Brittany Cartwright basically time traveled for her bridal shower. The Vanderpump Rules personality celebrated her upcoming wedding to Jax Taylor this weekend in Lexington, Kentucky, with a hometown bridal shower.

The event was held at the Roxy in Lexington, where Cartwright is originally from. The party, considered both a shower and a preliminary bachelorette, was Great Gatsby-themed with Cartwright dressing up for the occasion in a white flapper outfit decked out in sequins, demure white gloves, and even, a matching fur stoll.

“6.29.19,” Cartwright captioned the photo.

This particular shower was attended by Cartwright’s best friends and family members. She will have multiple showers and bachelorette parties ahead of her wedding to Taylor in June.

Cartwright and Taylor, one of the original cast members of the show, got engaged in June 2018. “I was beyond nervous,” the future groom told Entertainment Tonight of the proposal. “I blacked out and I’ve never blacked out in my life. Even drinking, drinking [a lot], I literally blacked out for a good five, six seconds after I asked! I had to sit down and I was like, I’m panicking. That took a lot. That was a lot. And it wasn’t because I was nervous about asking her. I didn’t realize how much… this is a big deal.”
