From her Zuhair Murad dress to her five-tier wedding cake, the photos from the wedding of Sofia Vergara to her handsome Groom, Joe Manganiello, are amazing.  Estimated to cost almost $4 million dollars, Vergara and Manganiello had a sequined floral backdrop to stand in front of while reciting their vows, the reception tables had these gorgeous red rosette tablecloths, complete with customized napkins and Vergara’s jewelry…WOW!

If you’d like to add similar touches to your wedding day, here are a few suggestions:

The Dress – Zuhair MuradSofia Vergara dress

Vergara’s two-piece dress had 11 lbs of sequins and 6lbs of pearls…can you imagine how heavy that baby would have been?!  Apparently it took over 1,657 hours to make her dress, complete with a hand-embroidered bodice…incredible.  Don’t have 1,657 hours to dedicate to your dress?  How about this gorgeous two-piece number, complete with gold sequins on the bodice?  At only $300 USD, I’m willing to bet that’s a fraction of the price of Vergara’s dress.

The festivities were a week-long affair, giving Vergara lots of opportunity to showcase her fashion sense, including a really pretty lace dress which she wore more like a bathing suit cover-up.  How about this lace overlay dress?  Long sleeves instead of no-sleeves but would definitely suit a warm-weather event and for only $100 USD.

The Reception Decor

rosette tableclothRomantic, intimate, sparkly and decadent…these are some of the words I’d use to describe the décor at Vergara and Manganiello’s wedding.  Their ceremony location was a floral explosion, accented by sequined drapes and long, dangling ropes of flowers, creating a really intimate space to recite their vows.Customized napkins

We have some really gorgeous décor items you could use to dress up your ceremony space too.  Have you seen this sequined drapery (for only $85 USD – four different colors available!)?  Or this gold champagne-sequined backdrop (gorgeously accented with lighting for $250 USD) Add the drapes to this floral backdrop (at $600 USD, could be a bit pricey but could also be the highlight of your décor) and you’ve got an eye-catching place to marry the love of your life!


rosette tablecloth with napkinRosette tablecloths come in so many colors – add texture, romance and flair to your reception tables like Vergara and Manganiello did.  You can create a very similar tablescape, complete with customized napkins on a rosette tablecloth ($60 USD), white pillar candles ($1 USD each!) and silver-embossed candleholders (only $3.50 USD each), and your tables can really pop with romance!Sequined backdrop two by two
