Vanessa Minnillo celebrated her upcoming nuptials with a girls' weekend in Las Vegas.

Vanessa Minnillo is making the most of her last days as a single woman.

The bride-to-be, who is set to wed Nick Lachey, was the center of attention during a bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday.

"I'm about to get married," Minnillo told the crowd at The Palazzo's LAVO on Friday night.

"I'm about to get a ball and chain ? but not yet," she added, "and tonight's my bachelorette party!"

Minnillo, 30, wore a traditional bachelorette sash and crown while celebrating her upcoming wedding with eight of her friends. The event included plenty of champagne and an unexpected performance by a little person who impersonated Lachey and sang a 98 Degrees song.

The fun continued Saturday, when Minnillo and her gal pals lounged poolside at the Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan.

Planning for her big day has been "a breeze," Minnillo told People.

"Nick and I are so on the same page and it's so easy with every decision we've made," she said.

Lachey, 37, didn't give off quite the same impression last month, when he tweeted that "the one thing not affected by the recession is the wedding business!!"

"Damn, this is getting expensive," he added. "Good thing she's worth it."

The couple, together on and off since 2006, was toasted by friends and family members at a wedding shower in West Hollywood on May 29,� and Minnillo had a bridal shower in Beverly Hills on June 11.

All that's left, it seems, is the wedding itself.

"The worst part is the anticipation," she told

Minnillo echoed that on Twitter Saturday, when she expressed her eagerness to tie the knot.

"Done done and done... now let's get married!!!" she wrote. "All the pre-wedding festivities are so fun, now I can't wait to get hitched!"
