Luann de Lesseps is getting closer to her big day!
The Real Housewives of New York star is set to marry Thomas D'Agostino Jr. on New Year's Eve in Palm Beach, Fla., but like any bride, she has to check a couple things off her list ahead of tying the knot.
She's already put in a lot of hard work, revealing she picked out her three (yes, three) dresses for the big night, set up the band and the caterer and sent out Save the Dates. Now, it's time for her to be pampered a bit.
E! News has learned de Lesseps threw her bridal shower in the Big Apple on Wednesday night.
An insider tells us she invited 30-40 girlfriends for a dinner, which was held at the home of one of her close friends who is not on the show. It was a girls only party, and thus, her soon-to-be hubby did not make an appearance.
We're also told de Lesseps requested that all of the women wear tiaras as she donned her own that said "Bride to Be." Guests were treated to, what else, a male stripper during the festivities, a source adds to E! News.
As for the upcoming ceremony, we know de Lesseps and D'Agostino will ring in 2017 by saying, "I do!" We also know the reality star has some pretty big plans for her attire.
"I'm actually doing a couple of wedding dresses because it's a big occasion," she said in an interview in August "I'm doing a traditional [dress] to walk down the aisle—lace not puffy. I've never been a puffy girl, type of person. Fitted and lacy and at the same time a little sexy, and I'm going to wear a veil."
Since it will be D'Agostino's first wedding, she wants the ceremony to be traditional. "Tom has never been married so I want him to have a real bride," she said. "I want him to see a bride down the aisle. [so] my thoughts are why not wear white? I'm doing a little white cream, a little blush."
Meanwhile, de Lesseps and D'Agostino got engaged in February in New York City. Previously, LuAnn was married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps for 16 years before getting divorced in 2009.
