Champagne, a selfie ban and THAT dress: Sofia Vergara ties the knot

Congrats to the newlyweds!

Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello tied the knot yesterday in Palm Beach, Florida, and – in typical Sofia style – the celebrations were stunning from start to finish.

Unlike other stars who might have held off on sharing photos of their big day, the couple took to Instagram to document every part of their weekend – from Saturday's rehearsal dinner to the dancefloor madness on Sunday night.

Dressed in a corseted strapless Zuhair Murad sheath dress with a detachable full skirt, Sofia looked every bit the picture-perfect bride.

It took 32 people, 350 crystals, 11 lbs of sequins, nearly seven lbs of pearls and 1,637 hours to create the dress, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The gown was one of a few looks the bride showed off over the weekend – on Friday she wore a white full-length maxi dress, for the rehearsal dinner she wore a white bodycon number with mesh detailing on the neckline, while after Sunday's ceremony she removed the bottom half of her dress ot reveal a short tulle skirt underneath.

"Your wedding is not the time to try new things – you're going to have these pictures forever," Sofia admitted in the run-up to her special day. 

"My body looks better when I have fitted dresses with more support. I’m 43, so I can’t really be looking for something too crazy. I have to go with what looks good on me."

The couple's wedding fun kicked off on Saturday when the first of 400 family and friends began arriving in Palm Beach for a rehearsal dinner, with Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sarah Hyland, Eric Stonestreet, Ed O'Neill, Ty Burell and Julie Bowen  among the Modern Family cast members in attendance.

Guests were surprised with bouquets of white flowers and chilled champagne in their bedrooms at The Breakers Hotel.

The venue's Venetian Ballroom was decked out with crystal chandeliers, yellow linens and mounds of roses and fuschia flowers covering the ceiling and tables. While there were photos galore throughout the reception, the couple chose to make certain parts of the wedding "selfie-free," by banning phones during the ceremony itself.

Included on the guest list – along with Sofia's many extended family members – were Channing Tatum, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Reese Witherspoon. Pitbull also showed up for a surprise performance during the couple's reception.

What a beautiful weekend!
