The Wedding Checklist for Bridesmaids - 2 1/2 Week Countdown

I'm getting so excited for Monica Lane's wedding! It's a little over 2 1/2 weeks away. I'm a little in shock, as I'm sure she is...it feels like yesterday that we were planning and had months and months until the big day. I've seen lots of checklists for the bride, but I haven't seen many for bridesmaids. So, I'm making one! 
 
This list is for all the bridesmaids out there that need a little direction before the big day!

DRESS
If you're like me you tend to procrastinate getting things "fitted" I keep thinking that I will change sizes - haha! I'm feeling good, but there's always that little part of you that hopes you will be a size smaller. It's time, if you need it, TAKE YOUR DRESS TO BE FITTED, don't wait until the last minute.

HAIR
If you're planning on getting your haircut before the wedding, it's best to do it at least 2 weeks out, so you have a little time for it to adjust.

NAILS
Make sure you time your mani/pedi's so that you are on target with getting them done before the wedding. Don't get one a week before and spend the money when you know you are going to need another one.

SKIN
Drink lots of water and make sure you're taking care of your skin before the wedding. The make-up artist will be thankful.

EAT
Cleanses and eating well. I have been looking at doing a cleanse before the wedding and the one that I think I'm going to try is the Dr. Oz's Three Day Cleanse. I saw a review of it on a great blog I read, Schue Love. I'll let you all know how it goes. Wish me luck!
If I don't do a cleanse at least I'm planning on eating healthy, working out, and drinking lots of water (I need to be better at this) do you drink enough water? I'm always tell myself to drink more...but I'm bad.

SHOES & OTHER OUTFITS
There are always "other" outfits you will need for the wedding weekend. Make sure you don't forget the rehearsal dinner, brunch, and any other events that are happening. Shoes - it's important that you have the right shoes for all of your events, but don't forget flip flops as your feet my get sore from all the events. At my wedding my flip flops were so important after all of the standing, dancing, and running around.

BRIDESMAID DUTIES
It's important not to forget about your bridesmaid's duties during this time. Different brides ask different things of their bridesmaids, but right before the wedding is the most important time to be offering to help, talking through the details, and being a shoulder to lean on.
  Any other ideas for preparing for the big day?
