This bride-to-be is going to have the wedding of her dreams after discovering she won €120,409 in last night's Lotto draw.

The Dublin girl - who claimed the prize with a €5 Quick Pick ticket - realised her luck was in when she stopped to buy a scratchcard this morning.

Wishing to remain anonymous, the lucky lassie intends to splurge on a wedding band and expand her guest list for her upcoming nuptials.

"That’s the best part of a wedding, so I want a band that’ll get people moving," she said as she collected her cheque at the Lottery HQ.

Her fiancée will be counting his lucky stars too as she intends to upgrade both his and her own car, while using the remainder of the funds to pay down her mortgage and "make life a little easier".

The delighted winner bought her ticket in Spar, Ballybrit in Parkmore, Co. Galway on the day of the draw.
