Sofia Vergara is planning an autumn wedding.

The 42-year-old actress - who got engaged to Joe Manganiello last month after six months of dating - is hoping to tie the knot with her actor beau after the summer when they can find the time in their busy schedules.

She said: ''We're trying to figure it out because... he's shooting and promoting 'Magic Mike' this summer and I'm promoting my movie with Reese Witherspoon ['Hot Pursuit'] and so we're kinda busy, but we're trying to do it maybe [in the] fall, summer is going to be too crazy.''

Although they are yet to decide on a date, the brunette beauty has already started planning her big day and confessed the guest list is already bigger than she first expected.

She said: ''It's big. We started, like, 'It's only 20.' Yeah right! It's like now there's like pages and pages.''

The 'Modern Family' actress - who has a 22-year-old son Manolo from her first marriage - proudly displayed her diamond engagement ring on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards last night (25.01.15).

Sofia admitted she was pleased to receive the ''bling-bling'' from her husband-to-be, although she insists she would have been equally happy to accept his proposal without the jewellery.

She told 'Access Hollywood': ''It's all about the bling-bling, so he knew what I needed. I opened it up and I checked it to see...

''He's so handsome that it would have been okay, you know? I would have said, 'OK, yeah.' ''
