She ordered the IV drip weeks before her wedding in order to still be functional while having fun.
We can all agree that hangovers are the worst, especially if there's an important event lined up that day. Getting rid of all the symptoms can be challenging as it affects how your entire body functions. A bride had to face this challenge after her wedding reception. She is being hailed as a "genius" for curing her post-wedding hangover, according to Newsweek. Victoria Foster posted a TikTok video in which she can be seen getting an IV drip to cure her hangover. She told the outlet that she had ordered three units of the drip weeks before her wedding day. It cost her $299 for the IV treatment and an extra $150 for a certified nurse, plus a tip. A mixture of IV fluids, electrolytes, vitamins and pharmaceuticals was infused into the newlywed's body for 45 minutes while she was connected to the machine in order to cleanse and assist her in swiftly recovering from hangover symptoms.
Foster said, "I drank a lot more than I usually do! I'm the type of girl who has an Aperol spritz or espresso martini at dinner every once in a while so six cocktails and seven shots of tequila was a lot!" She added, "The reception ended at 11 pm but we went to a bar after and got back to our room at 2 am. I was so lit." The bride pre-ordered the "Hangover" IV treatment and hailed it as the "single greatest thing she has ever done" the following day, despite feeling terrible from her hangover. She added, "As she was inserting the needle, I thought I was going to throw up. But it worked almost instantly, within minutes I felt better."
She further explained, "I felt incredible after and ready for a three-mile walk to the beach with my family who was visiting from my hometown El Paso, Texas. I'm so glad I could spend the day with them rather than in bed." She added, "I even had a glass of wine with dinner!"
The video has over 4 million views and thousands of comments of people praising this innovative idea. Several people shared their own experiences of getting drunk at weddings. A person shared, "My wife and I blacked out. We don’t remember walking up to the room or getting out our dresses but we somehow managed." Another added, "Honestly genius especially if you have a flight or something to catch the next day."
Another woman shared her experience, "I had a five-day hangover after my wedding almost ten years ago and I still feel nauseous when I think of it. It’s worth it for your wedding- nothing else is worth that but to feel 100% for your honeymoon it’s worth every penny," yet another person shared. It isn't uncommon for American weddings to have lots of alcohol with open bars. 53% of 1,000 Americans surveyed in a recent poll by Alcohol.org said they would prefer alcohol-stocked weddings to dry ones. According to the report, 81% of women would consider their wedding anniversary an occasion to indulge in alcohol.
