Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi of MTV's Jersey Shore fame has been engaged to fiancé Jionni Lavalle since March 2012, and after the birth of her two children (Lorenzo, 2, and Giovanna Marie, 1 month) these two proud parents are ready to make their union official.
In April, the Daily Mail reported that Snooki and Jionni had set an October 2014 wedding date, meaning these two will tie the knot within the next three weeks! "Basically, me and Jionni are doing what people do in a lifetime in four months," Snooki told NJ.com in August. "With getting married, having a baby... a second baby. Moving into our dream house. It's just insane."
After Snooki's Great Gatsby-inspired bridal shower, it's clear that the couple is still planning to host a '20s-themed wedding day. NJ.com reports that the bride will don a "a classic, vintage-type look" without even a hint of her signature leopard! "I know a lot of people when they thought of me getting married or when they heard it for the first time, they were like, 'Okay, she's probably going to wear a leopard dress or something very gaudy. And to be honest with you, I'm kind of over that leopard stage," the pint-sized reality star said.
As for their venue, it appears the Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey will be the site of their ceremony and reception. Although Toniann Bottignoli, the Venetian's Director of Dales, would not confirm whether or not the duo would tie the knot there, city officials for the town accidentally did. In early September, Garfield drafted a new ordinance that regulated filming in the city, which outlines that permits need to be obtained in order to film on any sidewalk or street within the town's jurisdiction. And, as luck would have it, MTV Productions reportedly approached the town earlier this year to get permission to shoot.
It sounds like we won't have to wait much longer to see what Snooki and Jionni have in store for their wedding day after all!
