Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello are getting ready to walk down the aisle soon, and in a new interview with ET, the Modern Family star reveals why the pair wants to exchange vows far away from L.A.!

“Destination!” Sofia confirmed when asked if she was going with a destination or local wedding. “I want all the people from Columbia and South America and from Europe to be able to make it to the wedding and Los Angeles is very far away from everything.”

Sofia shared the news at the Skinny Cow Speakeasy Event in Los Angeles on Thursday.

But the 42-year-old won’t be getting wild at a bachelorette party before she and Joe, 38, exchange vows.

“In Latin America we don’t do bachelorette parties,” she explained. “I'm not doing a bachelorette party.”

But she just might be giving her fiancée a nice gift. Sofia confirmed she was picking up an anniversary gift for her man at David Yurman earlier this week. The pair started dating last June – and he popped the question just six months later on Christmas.

“I don’t know if it was somebody that told me it or if I figured it out, but I think never to take 'no' personally,” Sofia answered when asked about the best piece of career advice she’s received.

“It's very important when you are trying to do something that is out of your comfort zone… for example with trying to be an actress or a singer or something -- there's going to be a lot of people saying 'no' to you -- not because you're not pretty enough or talented enough or good enough, it's just because you weren’t right for the role… and so 'no' shouldn't discourage you to keep going and keep waking up and trying.”

Sofia also opened up about her son, Manolo, gushed over her Modern Family co-stars and revealed what fans can expect to see in Magic Mike XXL. Check out our interview with Sofia in the video above and tune in to Entertainment Tonight this evening for even more! Check local listings for times.
