We couldn’t be happier for ‘Manzo’d With Children’ star Lauren and her longtime love, Vito Scalia! The cute couple got engaged on Nov. 12 — and guess which ‘RHONJ’ cast members called to congratulate them?
We loved seeing Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia‘s love grow for one another on The Real Housewives of New Jersey! Nobody celebrates quite like the Manzo family — so what familiar faces can we expect to see in the couple’s wedding party?
Lauren Manzo & Vito Scalia Engaged
“Uncle Chris Laurita and Aunt Jacqueline Laurita were there the night Vito proposed, and I’ve received calls and texts from Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga noting how happy they are for us and that they look forward to attending the wedding,” Lauren told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Lauren, 25, will make a gorgeous bride — and we can’t help but notice how beautiful her sparkler is, too! Vito asked Lauren’s jeweler since she was 17, Yanina, to make her diamond ring with white and rose gold accents.
“I remember seeing the ring, and I couldn’t believe he pulled off what I always wanted,” Lauren told People. “I am obsessed with it. I don’t know how many carats it is because he won’t tell me.”
She also said she wants to look like a princess on her wedding day, but hasn’t decided on one designer at this point. So who will be in their wedding?
“[Lauren’s brothers] Chris Manzo and Albie Manzo — both of whom have become Vito’s good friends — will be groomsmen, and Uncle Chris and Jacqueline’s kids will definitely be in the wedding party,” she said.
How fabulous! Lauren knows it will be an exciting and hectic road ahead with wedding planning, and will no doubt have the help of mom and Manzo’d With Children star Caroline Manzo. She says, “Knowing I’m going to marry the love of my life makes it all worth it!”
