Here's a couple things that is already done and some that we still need to do! When I look at this list I feel like I'm way more 'almost done' than it looks! There's so many little things at the end which is the reason I'm doing things so early like the bridal shower favors which I just finished this weekend even though it's not until June. I like to get things out of the way so I'm not stressing as we get closer.
