Here comes the bride!! Lauren Manzo, 26, is set to marry Vito Scalia in two months, and the pre-festivities have officially kicked off with Lauren’s bridal shower, held Sunday afternoon at her parents Franklin Lakes, NJ mansion. The event was hosted by Lauren’s mom, Caroline Manzo. Lauren thanked her mom in a poignant Instagram post,
“Today @carolinemanzo threw me the Most beautiful & perfect Bridal Shower! Thank you so much Mom! You are the best person I know & I love you! My Bridesmaids and aunts and friends helped with so much & I feel so overwhelmed with love! Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us I am so grateful to all of you!”
The decor was girlie, feminine with floral details. A perfect setting for the noticeably new svelte, Lauren Manzo.
A lot of care went into every detail, down to the custom cupcakes.
Bravo cameras rolled for the event!
Viewers watched the young “Manzo’d with Children” star’s relationship bloom with her future groom on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and now the big day is right around the corner! Lots of fun was had by all, as evidenced by these cute pics, posted on social media.
