The groom organised the wedding in IKEA Dublin on Don't Tell The Bride last night

“I’m standing in IKEA in a wedding dress.”

DON’T TELL THE Bride returned to RTÉ 2 last night – and it was back with a bang.

Dublin couple Ben and Celina were in the hotseat, and needless to say they didn’t exactly see eye to eye on how the big day was going to pan out:

Celina’s dream venue was the palatial Powerscourt House & Gardens – and her tour of the grounds only made her want it more.

But Ben had a slightly different vision.

He was already getting shown around IKEA as an actual wedding venue

And people watching at home were all thinking along the same lines

On the morning of the wedding, Ben is getting ready and assessing his chances of success:

“I could be in deep trouble or I could pull it off. It’s 50/50 I think. In my mind it’s a great idea but that’s just me, so yeah, hope for the best”

After a few alterations, Celina was happy with the dress – now she just needed to find out the location

As she was leaving the house, the lads were arriving into IKEA

“I just hope we don’t pull up outside somewhere ridiculous”

After pulling off for what could only be IKEA, Celina went through all the emotions:

Tell me you’re messin’
Tell me you’re just driving in here for the craic
Oh sweet Jesus

“Why am I standing in an IKEA car park?”

Navigating the escalator was tricky

But when they saw each other everything was OK

They just needed to make their way through soft furnishings to get back to the car

People were really impressed with how it worked out

The IKEA decision could have been a complete disaster, but it actually worked out so well

“It’ll be a walk down memory lane every time they go shopping in IKEA.”
