Blowout at the Brownstone!
Lauren Manzo and fiancé Vito Scalia celebrated their upcoming nuptials on Friday with an epic party at the family-owned restaurant the Brownstone in Paterson, New Jersey. Over 200 of the couple's family and friends turned out for the bash, including Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga and husband Joe, Kathy and Rich Wakile, Jacqueline Laurita and husband Chris Manzo, as well has mom Caroline, father Albert, and her brothers Albie and Chris.
"If this was the engagement party I'm scared for the wedding," Lauren wrote on Facebook.
Lauren also continued to show off her ever-slimming body: the bride-to-be was dressed in a short white dress. In February, she opened up about her determination to lost 25 pounds by April, following her breast reduction surgery last year and her Lap-Band procedure in 2012.
Lauren and Vito are set to tie the knot next year.
