We're still over a year away from Lauren Manzo's big wedding to Vito Scalia, but that's not a lot of time in the bridal world. Her mother, Caroline Manzo, is officially moving forward on the first of many formalities — the engagement party!

The former Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to her own website to share her excitement.

"Wheels in motion for Lauren and Vito’s engagement party, oh brother… #HAPPY," Caroline wrote, next to a photo of herself researching the mechanics of making address lists on your computer.

Even though Caroline initially makes it seem like the party-planning process is going to be a huge bothersome ordeal, her all-capped hashtag is a clear indication that she couldn't be more thrilled for her daughter and her future son-in-law. Plus, we're pretty sure she's secretly psyched to plan all the details of Lauren's amazing day.

As of right now, the plan is for Lauren and Vito to tie the knot sometime in the summer of 2015, likely in July. Naturally, the reception will take place at The Brownstone, the Manzo's gorgeous event space in Hoboken.

We can't wait to see all of the little details coming together, from the theme colors, to the menu, to the flowers, to the dress! Hopefully, we'll get an inside look at the preparations when Manzo'd With Children goes live on Bravo. At least, we're hoping that they are getting some good footage of all the hoopla. Who doesn't love a wedding?
