A little something special for a very special day!!! #sofiavergara #MarkZunino #MarkZuninoBridal.”

Meanwhile, Vergara has chosen Beirut born designer Zuhair Murad to create a custom made bridal gown for her, according to an October report from US Weekly magazine. Murad has previously dressed Vergara in high profile Hollywood events such as the Golden Globes and Oscar awards.

Gould, who plays Luke Dunphy in “Modern Family” told US Weekly, “In the makeup trailer, she talks about what place settings she's going to have and what it’s going to look like. Sofia's very flamboyant and she likes things big. I’m not giving specifics, but there might be animal-print tablecloths!”
