Only a few days remain until Sofia Vergara and her fiancé Joe Manganiello tie the knot, and in the lead-up to the big day, HELLO! Online has obtained an exclusive picture of the wedding invitation. The photo confirms the details of the celebration, which will kick off the night before on Saturday 21 November.
Sofia, who is a self-confessed sweets and cakes addict, will host an evening of cocktails and desserts at The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.
The luxurious Italian, Renaissance-style resort – which has a private beach – is the same venue where Sofia and Joe will say "I do" the next day on Sunday 22 November.

Guests have been asked to wear gowns and tuxedos for the lavish affair, which will start with a ceremony at 6pm followed by dinner and dancing. "It's a Latin party, we go until late," the bride has previously told E! News. "There's a party and an after party."
Instead of gifts, the couple have asked their 400 invitees to make donations to charities that hold a special place in Sofia and Joe's hearts. St Jude's Children's Hospital, which helps youngsters battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases, is one of the chosen charities.
