It's almost time to say "I do!"

As he prepares to swap vows with Vanessa Minnillo, Nick Lachey took time out to celebrate with a three-day bachelor party in Las Vegas this weekend.

Joined by his former 98 Degrees band mates — brother Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons (now a Chippendale's performer in Vegas) and Justin Jeffre — and other celeb pals like Matt Leinhart and Geoff Stults, Lachey, 37, partied at a cabana at Tao Beach on Friday and Saturday.

Later, when the guys headed inside to Tao's nightclub, the man of the hour was presented with a cake in the shape of a ball and chain with the words "property of Vanessa."

Skipping the Las Vegas festivities, Minnillo made sure her presence was still felt. The 30-year-old TV personality arranged for a pint-size performer to serenade Lachey and deliver a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to the group. (Minnillo was treated to a performance by a "mini Nick" at her own bachelorette party at Las Vegas hotspot Lavo in June.)

Lachey, who just returned from a trip to Africa before jetting off to Las Vegas, said his weekend festivities were far from the raucous bachelor party seen in the The Hangover.

"When you get to this point in life, you know, I'm 37, and my college roommates from two different universities, all my high school friends, [have] all [moved] on in life. A lot of these guys have kids and don't see each other as much as we used to, so this is an opportunity — or an excuse, really — to get together and tie one on for old time's sake."

Equally as low-key, says Lachey, will be his wedding to Minnillo, which will be televised as part of a TLC network special later this year.

"It's going to be an intimate [ceremony]. It's not going to be a big, blown-out, 400-person ceremony in Central Park or anything like that," says the singer. "[Our wedding is] for us, for the people in our lives who are close to us and mean a lot to us. That's the way we wanted it, and I'm happy we're able to do it that way."
