The 26-year-old launched her new IGTV show on Instagram on Friday and right away promised to share some MAFS ‘tea,’ meaning gossip.

The production allocated her a budget for accessories, the bridemaid’s dresses and her Mariana Hardwick wedding dress, worth $5,995. 

 ‘What they’d given us was definitely enough just your basic needs,’ Cathy explained.

She added: ‘With that money, I couldn’t get my hair done, or a spray tan or my nails done or anything like that. That was something I had to look after. 

‘They looked after accessories, the bridesmaids dresses and my own dress. My dress was from Mariana Hardwick.’

She also revealed while they weren’t able to choose a location for the wedding, they were allowed some input.

Daily Mail Australia have reached out to Cathy and Channel Nine for comment. 

Cathy wasn’t the first Married At First Sight bride to share her grievances about the show’s budget.

Mishel Karen told the Not Here To Make Friends podcast that the cast were given strict rules about what they could wear to dinner parties and repeating outfits was off-limits.  

‘The girls want to look half decent, and we can’t ever wear the same outfit twice, so we were hiring clothes, we pay for all of it. We do [our own makeup],’ Mishel said.
