Her lavish Italian wedding is just weeks away, but it seems Georgia Salpa (left) is having a hard time with the final preparations.

The Dublin model, who is set tie the knot with her businessman beau Joe Penna this month, has been busy putting the final touches to the event, including finalising the table plan for the meal.

The half-Greek beauty (29) shared her despair with her 350,000 Instagram followers as she posted a picture of a table full of post-its, captioned "#tableplan not easy".

Georgia recently revealed that she also had trouble when it came to choosing bridesmaids from her nearest and dearest - which she narrowed down to seven.

"I have seven bridesmaids - it's so hard to choose," she told the Diary.


However, Georgia insists her big day will be "low-key" and that she won't be signing a magazine deal for the photographs.

"I don't think I will [do a magazine deal]," she said.

"It's not going to be a big thing, it'll be quite low-key."

The dark-haired model, who was a judge in the Best Dressed Lady competition at the Punchestown Festival recently, said that the luxurious Italian affair will just be for some of the couple's closest family and friends.

"We would just rather have it for ourselves and a have a nice day.

"It's going to be really chilled with just close friends and family."

Hotspots box clever

Some of Dublin's top nightclubs will battle it out on Thursday to raise funds for the Homeless Street Leagues charity.

Representatives from Lillies, Coppers and The Grafton Lounge, as well as many others, will battle it out in the ring in this year's Dublin Pub Box in Dandelion on Stephen's Green.

Doors open at 7pm and tickets cost €20, with all proceeds going to the cause.
