Bride-to-be Sabrina Bryan celebrated her bridal shower on Sunday, Aug. 19 in Orange County, California — and the party began before she even left the house!
“One of my bridesmaids, Morgan Anderson, hosted at her beautiful home. Right as we were about to leave for the shower, a van pulled up with a huge floral arrangement from my girl [DWTS pro] Sharna Burgess, who is in New York City for work and couldn’t make the shower,” Bryan tells PEOPLE.
Bryan was fêted by 40 women at the shower, including friends, family and her “Cheetah sister” Kiely Williams, who is one of her matrons of honor for the ceremony, to be held Oct. 6 at Wayne Newton‘s Casa De Shenandoah in Las Vegas. Bryan and Newton costarred on DWTS and became close, leading the legendary singer to offer his home as the venue.
“The day was absolutely perfect!” Bryan tells PEOPLE. “The theme was ‘romantically gorgeous’ with a blush and navy color scheme.”
“Jordan came towards the middle of the shower and stayed for the rest of the party,” the singer and actress tells PEOPLE of her fiancé Jordan Lundberg, a strategic account manager who proposed in April 2017.
“I truly couldn’t wait for him to get there; it made the shower feel complete. He brought our host, Morgan, flowers and thank you gifts.”
The presence of her friends and family were Bryan’s favorite part of the shower.
“I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many strong women who inspire me daily,” she tells PEOPLE.
“I feel so lucky to have them by my side as Jordan and I take these major steps together towards our future!”
Florals played a large part of the day — in addition to a “gorgeous” ‘Ever After’ flower wall by OC Flower Walls for perfect photo ops, Bryan’s aunt Betty Crossland designed bouquets and arrangements for the shower.
Not one detail was overlooked, right down to the décor, Bryan tells PEOPLE. Right Party decked out the back yard with gorgeous furniture, while Gracious Bridal supplied custom monogrammed napkins and water cups for the bar service.
“We had delicious sit down dinner from Jay’s Catering and every person got up and shared who they were in my life and how our friendship started,” the Cheetah Girls star tells PEOPLE of one of the shower’s most moving moments.
“This was one of my favorite parts because of felt like a walk through my life with women who have filled my life with so much love and support.”
“Registering for our wedding was a hard process for me because it felt very strange to ask for gifts from people when all you truly want from them is their presence at the shower and on the big day,” Bryan admits.
“Our moms reminded us that people enjoy showering you with love during this special time and truly do love buying meaningful gifts! My ‘L’ monogramed Lenox china was my favorite find during the registering process!”
In addition to a “gorgeous” gold-topped layer cake, Haute Sweets upped the ante with delicious doughnuts that guests loved.
“I’m still soaking in the incredible feeling of love and support from the women at the shower,” Bryan says.
As the day wound down, Bryan was hard-pressed to choose a few favorites from the day — by the presents she chose turned out to be the most personal.
“We were showered with so much love, but a few amazing gifts that stood out in my head,” she tells PEOPLE.
“My mom got our Vera Wang champagne flutes and Waterford cake and knife set engraved with our monogram, date, and hashtag #OnceUponALundberg! And Jordan’s mom gave me my absolute favorite picture of Jordan when he was little in a custom frame.”
