The source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Lily has been planning her dream dress for months and couldn’t decide between a classic, full-length ivory and lace gown or a shorter, more modern dress.
“In the end, Karl suggested she get one of each and decide on the morning which she’ll wear down the aisle. At the moment it looks as though she will plump for the more classic, vintage gown with a small train for the ceremony, and then change straight after the service into a shorter, tighter number.
“The latter will be more in keeping for the evening party and will allow her to dance more freely.”

She raged on twitter: “Tip of the day: don’t ever get married, its a nightmare, and everyone involved (or not as the case may be) turns into a ****. Is there a train station for Gretna Green?
