Ruth Scott has admitted that planning her upcoming wedding to boyfriend Rob Morgan has been a cakewalk for her as he has turned into a groomzilla.

The radio presenter is set to tie the knot with her partner of five years later this month at Bunratty Castle in Co Clare.

Far from being stressed out, Ruth revealed that, with just over two weeks to go, her wedding dress is still not finished but she's "not bothered".

"Full disclosure: Rob has done the lion's share of the work," she said.

"He likes to keep an eye on room bookings and RSVPs to invites - which we sent electronically, so he would know who hadn't even opened their email to read the pdf and be able to follow up.

"We joked all along that Rob was the groomzilla. He likes being really organised and I love waiting until the last possible moment." The former 2fm star put her music skills to use and looked after the tunes for their special day, but she said she has kicked back and relaxed otherwise.

"I got to be a bit picky over the band and the DJ, as that's my area of expertise. It hasn't been stressful at all," she said.

While she was looking forward to walking up the aisle, Ruth reckoned getting married wouldn't have much of an impact on her relationship with Rob after the newlywed bliss wears off.

"I think for the first year or so we might have a glow of being newlyweds about us," she said. "We'll probably try and get an upgrade every time we get on a plane or even Dublin Bus. But I imagine that life will settle back down pretty quickly into a lovely routine.

"I've had Rob unwavering by my side for nearly five years. That won't change at all, not even a marriage certificate could make it stronger."

The broadcaster said the toughest part about planning the day was trying to decide how many guests they would invite. They've plumped for around 200.

Unlike other Irish names such as Andrea Roche and Rosanna Davison, who took their nearest and dearest abroad for their weddings, Ruth and Rob wanted theirs closer to home.

"We decided early on that we didn't mind where in Ireland it was," said Ruth. "Dragging 200 guests over to Italy or Portugal wasn't ever on the cards for us.

"We both have a bit of a connection with Bunratty, so we got in touch with a friend of mine who's the manager of Bunratty Castle Hotel. From the start, we both wanted to have a day that was great fun, that our family and friends would come to and hopefully have a blast at."
