Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganeillo will tie the knot at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida Sunday, but the couple’s wedding invitation has been revealed by Hello. The magazine has obtained an exclusive picture of the card which confirms the details of the celebration, which will kick off the night before on Nov. 21.
The pair’s wedding invitations are “classy and white,” a source had revealed in October. The “Modern Family” star will walk down the aisle with her son Manolo, 23. For the couple’s big day, guests have been asked to wear gowns and tuxedos.
The lavish affair will start with a ceremony at 6 p.m. followed by dinner and dancing. “It’s a Latin party, we go until late. There’s a party and an after party,” the would-be-bride told E! News. Vergara and Manganeillo will say “I do” at the luxurious Italian, Renaissance-style resort with its sprawling private beach.
Vergara’s guests will be treated to a Saturday night cocktail reception with lots of desserts to tuck in to. Sofia and Joe have asked their guests to make donations to charities St Jude’s Children’s Hospital, which helps youngsters battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, figures among the charities.
Her wedding has been planned by celebrity wedding consultant Mindy Weiss. The 43-year-old is all set to wear a custom-made Zuhair Murid gown. The Lebanese designer is a close friend of the actress. The mother-of-one will also wear her signature fragrance Sofia on her wedding day.
The actress’ trusted make-up artist, Kayleen McAdams (younger sister of Rachel McAdams) will do her wedding make-up. A total of 10 make-up artists and hairdressers will tend to Sofia, her cousins and her friends on the big day. Sofia’s family and seven of her best childhood friends will fly in from her hometown of Barranquilla in Colombia.
Sofia’s wedding to the “Magic Mike XXL” actor will witness 400 guests attending the ceremonies. The former’s “Modern Family” co-stars will be in attendance along with Ellen DeGeneres. Joe’s close pal Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played matchmaker during the formative stage of their relationship, will also be there.
Joe had popped the question to his lady love in Hawaii in December 2014.
