Teresa Giudice celebrated her upcoming wedding to fiancé, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, with a few Bravolebrties at her bridal shower over the weekend.
On Saturday, Teresa, 50, was showered by close family and friends, including RHONJ veterans, Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin (along with Jennifer’s daughter), RHONJ newbies, Danielle Cabral and Caroline Rauseo, and RHOP’s Ashley Darby.
Teresa donned a strapless corset dress paired with white heels as she posed for snaps with loved ones in front of a beautiful, rose-covered wall. Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin, and Ashley Darby took to Instagram to wish the bride-to-be a lifetime of marital bliss.
“Showers of happiness for my @teresagiudice ❤️❤️❤️,” Dolores captioned an Instagram photo alongside Teresa and Jennifer. Jennifer wrote, “Love celebrating your happiest moments with you @teresagiudice #LouResa #chosenfamily.” Ashley posted a couple of snaps with the future Mrs. Ruelas and wrote “We are so excited for your big day Tre!! ♥️ 👰🏻” in the caption.
Louie popped the question to Teresa in October 2021 after dating for just a little over one year. “As he’s [proposing], the sparklers are going off and then the fireworks are going off, so I’m like a little kid, just looking all around,” Teresa told Entertainment Tonight about the romantic, beachside proposal. “He said, ‘So, babe, will you marry me?’ And I said, ‘Yeah!’ It was really magical,” she added. “It was so beautiful. I’ll never forget it. It was like something you always wanted.
Teresa and Louie’s engagement also came one year after Teresa finalized her divorce from Joe Giudice with whom she shares four daughters: Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12.
Unlike Joe Giudice, Louie is very involved in the wedding planning, according to Teresa. “Wedding plans are going amazing. Luis is involved with me, and I love that,” She told Page Six in May. “We’re doing it together, so it’s not just me.” Teresa added, “I remember my first wedding; I did it by myself. But [Luis is] involved, and I love that.”
Teresa and Louie are set to tie the knot on Saturday, August 6, 2022, in New Jersey.
