Beat the Bloat, Blah and Discoloration: 10 Foods and Drinks to Avoid Pre-Wedding

Alcohol

Too much toasting before the wedding can leave you puffy, along with a sour stomach and pounding head, so steer clear of alcohol until the champagne toast at your reception. Most alcoholic beverages are high in calories and have the uncanny ability to increase your appetite, resulting in added pounds before you say, "I do." Avoid drinking alcohol in the two weeks leading up to the big day, but if you must, order a cocktail that's low calorie, like a gin and tonic, and resist partaking in a second round!
