Congratulations to Lauren Manzo! The former ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star said ‘yes’ to the dress on Aug. 11, while shopping with mom, Caroline Manzo and two of her bridesmaids at the Vera Wang shop in New York City.
Lauren Manzo, 26, certainly has plenty to smile about! Showing off her recent weight loss, the glowing bride looked stunning on Aug. 11, when she and mom, Caroline Manzo, 52, found her perfect wedding gown. Lauren is set to marry her longtime love, Vito Scalia next year, and fans will get to see all of the wedding planning drama when the family’s new show, Manzo’d With Children premieres Oct. 5, on Bravo!
Lauren Manzo Wedding Dress
It looks like Lauren had the most relaxing wedding dress shopping experience ever! Us Weekly reported that she visited the Vera Wang Bridal House on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, and found her perfect dress with the help of her mother, along with her cousin, Candice Laurita and friend Laura Edria.
We are sure that is was a very special moment between the extremely close mother-daughter duo. We can’t wait to see more of it when their Real Housewives of New Jersey spinoff, Manzo’d With Children premieres on Oct. 5.
The stunning star took to Instagram to share the wedding dress hunt experience with her fans, and while she did not show which dress she picked, Caroline shared a picture of some stunning Vera designs!
In Lauren’s first picture, the bride-to-be is seen doing a champagne toast with her shopping companions, and of course showing off her incredible engagement ring. Captioning the cute pic, “Wedding gown shopping with @carolinemanzo@candicelaurita & @lauraedria.”
It was all smiles on the big day! Lauren gave her friends a special shout out in a second black and white picture. “Thank you to my 2 best friends/matrons of honor/ sisters for coming with me to buy my wedding dress today it meant the world to me that you both did whatever you could to be there @candicelaurita@lauraedria “
