The Bravo reality star, who famously feuded with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice during the show's third and fourth season, looked just as stylish for the big day. Wearing a cream-colored dress paired with camel-colored heels, Melissa posed happily with husband Joe and their three kids together — Antonia and sons, Gino and Joey.
After the church service, fellow housewives Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, Joe's cousin Kathy Wakile, and other party guests were on hand to celebrate at the Manzo family's Brownstone catering hall.
The party -- complete with a DJ, dancing and a photo booth for guests to take pictures in -- was a fun-filled day for Antonia.
Noticeably absent from the communion celebration was the Giudice family, but Melissa told Us Weekly two days before the bash that there's a drama-free explanation.
"Gabriella [one of Teresa's four daughters) is making hers [communion] at the same time, same church!" she said. "We're both having parties at the same time, so unfortunately, we're not going to each other's parties."
She continued, "Nobody wants to re-dress their kid another day, and go through the party a week later. Nobody really wants to do that. It just happened to land this way."
Melissa explained that her in-laws, (Teresa's parents) had plans to make it to both girls' parties, so neither Antonia or Gabriella would miss out.
