All the Details on Snooki's Great Gatsby-Themed Bridal Shower!


Snooki's long-awaited wedding to Jionni LaValle is almost here! The Jersey Shore alumna celebrated her impending nuptials at a Great Gatsby-themed bridal shower in her hometown of Poughkeepsie, New York, last weekend, with plenty of her pals and former co-stars in attendance.

Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Deena Cortese, along with 100 or so other guests (including her 18 bridesmaids) showed up dressed in vintage, '20s-style outfits. (The theme fits with the one that Snooki (real name: Nicole Polizzi) picked out for her fall wedding.) Snooki's BFF, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley, skipped the event, as it was a week after she gave birth.

Her absence didn't seem to put a damper on Snooki's spirit, as she shared several Instagrams of the afternoon, including one of her with her son Lorenzo (at top), and her seating card (above). "Had such an amazing day with friends and family. Blessed to have genuine & beautiful people in my life," she tweeted at the end of her fun-filled party.

The whole event was doubly exciting for the reality star, who's pregnant with her second child. Though her pregnancy announcement led some to suspect that she'd put off her wedding until after her second baby arrived, she quickly dashed those rumors.

"I'm due in the fall around my wedding time," she said in April. "Busy year!"
