We all know how much money some people spend on their big day… New tech-centric platform Wedding Wallet, by Justin Kearns, is aiming at helping engaged Irish couples out and managing their stress levels with a new free platform -the first of its kind in Ireland- and supports the 23,000 couples that get married in Ireland every year to avoid financial heartbreak on their wedding day.
So what is it? In a nutshell, Wedding Wallet is a simple-to-use dashboard that helps engaged couples to budget, plan and pay for their big day all in one place, by connecting them to vendors based on their wedding date, location and budget. In addition, couples can receive cash gifts over the platform by sharing a private link with friends and family on request.
The ‘cashless wedding’ concept is a growing trend that sees couples favouring secure online payments rather than cash payments. With no cash passing hands the solution is a comfort to both couples and vendors. Interestingly Wedding Wallet’s research shows that 94% of Irish hotels prefer not to handle envelopes from guests or keep cash on behalf of couples.
Interested in trying it out? To use the platform, couples simply sign up to weddingwallet.ie on mobile or desktop and along with the help of Wedding Wallet’s guidance, brides and grooms-to-be can create a manageable wedding budget for every element of the big day from the dress to the DJ. Wedding Wallet’s clever technology connects couples with wedding vendors that are not only within their budget but also available on the date of their big day, reducing the time it takes to plan the wedding.
