Lauren Alaina’s wedding day is approaching and the country star enjoyed one final shower before she and her fiancé, Cameron Arnold, say “I do.” 

Gathered Together With Parents And Soon-To-Be In-Laws

The Georgia native recently gathered with her mom, Kristy Suddeth, her dad, J.J. Suddeth, and her soon-to-be in-laws to celebrate her upcoming marriage to Arnold. 

Sporting a white sequin dress for the occasion, Alaina was all smiles as she posed with her parents and Arnold’s parents with her fiancé by her side. 

“Our last shower before the big day,” the country star wrote across the Instagram slideshow. 

In true Lauren Alaina fashion, her caption included a pun: “It’s pretty apPARENT how loved we are. I am so proud that Cameron and I are bringing these families together. We are so blessed 🥲”  She also included the hashtags “bride to be” and “almost married.” 

Wedding Festivities In Full Swing

The couple’s wedding festivities officially kicked off in late October with a wedding shower. At the time, she said she was “on cloud nine.” 

“I can’t wait to marry my best friend and become Mrs. Arnold! I’m going to soak up every minute of this season of life before we say “I do” 🤍,” the singer/songwriter wrote. 

Her friends and bridesmaids later hosted a stunning shower in her honor. This event included a bouquet station where attendees had the opportunity to make custom floral bouquets at the event. Alaina gave fans an inside look at the shower on Instagram. 

“Thank you to all my girls for showering me with so much love yesterday. My heart is so full of love for all of you. I am so blessed,” she shared after the big day. 

Red Carpet Debut

This fall, Lauren and Cam made their red carpet debut at the first-ever People’s Choice Country Awards, where they walked hand-in-hand down the red carpet. Gushing over her fiancé, Alaina said, “He will forever be my People’s Choice!”

A Gigantic Wedding To Come

The couple is reportedly planning a large wedding.

“He wanted a big wedding and I did not want a big wedding, so we compromised and we’re having a gigantic wedding,” she told CMT with a laugh. 

In all seriousness, Lauren said that Cam has been “in like 18 weddings” and compared him to the character in the movie 27 Dresses. 

“That is him. He has 18 groomsmen,” she laughed.

Announced Their Engagement At The Grand Ole Opry

Lauren and Cam announced their engagement on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in November of 2022. She shocked the audience when she brought him on stage and introduced him.

“Everybody, this is my fiancé. I told him he had to come out here and we had to get a picture, so, we’re doing it because this is the circle and I’m going to hold my hand up and do the thing. Make some noise for my future husband everybody!”  

Lauren Alaina and Cam Arnold, who works in insurance, have yet to reveal their exact wedding date, but with her final shower complete, and the dress picked out, it’s likely that they will tie the knot soon. The “Thicc As Thieves” singer has one final show planned for the year on Saturday, December 16 at the Grand Ole Opry. After that, she’s not scheduled to perform again until Friday, January 19 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
