Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Officially Kick Off Wedding Weekend

2015 Emmy Awards
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Are a Golden Couple

Wedding bells are in the air, or in this case, on the beach. A private beach, at that. With cocktails.

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s nuptials are taking place this weekend in Florida, and the celebration has already started. Last night (Nov. 19), the A-listers welcomed family and friends for a cocktail party on a private beach at The Breakers Palm Beach.

The five-star Italian Renaissance-style resort is where Joe and Sofia will say “I do” on Sunday night.

More of their celebrity friends are expected to arrive today and tomorrow, just in time for their Sunday vows. According to E! news, the affair is expected to be a lavish one: “Over 100 hotel rooms have been booked for the wedding party, we’re told, and 50 private homes on Palm Beach have been rented out for the celebration.”

ET reports that the guest list is expected to be 350 to 400 names long. Manganiello is an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan, so he invited some players from the team while Vergara’s Modern Family co-stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ariel Winter are already on their way.

Additionally, guests will have to check in their cell phones before entering any of their grand parties this weekend, meaning they’re keeping the nuptials super-private and under a tight hold.

As for whether or not their wedding will take place by the sea, ET expects it will be taking place inside as apparently there is a 90 percent chance of rain.

Sofia’s dress is being designed by Zuhair Murad, which ET speculates it could be from the designer’s 2015/2016 haute couture fashion show in Paris earlier this year. Her 23-year-old son Manolo will reportedly be walking her down the aisle.

Celebuzz will keep you updated on the wedding weekend as more details emerge!
