Olivia Attwood Dack has opened up on her unconventional decision to have no bridesmaids at her wedding.

I can imagine that not being an easy conversation to have with your mates.

Take a look at what she had to say below:

Newlyweds Olivia, 32, and Bradley, 29 are starring in ITV series Olivia Marries Her Match, which showcases their lead-up to the big day.

The former Love Island star tied the knot in June at the five-star hotel Bulgari in Knightsbridge, last month, wearing a £30,000 wedding dress by designer Galia Lahav.

However, viewers seem to be talking less about the dress and more about her decision to have no bridesmaids.

On a recent episode of Loose Women, Olivia was asked presenter, Judi Love: "The one thing I was a little bit shocked of was no bridesmaids! How did that come about?"

Linda Robson also added: "Haven't you got lots of girlfriends that you wanted to be your bridesmaid?"

To which, Olivia explained: "A couple of brides I spoke to [who] have been married previously, '[I said] if they could change one thing, what would it be?'

"And they said 'bridesmaids are hard work'.

"Because, one, it's really political, isn't it.

"So when me and Brad first started looking at it and [we] was going 'right, so we want even numbers, it balances aesthetically'."

Olivia said that that in her wedding photos, she wanted the wedding party to look 'balanced', adding: "He can't have like 10 and me have like 50 [of them].

"So we're looking at it and I was like if I get everyone in who would expect to be one, it's just going to be so."

She joked: "And I was like I could buy 10 dresses or buy myself a piece of jewellery."

So, in the first instalment of the new ITV show, we witnessed the antics Dack got up to on his Ibiza stag do.

The lads were seen handing him a blonde wig and bright pink outfit so that they could dress him up like his missus, having been inspired by one of her previous looks.

Dack told the camera: "So [friends] Jamie and Ronnie decided it would be funny to dress me up like Liv at the airport.

“I actually think if you took my beard off I would be alright you know.

“A few of the boys definitely wouldn’t say no!”

He added: "Let’s get this stag started. It is time to attack Ibiza!"

But while sometimes what happens on the stag do stays on the stag do, Dack decided to give Attwood a FaceTime call to show off the prank.

"What the actual f**k?” she asked him.

“What's on your head?"

After Dack innocently told her it was just his wig, Attwood replied: “That is so disturbing!”

And it seems the joke wore off pretty quickly for the groom, as he soon realised just how much attention he was receiving after landing in Ibiza.
