Eating red-hot foods like peppers before the wedding is a bad idea; spicy food can make you feel flushed, break you out in a sweat and give you heartburn, indigestion and bad breath. Curry is perhaps the worst offender -- a tasty ingredient found in many Indian-inspired dishes, curry is almost guaranteed to leave your pearly whites with a dingy, yellow tint.

And before you reach for a tall glass of milk to extinguish the fire in your mouth, think again; milk actually feeds oral bacteria, leaving you with breath that's anything but fresh. In the days before you tie the knot, nix spicy foods from your diet and save the heat for the honeymoon.
