She went big

Sofia Vergara’s Sunday night wedding to Joe Manganiello was a spectacle. There were zillions of flowers! A cake table! Pitbull performed! Her skirt detached from her gown! There were matching T-shirts, for Pete’s sake! So a wedding on that scale wasn’t going to have just one white dress. All in all, Vergara sported four styles over the course of her wedding weekend (five, if you count the wedding dress post-skirt detachment).

Let’s start with that jaw-dropping Zuhair Murad Couture dress (if you haven’t seen the sketch, you can’t miss it), which consisted of a hand-embroidered bodice, contained 11 pounds of sequins and 6 pounds of pearls, and required 32 people to around the clock to complete the design, which took a total of 1,657 hours. Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings (55 carats of them), diamond hair clip and bracelet completed the look.

Once the enormous detachable skirt was removed, she teamed the sheath dress with more Lorraine Schwartz jewels: a pearl and diamond necklace (you can see a peek of it in the second photo), plus a diamond lace cuff and diamond leaf earrings.

For the rehearsal dinner party, Vergara wore a custom Mark Zunino dress in shell-pink with layers of white tulle overlay (see the whole look here). The sweetheart neckline has hand-embroidered crystal leaf appliqués, which were echoed in her Lorraine Schwartz diamond branch earrings.

For the rehearsal dinner itself, Vergara selected a more understated style — this one a cocktail dress by Zuhair Murad with a sheer embroidered bodice and faux-wrap skirt. Lorraine Schwartz diamond knot earrings topped off the look.

And of course, the weekend’s poolside festivities came complete with double the bridal white: a skimpy bikini and a plunging crocheted maxi dress. Members of her family got in on the action with #JOFIA-emblazoned tees.
