We all saw the photos and videos from Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello's wedding in November, and there's no doubt it was quite the party, but we didn't expect this...

The Modern Family actress' co-star Julie Bowen joined The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday and dished new details about the three-day extravaganza, including how Straight Outta Compton may have saved her life and why there were IV stations set up by the pool.

"If you've ever been to a Sofia event, it's three days. It's like a slow moving trolley," the blond explain to Ellen. "And you jump on, and you drink and you dance and then you jump off. You can't stay on for three days. It's like a party train. It's insanity."

She explained how she'd make sure she took a break from all the craziness by watching the film, "I would go back to my room and watch Straight Outta Compton, over and over. Three times."

LOL! However, if guests weren't careful about breaking up all the partying (like Bowen) Sofia and Joe made sure everyone was taken care of.

"They had a little ambulance truck with an IV station where you could go get IV hydration," Bowen revealed. "I thought somebody had had a heart attack because there was this first-aid truck set up outside of the pool area where all the bungalows are. But there were people sipping espresso getting IV re-hydration."

She added with a laugh, "Apparently there's nothing you can do in three days that can't be undone with some IV hydration!"

As for her love for Straight Outta Compton, Bowen says she hopes it will rub off on her three boys—Oliver McLanahan Phillips, John Phillips and Gustav Phillips—some day.

"I love the 90s. I make my kids break dance so that they can listen to 90s hip-hop," she revealed to Ellen, explaining how she even bought them padded beanies to help with their moves. "They're gonna learn to like it."
