After getting engaged to longtime boyfriend Vito Scalia earlier this week, Lauren Manzo is dishing on all the details, right down to info about her fiancé’s pre-proposal grooming habits. The daughter of The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Caroline Manzo also dropped some clues about what kind of wedding she and Vito will have – and when we can expect ceremony to happen.
Opening up to People about the momentous day Vito popped the question, Lauren said, “Vito went and got a shave, his eyebrows waxed and a haircut. Then he showed up at 5:30 wearing a sportscoat even though I normally have to force him to dress up.” She continued, “He had a big bouquet of red roses and got down on one knee. When I looked up, both of our families were in the window and he was crying and shaking and I’m hysterically crying. It was amazing – the moment that every girl waits for.”
And how ‘bout that gorgeous diamond ring he presented her with? “I remember seeing the ring, and I couldn’t believe he pulled off what I always wanted,” the 25- year old says. “I am obsessed with it. I don’t know how many carats it is because he won’t tell me, but when I go out to eat with my friends I make them wear it, so I can see what it looks like.” The diamond sparkler, which was designed by Lauren’s favorite jeweler Yanina, is accented by white and rose gold.
Lauren also dished about what kind of wedding she wants. “I want the bridesmaids to wear wedding dresses, too. Mine will be snow white, and they will be in ivory or cream,” she told People. The couple is tentatively planning on next summer for a wedding date, and they’re also considering the venue. A potential frontrunner is the chapel at Scalia alma mater, Fordham University, which the bride-to-be says is “gorgeous.”
As for whether or not we can expect to see a televised wedding event from one of reality TV’s most well-known families, Caroline Manzo says it’s a possibility. Even though the Manzos are no longer part of The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast and they’ve been hard at work on their spin-off show, Manzo’d with Children, it sounds like they just might find time to film a wedding extravaganza. Caroline told Us Weekly, “There are a lot of things I keep to myself because it’s important to maintain that sense of family outside of the show. It’s ultimately Lauren and Vito’s decision, but to not show that is kind of not fair. You’d probably see just a little of it to get a flavor of it. I think the fans deserve that.”
