LeeAnne Locken will soon be married!

The 51-year-old Real Housewives of Dallas star, who is marrying longtime boyfriend Rich Emberlin, 56, on April 27 in Texas, celebrated her upcoming nuptials with a gorgeous bridal shower organized by costar Kameron Wescott.

Wescott hosted a garden bridal shower for the couple, complete with twinkling lights, massive gold balloons, chandelier candles and bouquets of white roses on the tables.

“Thank you to all who helped me throw such a fabulous wedding shower for LeeAnne Locken this afternoon,” Wescott shared on Instagram. “Plus my amazing mother in law who helped me!!”

Wescott shared a series of photos and videos from the evening, showing off the stunning table setting and decorations. The mother of two also shared a hilarious video of herself and Locken popping the balloons with kitchen knives at the end of the night.

Locken also shared a sweet photo of her and Emberlin from the shower.

“I can’t believe in ONE WEEK I will be Mrs. Richard Emberlin,” she wrote. “I’ve waited 51 years to marry my soulmate and by God’s grace, I only need wait 7 more days! Rich Emberlin you are the greatest love of my life! I am so grateful I get to grow old with you!”

The pair’s wedding day is expected to be filled with lots of glitz and extravagance — and the bridal shower is just one indication of that. They recently revealed that their wedding cake will be a 12-foot-tall, 72″-round champagne cake with buttercream frosting from baker Shane Morgan and his company, Posh Cakes.

“Everything is bigger in Texas, and this cake will be by far the largest wedding cake to ever be served in this state!” Locken told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement earlier this month.

“I think the sheer size not only demonstrates the love that Rich and I have for each other but also the love that is felt between us and our community,” she added. “I feel like I am having the most amazing Cinderella wedding ever!’

“A jumpsuit like this typically takes four months to make,” Azénabor said. “However, we put about eight people on this and made it in seven weeks.”
