She said “yes” to the dress! Lauren Manzo committed to a wedding gown on Monday, Aug. 11, with a little help from her former Real Housewives of New Jersey star mother, Caroline Manzo.
Lauren, 26, shopped for her special dress at the Vera Wang Bridal House on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Engaged to longtime love Vito Scalia, she tried on dresses with Caroline, 52, by her side, as well as cousin Candice Laurita and friend Laura Edria.
“Wedding gown shopping with @carolinemanzo @candicelaurita & @lauraedria,” Lauren captioned a glamour shot of three champagne glasses toasting at the Vera Wang shop in New York City. The reality star’s massive engagement ring can be seen in the photo on her manicured hand.
The shopping trip was successful as both Caroline and Lauren later shared that the bride-to-be had picked a dress.
“My little girl @laurenmanzo said yes to the dress!” Caroline wrote with a cute photo of Lauren and her two special bridesmaids in the wedding shop sipping champagne.
Lauren chimed in, writing, “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.”
Caroline’s daughter will wear the Vera Wang gown next year when she exchanges vows with Scalia. The happy couple got engaged in November 2013, after Scalia got to know Lauren as a best friend of her brothers Albie and Chris, and began dating her years ago.
“I’m so incredibly happy!!” Lauren told Us Weekly at the time. “I’m in shock. I’m so excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Well he was my brothers’ best friend first, but I stole him!”
