Sofía Vergara: I'm no wedding virgin

Sofía Vergara feels too old to try to look like a virgin on her wedding day.

The Modern Family actress got engaged to Magic Mike hunk Joe Manganiello in December, and they are currently deep in wedding planning.

Sofía’s previously admitted she verges on being a “bridezilla”, and she’s now revealed extremely set ideas about the style she’ll rock on her big day.

“Personally, I know that I don’t like the natural look that some brides do. I’m 43, I don’t really need to look like a virgin getting married,” she told People. “I want to look sexy. I want to look great. I want to look good and [wear] something that I know is going to look good in pictures.”

That means piling on the make-up, even though the actress realises that is not traditional. Many women try a subtler look for their special day, but Sofía will be sporting a bold lipstick at the very least – something Joe loves.

“I already got married before. I don’t think I’m going to do a veil,” she explained.

The star wed her high school boyfriend Joe Gonzalez when she was 18 and they have a son together, but split in 1993.

She can’t wait to debut her exciting wedding day look, hinting that other brides would do well to take a leaf out of her book as so many of them play it too safe and boring.

Earlier this week (beg21Sep15), Sofía appeared on TV show Good Morning America where she also discussed plans for her nuptials. She praised Joe for being so helpful with the organisation, but admitted she has become a little obsessed with the small things.

“I am very detail-oriented so I am kind of like a nightmare. I have a very good memory. If you show me swatches of things, I can in two months exactly remember, 'What happened with the one with the little border that had the little print?' I'm like, really bad,” she laughed.
