WFML-Brides: OliviaAlong with the help of the girls at When Freddie met Lilly, Olivia chose a gown with a beautiful bespoke twist for her big day. Below, she talks about wedding gown expectations and how she completely changed her mind!

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
The big day was almost perfect, there was the slight hiccup of my sister, and maid of honour, dislocating her knee after the ceremony. I was lucky to have such a tough and amazing bridesmaid, after a trip to the hospital she made it back in time for the reception and, with her crutches and green whistle, she was able to make her speech and sort of do a bit of a boogie on the dance floor. It just goes to show, it doesn’t matter how well you plan the day things will still go wrong and you just have let go of things being ‘perfect’.
