Crystal Harris shows off bridal shower photos, insists wedding will go on

Model CRYSTAL HARRIS appears to be dead set on exchanging vows with Playboy boss HUGH HEFNER on New Year's Eve (31Dec12) after calling off their wedding in 2011 just days before the big event.

The 26 year old will wed Hef, who is 60 years her senior, at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills on Monday - and to silence the doubters who still think the nuptials won't happen, Harris is sharing photos of her 19 December (12) bridal shower with fans online.

Her business partner, Ashley Matthau, threw the party at the pals' new lingerie store, Femme Fatale, and Harris tells Us Weekly magazine it was the perfect send-off: "We really love Disney. We are huge fans. We go to Disneyland together a lot. My favorite movie is The Little Mermaid, so she (Matthau) got me an Ariel-themed cake.

"We played fun games too. We did questionnaires about who knows the bride best - Ashley won, and my mom came in second!"

And, in lieu of gifts, the bride-to-be asked guests to bring Christmas ornaments to decorate the tree in the bedroom she shares with the Playboy boss.

She tells the publication, "It was really sweet. I opened all the ornaments - some were wedding themed, some were Disney."

Now, Harris is looking forward to the wedding: "We're keeping it really small this time. We're happy about it. It's going to be a quiet private wedding here at the Mansion with our close friends... I think, with everything that happened before, we want to keep it quiet and private. Last time it turned into a big ordeal and then it all fell apart.

"I needed to explore out there and take the time away. The time away really helped make me realize that where I'm meant to be is here with Hef. Hef cares for me so much, and I care for him so much. We love each other. I felt like I needed to be home and this is home for me... This time around is amazing. Our relationship is better than it ever has been before."
