheat design team, allowing customers to take festive glam to the next level.
