From the moment that glittering diamond is slipped on your finger and you're basking in the glow of engagement, thoughts about your Big Day are not far from your mind.

Weddings are wonderful occasions and a day that brides and grooms want to be perfect – which can lead to a lot of stress emotionally, physically and financially.

Engaged couples have to deal with venues, flowers, music, food, photographers, dresses, entertainment…the list goes on.

But what if there was a way you could trade in the spreadsheets and lists for something much more straightforward?

If the term ''cashless wedding'' sounds like something you'd like then Wedding Wallet, a fancy new tech tool created by Justin Kearns, is IDEAL for you.

What is it?

It's a platform aimed at engaged couples which lets couples budget, plan and pay for their wedding in one place.

How does it work?

It connects you to vendors based your wedding date, location and budget.

You can also get cash gifts over the platform by sending a private link with friends and family on request.

Sounds fab, right?

How do you use it?

It couldn't be easier – just sign up to weddingwallet.ie on mobile or desktop  and create a manageable wedding budget for every element of the big day from the dress to the DJ.

What's so handy is that the vendors you're connected during via Wedding Wallet will ony be available on the date of their big day, reducing the already-stretched time that you have.

So, once the couples match with a vendor, they can ask directly for more details, receive a quote and then Wedding Wallet allows them to send the vendor the initial booking deposit, with the remaining amount due being paid in one payment before the big day or by creating a manageable instalment payment plan.

CEO Justin says, ''The average age of the Irish person getting married is 35 – and so the concept of online payment is second nature to them and is expected by this consumer.''

He continued, ''Getting married is one of the most important moments in a person’s life so it should be a fun, stress-free and manageable experience."

Basically, this platform takes the stress out of what can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life, meaning you'll have more time to enjoy the build-up.

And that sounds good to us.

To sign up to Wedding Wallet for free as a vendor or couple, visit weddingwallet.ie or @weddingwallet_ on social media.


Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus like to keep things chill and casual, by the sounds of things.

The adorable couple married in a quaint living room ceremony at the end of last year, and surprised us all. Miley only had ONE request for the special day, and it's pretty unconventional.

Speaking to E! News at the MusiCares event, she told the outlet that she asked her fiance at the time for "Literally, vegan chicken and dumplings." Alright, then. Each bride to their own.


A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on

Miley is a woman of simple taste, and we'll take ANY detail at all about their low-key nuptials. They're a relatable couple, seemingly, but we'd definitely be more picky about the dress than dumplings.

"That was my only rider," she said. "I would do anything for dumplings. You could add nothing else. I didn't even need a dress. I was trying to wear leggings and a hoodie. I just wanted dumplings, that's all."

Judging by THOSE amazing wedding snaps on Instagram, it seems like the pair had an incredible wedding day.


A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on

While attending the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year Gala, Miley and her parents honoured her godmother, Dolly Parton.

She made sure to give a KILLAH performance with Shawn Mendes while she was there, because why not? She also walked the red carpet on Liam's behalf the other night for the premiere of his new flick, Isn't It Romantic.

Miley and Liam have us feelin' pretty damn jealous of how pure goals-y they are. We wish we could have gone to their wedding soirée, we do enjoy dumplings.


Selena Gomez has been keeping a very low-profile of late, only recently making a quiet return to her social media stage.

The 26-year-old Come and Get It singer is coming back to our Spotify playlists this year, collaborating with Julia Michaels on her upcoming EP track Anxiety.

While the rest of us spent our weekends in a burrito blanket, bingeing Sex Education on Netflix, Selena was throwing her BFF a BRIDAL SHOW from heaven.


A post shared by CJB (@courtneyjbarry) on

Selena's certified #1 Hun Courtney Barry captioned the gorgeous post of polaroid snaps; "A few of my perfect girls threw me a perfect shower."

Oh look, Selena herself is in the background. Looking happy, relaxed and stunning in a red dress that's GASPing for spring to come.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the singer in her friends photos, having organised the event for her BFF Courtney.


The singer and her long-time bestie have known each other years, with Gomez thanking her in numerous posts for her strength and kindness.

The pair even got matching #1 tattoos to solidify their everlasting friendship, dang that is CUTE.

Now it's Courtney's turn to get married, and Selena looks like she's supporting her like a great pal. 


A post shared by  (@selenagomez) on

She captioned this post; 

"The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are moved by the littlest stories to the most heartbreaking ones, you will give someone your perfume if they say you smell nice, you are freaking hilarious and always stand firm in your faith, a loving sister, an amazing friend and a beautiful daughter."

"You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby!"

Selena has taken time out from the spotlight after continuous physical and mental health issues, we can't wait to see what 2019 has in store for the gal.

Hopefully she has found the help she needs and deserves, it looks like she's got a wonderful bunch of pals around her.


You know that lurching feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when your friends tell you they've decided to get hitched?

It's not because you're jealous or think they're wrong for each other – you just know your bank account is gonna take a serious hit.

Although you look forward to getting involved in their big day, cutting corners to save money on your outfit, hair, make up and travel arrangements are a must.

That's why if this bride was our friend, we wouldn't be friends anymore.

She has taken the phrase bridezilla to the next level…and we just can't even.

The dress code alone would get the ultimate unfriend and block from us as it's hideous, insulting AND pricey AF.

The demands are so outrageous that the screenshot of the Facebook post has gone viral – so buckle up, because it's gonna piss you off.

It starts with: "The dress code is very specific because it will be used to create an incredible visual effect."

The guests have been given a measly year and a half to meet her outfit requirements for her big Hawaii wedding, and "if done right it will make our synchronised dancing along the beach really pop".

That's all grand, until she gave TWO outfit choices based on her guests' weight…speechless.

Credit: Facebook

The ladies who are 11ish stone or under, they need to source a green velvet sweater, orange suede pants, Louboutin heels and a Burberry scarf.

For your visual pleasure we are recreated the requirements and honestly, the outfit is vile – you might as well burn your money now.

And for those who are lucky enough to be over that size, they get all black trousers, jumpers and shoes.

To be honest, if I was under 11 stone, I'd see the year and a half as an opportunity to gain the needed weight to fit into the black outfit group.

Male guests were also hit with the outfit requirements, those under 14 stone need to wear a purple fuzzy jackets, soda hats, all white trainers and plain glow sticks.

For those who tip the scales over that weight, they must wear head-to-toe in camouflage with black trainers – terrifying.

Oh and don't think you can escape the wedding outfit horrors by going cheap, the future bride stated there was a minimum spend requirement on your hideous ensemble.

"Please, if you look like trash, so will we. All jokes aside, we want you to invest in an outfit valued at at least $1,000. This includes jewellery, accessories, makeup and hair. Remember ladies and gents, this wedding is 24k themed for a reason," she wrote.

She finished the post by saying: "You have a year and a half to get working. No excuses! Mwah."

It's safe to say that we imagine that this wedding will receive a sh*t tonne of cancellations.

And honestly, we don't blame them.

I'd just go on the holiday to Hawaii and spend the grand on having a deadly time instead of buying a terrible outfit.
