Sofia Vergara looked amazing on her wedding day

Speaking to Martha Stewart Weddings about her bridal look, the star said, “Your wedding is not the time to try new things – you will have these pictures forever. My body looks better when I have a tight fitting dress with more support. Me am 43 so I can’t really look for anything too crazy. I have to go with what looks good on me. “

The princess dress went well with the rest of the day, which was like a real fairy tale. Her aisle was a wonderland of blooms and white flowers lining the path and hanging overhead, and her wedding breakfast area was adorned with huge pink roses.

On the 400-strong guest list were celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Although her dazzling gown took thousands of painstaking hours to make, the bride only wore it for a few and put on a short cocktail dress to dance the night away.

The star confessed to Ellen DeGeneres that the festivities lasted late into the night and the revelers finished by 6am! “We felt like having a party and then we had an after-party,” she laughed.
