It’s official! After a whole weekend of wedding festivities Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have tied the knot. Every inch of the glamourous couple’s nuptials were picture perfect but Sofia’s bridal closet is what really caught our eye. The ‘Modern Family’ bombshell takes the crown for most epic wedding wardrobe ever, nailing everything from pool party perfection to rehearsal dinner chic.
The couple, who have been engaged since December last year, married in a stunning ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida at The Breaker Resort. Sofia kept her fans in the loop with live Instagram updates throughout the celebrations, leaving us feeling like we’d landed an invite ourselves – what a doll!
The whole thing was as glam as expected, coming to a climax on Sunday eve with a lavish ceremony for 400 guests followed by a reception party in the hotel’s Venetian ballroom. But all we were interested in was Sofia’s dress – obvs! And we were by no means disappointed. The dress was a gorgeous custom made Zuhair Murad couture gown, featuring an embellished bodice, with a big belted train attached, which we’re guessing she later removed to reveal a slimmer fitted skirt, to dance the night away a little more easily. The bride accessorized her beautiful gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewellery while being escorted down the aisle by her 23-year-old son Manolo – awww, super cute.
The 400 hundred strong guest list was rumoured to include celebs such as Channing Tatum, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Reese Witherspoon as well as Sofia’s Modern Family co-stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ed O’Neill, Sarah Hyland, Ty Burell and Julie Bowen.
But it wasn’t just about the one dress for Sofia, she donned not one but three fabulous frocks throughout the celebrations including a stunning cocktail dress for an intimate rehearsal dinner with her nearest and dearest on Saturday evening. The rehearsal dinner was almost as glam as the wedding itself, held in the courtyard of The Brazillian Court hotel. Sofia was every inch the blushing bride, in her cocktail frock, yet another beautiful Zurhair Murad design. The intricately embroidered dress with ruffle skirt detail showed off Sofia’s fabulous figure.

The rehearsal dinner was followed by more festivities, in the form of a pre-wedding party where Sofia was serenaded by husband to be Joe with a rendition of Guns N’ Roses’, “Sweet Child Of Mine”. It was yet another outfit change for the gorgeous bride to be, who wore a strapless fitted dress by Mark Zunino. With a sweetheart neckline and knee length sweeping bottom. The beaded beauty took three weeks to complete and used a whopping 62 yards of fabric. The skirt alone had 14 layers of silk organza and the lace bodice was hand beaded – fancy eh!
Sofia even treated us to a lesson in wedding cover-ups, sporting a stunning sheer beach dress for a pre-wedding day relaxing with the fam.
One thing’s for sure Sofia has given us plenty of wedding wardrobe inspo – now, if we could just steal her handsome new hubby, too, that would be just fab.
