"Alex is too busy at the moment. So he's doing his brand I'm doing the wedding, we're also trying to get a house at the same time so it's all going on."

However, the 25-year-old hunk is having a little bit input into the preparations for the ceremony as he doesn't want to be completely out of the loop when the big day arrives.
