Strippers are typically involved in the bachelorette party — not the bridal shower — but don't tell Nicole that.
The budding actress took things up a notch during tonight's Loosely Exactly Nicole, when she encouraged her stripper-in-training to liven up her gal pal Gemma's pre-wedding festivities. While conservative shower cohost Veronica vehemently disagreed with phallic ice cubes and cocktail umbrellas, the Daisy Dukes-wearing Omaha native wound up being a hit with the ladies, including the bride-to-be who lost eight pounds as a result of a stripper-related injury. Er, everybody wins?
In honor of Nicole's bridal shower to remember, we're taking a look back at some of our favorite bridal fêtes -- thrown for MTV's finest:
Lauren Conrad of The Hills
As one would expect, Lauren's bridal shower was flawlessly classic, with floral accents, custom cocktail napkins and fine, vintage-inspired china.
Maci Bookout of Teen Mom OG
Nicole Polizzi of Snooki & JWOWW
Snooki commemorated her memorable bridal shower in style alongside her son Lorenzo. "I don’t like things that are so classy," she said of her party. "My bridal shower was dress-up, and I had everyone come in Gatsby-themed outfits. I wanted it to be fun and for everyone to get their drink on."
Catelynn Lowell of Teen Mom OG
Whitney Port of The City
The stunning fashionista sure fooled us last year by posting a selfie while wearing a white dress and a romantic updo — but it was merely a photo from her bridal shower before her nuptials to longtime beau Tim Rosenman. "Just to clear the air, I did NOT get married this weekend," she said of the shot. "I was just showered with love at my beautiful bridal shower with some of the most special ladies in my life."
Kristin Cavallari of The Hills
K-Cav's bridal shindig was fit for a Laguna Beach princess, complete with a bejeweled tiara and essential "Bride to Be" sash.
