I've been seriously low carb for q couple of weeks somewhere between 10-20 g a day I just had one gin and slim and I'm tipsy.

I have a wedding next Saturday will the food at the wedding be enough to prevent this happening , I'm taking that day off completely, or should I carb load the Friday too?

I've a high tolerance for alcohol and a couple of weeks low carb has reversed it !

I think you have to prime your liver with glycogen in order to not feel deathly the day after - so if you can't get away with only having a couple carb load on Friday.

Not a problem. If you are tipsy after 1 Gin and slim then just drink less by alternating each drink with just a slim. Why take your body out of ketosis for just one wedding? Stay low carb, stay in ketosis, spend less money getting tipsy, body burns the alcohol before going back to burning the fat, carbs don't ruin the week, and if you drink enough water you will feel ok. I had a lot of Gin and slims one night and felt fine next day, just tired and a bit dehydrated.
