Brittany Cartwright is going back in time as a bride-to-be. The Vanderpump Rules star returned to her Kentucky roots for a Great Gatsby-themed bridal shower and “mini bachelorette” held at The Roxy in Lexington, Kentucky, over the weekend, Entertainment Tonight reports.
Cartwright posted several photos to Instagram to showcase her bridal weekend with family and close friends in her home state. In the photos, the 30-year-old Bravo star appears to have taken inspiration from the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald book The Great Gatsby.
In her Instagram post, Brittany Cartwright is pictured looking glamorous in a white flapper dress with gold sequins, as well as a white fur boa, gloves, pearl necklace, and an embellished headpiece. The bride-to-be is holding a glass of champagne as she stands in front of a marquee that reads “6 29 19,” her wedding day with fiancé Jax Taylor.
Cartwright’s Instagram story also features highlights from the bridal bash, which included a party bus, champagne, 1920s-themed cookies, and plenty of dancing as she and her guests partied in flapper dresses and feather headbands.
For Brittany Cartwright’s accompanying “mini bachelorette” party, the guests reportedly scored “team bride” shot glasses as well as some NSFW souvenirs, according to E! Online.
Jax Taylor also shared photos from his bride’s big day. In addition to a snap of Brittany wearing a bridal veil during her “first” bachelorette party, Taylor posted a photo of Brittany holding one of her bridal shower gifts: A handpainted wooden sign that touts the couple’s married name of Cauchi and the year of their wedding.
