Vanessa Minnillo celebrated her upcoming nuptials with a weekend in Las Vegas. The bachelorette party began on Friday at Lavo at the Palazzo with dinner and dancing at the hot spot. After a round of shots and a feast of signature Italian dishes, the bride-to-be and friends took over a VIP table where they danced to the sounds of DJ Politik. She jumped into the deejay booth, taking the mic and telling the crowd, “I’m about to get married. I’m about to get a ball and chain…but not yet and tonight’s my bachelorette party!” She also invited the first person who came to her table and showed an ID proving their birthday was Thursday, Friday or Saturday could come join her table — an offer she made good on when a club patron celebrating his birthday approached the table with his girlfriend.
Surprises were in store when Minnillo was serenaded by a little person impersonating her fiancé Nick Lachey. The pint-sized performer sang a song from Lachey’s former band 98 Degrees while removing his shirt. She was a good sport and donned the traditional bachelorette sash and crown while celebrating.
The party continued on Saturday at Marquee Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan as Minnillo and the group commanded a cabana at the roof deck pool party. Always the gracious hostess, she found a bachelor celebrating his own upcoming wedding and invited the groom and his friends to take a dip in her cabana’s infinity Jacuzzi.
The future Mrs. Lachey was treated to a cake topped with a sugar ring from Gimme Some Sugar as she danced around with her friends and posed for photos, showing off make up from Violet Hour at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
