By now, weddings are just as familiar to Sofia Vergara as awards seasons and red carpet appearances. In June 2015, the Modern Family star served as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding ahead of her own lavish Palm Beach nuptials to Joe Manganiello six months later. Just this past year, the actress supported her handsome husband when it was his turn to be a groomsman, and this weekend, she again polished off her guest-iquette at a friend’s wedding. Below are five reasons why Vergara is actually the ideal guest.

She Uses the Couple’s Hashtag

The social media-savvy star made sure to tag all of her wedding-related images with her friend’s custom hashtag, #MeetTheMerlins. Vergara first took to her Instagram on the day of the wedding to share a photo with co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband, Justin Mikita, to introduce her concept for the night. “#MeetTheMerlins wedding night!” she shared.

She Takes Advantage of the Photo Booth

Vergara is certainly accustomed to step and repeats, but this is one that she didn’t want to pose in front of solo. The star pulled aside one of the brides to bring her into the photo booth. “Luv u Leslie!” she expressed. “What a fun night! #meetthemerlins #weddingnight🍾🍾.” While taking photos, she also made sure to put on a pair of giant glasses that are now a staple booth prop, and tagged her fellow booth-mates.

Luv u Leslie! What a fun night! #meetthemerlins #weddingnight🍾🍾

Those Lights on the Dance Floor? She Notices Them

There are so many little details that go into creating a fun-filled reception, and Vergara took the extra step into noticing one of the couple’s sweet ideas. The actress posted a video of herself standing directly in the sea of lights with her partner-in-crime that evening, Franz Serrano Evers.

She Mingles With Other Guests

Although Manganiello was unable to join Vergara at this particular wedding, the outgoing star made sure to rub elbows with other wedding attendees.

She Celebrates the Couple’s Love

The night ultimately wasn’t about Vergara, and she knew that. The Colombian beauty took to Instagram and posted images of the couple holding their bouquets at the altar. She also thanked the brides for a wonderful evening.
