We're officially one step closer to another Bachelor Nation wedding! Lauren Burnham, who is set to marry last season'sThe Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr. on January 12 (excuse us, JanuLARIE 12), celebrated the ultimate pre-wedding rite of passage this past weekend—her bridal shower.

Both Burnham and her reality TV fiancé documented the festivities through their Instagram stories. Hosted in the future bride's hometown, Virginia Beach, Virginia, the bridal shower took on a tropical Maui theme in honor of their wedding venue.

Luyendyk Jr., who showcased the event's decorations before getting "kicked out" with the rest of the men, revealed a floral-infused archway welcoming guests and a gorgeous outdoor tropical table setup. "They went all out for my love," he wrote.

Burnham, who stunned in two separate white dresses for the occasion, posted a cute video surrounded by her girlfriends (and potential bridesmaids?). "We're getting maui'd," she wrote. The former Bachelor contestant also posed for a picture embracing her mother, Pamela.

The bridal shower naturally had no shortage of JanuLARIE-themed desserts, as well. One indoor table featured quite the spread, including personalized cookies decorated with the betrothed pair's name and wedding date. "Getting in the spirit," Burnham wrote of the party treats.

And, about their wedding hashtag—Luyendyk Jr. recently called on Twitter fans to help generate some inspo. The majority of the results weren't exactly something you would want to share with your wedding guests, but the couple may have chosen one suggestion. Luyendyk Jr.'s Instagram story showed a young boy, presumably a family member of Burnham's, sporting a t-shirt with "#sArieNOTsArie" emblazoned on the back. How...cute?

Lauren Burnham and Arie Luyendyk Jr. haven't exactly had the most traditional romance, to put it lightly. But, from their engagement photos to the recent bridal shower, the couple seems to be taking full advantage of every pre-wedding formality. Next up on deck? Corresponding bachelor and bachelorette parties in honor of the eponymous ABC franchise that started it all.
