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

Carbonated Beverages

The tiny bubbles in sparkling water, soda and champagne will fill your stomach with fizz and gas, and a stubborn case of the hiccups is not something you want to fight on your way to the altar! Not only can carbonated beverages make you feel bloated and uncomfortable, but the citric and phosphoric acid found in sodas can damage the enamel on your teeth, too. Eliminate all carbonated beverages as much as you can during your engagement, especially one to two weeks before the wedding. Instead, drink plenty of water to stay healthy and hydrated.
