One step closer to the aisle! Sydney Rae James celebrated her bridal shower on Sunday, June 5, where she was surrounded by close family and friends.

The elegant shower, which was organized and hosted by James’ sister, country singer Jessie James Decker, featured plenty of southern charm. The future bride also got a taste of what it will be like to take the spotlight when she becomes Mrs. Anthony Bass at her wedding in January 2017.

“Still can’t get over how amazing my shower was yesterday!!” Sydney wrote on Monday, June 6, alongside a split of numerous photos. “So many sweet/thoughtful gifts! I have so much Bass and B stuff now🤗 so excited to decorate!! ❤️❤️❤️ so blessed!! I have the best friends and family #becomingbass#bridalshower.”

For the Sunday shower, the bride-to-be dressed adorably in a ladylike, white, lace dress. Shower guests were invited to use the hashtag #becomingbass to commemorate the event.

One party-goer captured a beautiful moment between Sydney Rae and her mother. The bride-to-be is skimming, “Recipes For My Daughter” – a gift from her mom she will undoubtedly cherish for years to come.

The future bride announced her engagement back in February. She shared with The Knot in an exclusive interview that Bass proposed during a hike.

“He stopped, we gazed upon the amazing view and then he got down on one knee, opened the little box and asked me to be his wife. I got so excited I leapt into his arms and didn’t even get a look at the ring,” the Southern Girl City Lights blogger told us.  “I said yes and started crying and he smiled and laughed and asked me if I wanted the ring. I said “yes” and he placed it on my finger and we hugged and smiled and haven’t stopped smiling yet.”

Sydney also revealed to us at the time that she’s been planning her wedding since she was a little girl. “I’ve always wanted a small garden wedding,” she told us following Bass’ mountaintop proposal. “I can’t wait for our special day! We have lots of ideas.”
