Leave it to Miley Cyrus to not come in like a Wrecking Ball for her own wedding. The pop singer revealed at the MusiCares Person of the Year gala honoring her idol, Dolly Parton, that she had just one request for her low-key December wedding.
“Literally, vegan chicken and dumplings,” Cyrus told E! News of her one must-have. “That was my only rider. I would do anything for dumplings. You could add nothing else. I didn’t even need a dress; I was trying to wear leggings and a hoodie. I just wanted dumplings, that’s all.”
As it turned out, Cyrus did end up changing into a dress—a Vivienne Westwood gown at that—for the living room wedding, but we’re willing to bet that she did also get the vegan and chicken dumplings that she asked for.
The rest of their reception food included some simple staples as well: a two-tiered wedding cake, banana pudding, champagne and sparkling water, according to Elle.
Cyrus’ mother, Tish, told E! News that welcoming Liam Hemsworth into the family has been a smooth transition, due in large part to the fact that Cyrus, 26, and Hemsworth, 29, have been together on-and-off for a decade already.
“Liam has been a part of our family for so long,” Tish told E! News. “They’ve been together since she was 16 years old. So it’s like, it’s almost like not a lot different, I mean, it is a little bit, but it’s really not because he’s just [been] a part of our family for so long that sometimes I actually kinda forget it happened until somebody askes, and then I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, that did happen!’”
Earlier this year, Hemsworth told Extra that it actually turned out to be quite easy to gather their close friends and family together for the wedding, which he called a “spur-of-the-moment kind of thing.”
“It wasn’t hard,” he said. “We have a small group of friends.”
And earlier this week, Hemsworth again made headlines when he revealed that Cyrus will take his name: “Miley Ray Hemsworth.”
“She will still be obviously known as Miley Cyrus,” he said. “But she took my name, which is great. That was honestly one of the best things about it. I didn’t ask her to take my name, but she was like, ‘No. Of course I’m taking your name.’”
