The bride-to-be was joined by his former 98 Degrees Drew Lachey and Jeff Timmons (and even a Vanessa Minnillo lookalike) as he popped a few bottles all in the name of his upcoming nuptials.
Meanwhile, Nick is comparing this trip down the aisle to his previous wedding toJessica Simpson.
“There’s nothing really that I would say, ‘Oh, never again.’ This is a fresh thing; it’s a new thing. It doesn’t rival or compare to anything I’ve done in the past, or will do in the future,” Nick told reporters of not associating his upcoming marriage to his first on Friday night, “It’s its own thing and I wanted to keep it that way.”
After exchanging vows on camera, Nick understands why some would see similarities to his upcoming I do’s, also slated to be filmed for television, but still wants everything to be unique.
“All the comparisons, I understand why they’re there, for obvious reasons, but a wedding is a very, very, very intimate and special thing, and I wanted it to be what she wanted it to be, and I’ve tried to work hard to make it that,” Nick said to reporters at Tao Nightclub while out with his buddies.
And while this is his second time down the aisle, Nick says this time it’s all about Vanessa.
“I’m careful not to say , ‘We’re not going to do this again,’ because that’s a one-sided statement. I’m divorced, but it’s important to me that this is [Vanessa’s] day, and it remains important to me that this is her day,” the pop crooner gushed.
As for what he has planned for the big day, set to be filmed for a “one-off special,” on TLC?
“It’s not going to be extravagant in the sense that, we’re talking about royal wedding, William and Kate extravagance. We wanted to create a life experience for ourselves, and for our friends and family,” Nick explained to reporters, “It’s going to be an intimate thing; it’s not going to be a big, blown-out, 400-pers
on ceremony in Central Park or anything like that. It’s for us, it’s for the people in our lives who are close to us and mean a lot to us. That’s the way we wanted it, and I’m happy we’re able to do it that way.”
