Responding to comments, Ward claimed she had left two of the extravagant dressed in the Maldives for future brides to wear.
'I left two of the wedding dresses I wore in the Maldives there for future Maldivian brides to wear, should they not be able to afford a gown themselves,' she told FEMAIL.
Rachel also donated two of the dresses to Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust - a charity close to her heart.
Looking back, Ward reflects: 'I'm really not a bridezilla I just simply love fashion which is what I studied, for my degree.
'I think I got a little carried away and just kept seeing more and more that I liked, only looking back now do I realise how many I had.'
