Kim Kardashian is one important step closer to becoming Mrs. Kanye West.

The E! star celebrated her upcoming nuptials at a surprise bridal shower thrown in her honor Saturday at The Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills.

Mom Kris Jenner and sisters Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian organized the intimate gathering, which started at 10 a.m. and was attended by just a small group of family members and friends of the bride-to-be.

As she headed to the event, Kim looked stunning in a body-hugging, white dress complete with a pearl string halter strap, flashing her massive engagement sparkler as she placed her hands inside of the side pockets of her dress.

Following the shower, Kim posted several shots of herself posing in a photo booth with friends who attended the fete, including Larsa Pippen, Rachel Roy, Brittny Gastineau, Simone Harouche, Ciara, Leah Jenner and a few of Kanye's family members.

"Oui! Saturday wedding shower," Roy posted on Instagram, along with a shot of a gorgeous cream, white and yellow table setting that included a white ceramic Eiffel Tower wrapped in a white bow.

Khloe Kardashian also got in on the fun, posting several shots as well of herself posing with Kim, Kris Jenner, and her BFFs Khadijah and Malikah Haqq.

In the printed shots a small "Kanye [hearts] Kim" is visible in the top right corner.


After the shower, Kim lunched at La Scala with her mom, BFF Jonathan Cheban and his mom, then popped in Table Art, a home goods boutique, according to one onlooker, who noted the foursome "appeared to be having a great time." 

Wedding preparations are in full swing for Kim and Kanye, though the close-knit circle privy to what's really going down has remained loyally tight-lipped when it comes to the details.

"It's a big, private day, and I'm not going to be the one to ruin it. I'm not getting killed at dinner tonight!" Jonathan joked on E! News Thursday. 

"I just keep my mouth shut, you know," he added, "and it's going to be a really special day and that's it."

Kim and Kanye plan on tying the knot in a civil ceremony to seal the legal deal before swapping vows in a more lavish fashion in Paris, where the two have counted on having their dream wedding since getting engaged in October.

We know that Kim's designer gown is all picked out and she has chosen a color scheme and outfits for her bridesmaids.

Otherwise, she's been keeping busy shooting down the various rumors out there, such as that she and her rap star fiancé are already married (false!), that they've invited 1,600 people to the wedding (false!) and that they're filming their wedding for Keeping Up With the Kardashians (wrong again!).

"Unless you hear it from us please don't believe nonsense!" Kim reminded her fans.
