Olivia Buckland wants Cara de la Hoyde to be bridesmaid
Olivia Buckland is planning to ask Cara de la Hoyde to be her bridesmaid when she gets hitched to Alex Bowen next year
Olivia Buckland wants Cara de la Hoyde to be one of her bridesmaids.
The 23-year-old reality TV star only met the brunette beauty six months ago when they were competing against one another on the dating show 'Love Island' but she has already decided that she'll be by her side when she walks down the aisle next year.
Asked if she'll invite any of her former co-stars to her wedding, Olivia said: "Yeah, I've spoken to a few of them. I still speak to Cara a lot, obviously, so she's definitely going to be there. Yes (she will be my bridesmaid). We're still really close."
The blonde bombshell was left stunned earlier this month when her boyfriend Alex Bowen, who she also met in the villa over the summer, popped the question to her during a surprise trip to New York and she can't wait to start planning her big day.
She said: "It's crazy mad. It still hasn't sunk in. I feel like we're still boyfriend and girlfriend but that's not the case! It was a complete shock. He said he wouldn't be doing it in New York and then... We're going to look at venues soon because the get booked up so quickly. We definitely want a big country manor house, hopefully in Essex. I want the ceremony and the reception in one place so it's easier for people."
Olivia has taken it upon herself to organise the wedding but will allow her beau to get involved if he wants to - although she'll always have the final say.
She told new! magazine: "I think a wedding is such a girl's priority, they always organise it. Alex wants to be involved and he definitely has his say, but we haven't disagreed on anything yet. I don't know if he's just agreeing with me to be a good fiance?"
