Revealed: Here’s why just one Spice Girl showed up to Geri’s wedding


Geri Halliwell had a fairytale wedding to Christian Horner in Bedfordshire, England last month, but not everything about the big day was perfect.

Three notable absentees from the ceremony were Geri's former Spice Girls bandmates Mel B, Mel C and Victoria Beckham. In the end, Emma Bunton was the only one in attendance, and although did others did take to social media to lament the fact they couldn't be there, many wondered why more of an effort wasn't made.

Now though, Mel B has spoken out about why she skipped Geri's big day along with Posh and Sporty, and she says it really was just an unfortunate scheduling issue.

The former X Factor judge claims that Geri simply didn't give her guests enough notice when planning the big day.

"Even though [Geri and Christian] have been together quite a while, it was like, ‘Oh I’m getting married in a few weeks,'" Mel explained to "I was like, ‘No change the date!’"

Despite missing Geri's wedding, Mel said she was keen to hear how it went, and added that she would be arriving in England in "a few hours" to catch up with her pals. It seems she stuck to her word, if this Instagram snap posted by Mel earlier today is anything to go by:

"Love my girls!!! Friendship never ends it just gets stronger," the singer wrote next to the sweet photo of herself, Geri and Emma.

Still no sign of Victoria or Mel C, though…
