A feast for all the senses. Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles star Heather Bilyeu thought of everything for her bridal shower in Beverly Hills on March 6 — including a personalized keepsake for her guests.
The lavish fete featured pretty feminine touches including a Sugarfina candy bar with color-coordinated sweet treats, but one of the biggest hits at the party was a custom fragrance bar by Kamilyin, where friends and family got to create their very own perfume by combining their favorites from 30 different scents.
But the bride-to-be, 31, who's set to tie the knot in April with costar Josh Altman, was also proud of the rose-filled flower wall that she and the guests, including four generations of her family, used as a backdrop for their pics.
"It’s been a little dream that I’ve been wanting to have at some sort of party," she told Us Weekly exclusively at the celebration.
The Bravo personality wore a white lace dress from Abyss by Abby and a "love" lariat necklace that she designed with her jeweler, as she laughed with friends and family at the afternoon event.
Each guest wrote a piece of advice for the bride on a paper heart tied to a flower-filled tree — "Never, ever, argue with clothes on!" one pal suggested — as they sipped on Ferrari-Carano wine and enjoyed a three-course meal featuring a wild arugula salad with strawberries and Marcona almonds, entrees including halibut with mango and pineapple salsa and crème brulee for dessert.
Bilyeu, who was joined later by Altman at the party, tells Us that while her shower was very feminine and floral, their wedding, which will take place in Aspen, Colorado, has a less girly theme. "My wedding is like a rustic glam chic, so very, very, very different," she said.
The couple, who previously put their wedding on hold in July 2014, can't wait to walk down the aisle on April 2.
"When we were planning the first wedding it was crazy and chaotic and we were so busy, the busiest I think we’ve ever been with our careers catapulting," the reality star said. This time around, "it’s a lot more manageable — and it’s just a lighter, fun vibe and it’s not about other people, it’s about us as a couple."
"We're excited," she added, saying that Altman has been involved with the wedding planning. "It really reflects who we are as a couple and where we are in our relationship."
