In a little over one month, Catherine Giudici will walk down the aisle to meet the man of her dreams, Sean Lowe, in a live televised wedding on ABC.But before the Bachelor pair say "I do," they've been busy planning and celebrating.The 27-year-old bride-to-be happily took to Instagram over the weekend and revealed that her best friends and family threw her an unforgettable bridal shower."So blessed to call these lovely ladies my family!" wrote Catherine, who stands in the middle of a group of six women and looks adorable in a loose-fitting white mini-dress and black tights.
The fun soiree took place on Sunday, one week after the freelance graphic designer and a few of her girlfriends took Miami by storm for her bachelorette party.Her future hubby also celebrated his own bachelor party that same weekend, but it was much tamer in comparison to Catherine's celebration. He and his pals went up to Jackson Hole, Wyo., for a weekend of relaxing and skiing.On Saturday, the brunette beauty posted a sexy photo of herself on a bed with "MRS. LOWE" spelled out on the headboard."MRS. LOWE in 42 days #countdownlowedown," she wrote.
Catherine has been updating her fans on the wedding process since the pair announced their engagement on The Bachelor finale earlier this year.The reality star revealed on Twitter that she went for another dress fitting just yesterday.

Life & Style reported, Sean's father is set to officiate the pair's nuptials.“I can’t think of a more godly man to conduct the ceremony,” the 30-year-old Dallas native tells the mag.“My dad has had such a powerful and positive influence on my life, I thought it was only fitting to have him officiate our wedding.”While it's a very exciting time for Sean and Catherine, not everyone who knows the couple is exactly happy with them!Sean's former Dancing With the Stars partner, Peta Murgatroyd, tells us that she wasn't invited to their ceremony.She admits, "I was a bit disappointed."Peta feeling let down makes sense considering Sean told Life & Style just a few months ago that she'd likely score an invite."I think we are going to go with the waltz," he said about his and Catherine's first dance. "Peta has graciously volunteered to help us learn it."Sean and Catherine are set to wed live on ABC on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 8 p.m. ET.
