The Modern Family star will wed her handsome beau at The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach on Sunday (November 22). Wedding festivities will kick off the day before the ceremony with Sofia, a self-confessed sweet tooth, hosting an evening of cocktails and desserts at the luxurious, oceanfront resort.
Billed as "Love is Sweet... let the celebrations begin," guests are invited to join the couple at 9 p.m. Saturday night.
Then the following evening, guests will put on gowns and tuxedos for the wedding itself, which will start at 6 p.m. with the marriage ceremony, followed by dinner and dancing. "It's a Latin party, we go until late," the bride previously told E! News. "There's a party and an after party."
In lieu of gifts, the couple has asked their 400 invitees to make donations to charities that hold a special place in their hearts. One charity they have selected is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which helps children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
