“If you’ve ever been to a Sofia event, it’s three days,” Bowen, 45, said of Vergara’s Nov. 22 nuptials in Palm Beach, Florida.
“It’s like a slow-moving trolley: You jump on, you drink and you dance and then you jump off. You can’t stay on the trolley for three days,” Bowen explained. “It’s a party train. It’s insanity. And it’s really fun.”
When host Ellen DeGeneres asked about the rumors of an IV truck, Bowen confirmed that indeed, there was a station set up for people as a pick-me-up from all the boozing.
“It was crazy. You had to hydrate,” the actress said. “They had a little ambulance truck, an IV station where you could go get IV hydration.”
“Like, literally a needle goes into your arm and they give you hydration? That’s how much people were drinking?” asked an incredulous-sounding DeGeneres.
“Yes, I thought somebody had had a heart attack or there was an event, ’cause there was this first aid truck set up outside of the pool area where all the bungalows are. And there are people, sipping espresso, getting IV rehydration,” Bowen said. “There is nothing, apparently, nothing you can do in three days that can’t be undone by some IV rehydration.”
Vergara, 43, recently confirmed her Modern Family costars were all “tipsy” during her own appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December – and that their afterparty went until “6 in the morning.”
“We had a great time,” Vergara told DeGeneres. “A lot of food, a lot of flowers. A lot of like, nice people.”
The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs weekdays (check local listings), and Modern Family airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on ABC.
