While it's unnecessary -- and unhealthy -- to obsess over every morsel of food you consume in the weeks leading up to your wedding, no one wants to be a bloated bride! It's important to know which foods and drinks could make or break the way you look and feel on the big day, and that includes the coveted mashed potato martini bar at the reception.
