This small municipality is located in the Brazilian state of Alagoas, and covers an area of 65km². The area is best known for its pristine beaches, and warm, emerald waters. Beautiful coral reefs can be found just off shore, and kayaks can be hired to paddle out and explore. Boat tours also take visitors further out to explore the marine life in the deeper parts of the ocean.
The areas small villages, that have stood for generations, are best explored by bicycle. The people are very friendly, and it is a great opportunity to visit local artisan stores and appreciate the art and craft on offer.
At first the engagement period is the most
exciting time, and it should be! (celebrate it), but pretty soon depending on
how soon you decide you want your wedding this beautiful period of time can
just become one big wedding conversation- with literally everybody (and
anybody). It’s really important to carve time out for yourself and for you and
your partner to have wedding free time.
Fight to keep your wedding your
Everyone thinks they’re a wedding planner
when you get engaged. There’s plenty of people who are trying to do a nice
thing and help you out with suggestions but its very easy to quickly get
overwhelmed. Especially when weddings can bring out the “I know everything”
mentality. Be select in who you allow to have an influence in your wedding and
make sure you don’t allow yourself to get swallowed in their ideas of what your
wedding should be rather than your ideas for your wedding.
Communication is key
The part that makes wedding planning the
most difficult is communication. Because depending on your partner’s and your
family dynamics there’s often a bunch of people who have very differing
opinions and expectations. Chronic
people pleases need to find a way to have hard conversations about their
expectations for their wedding and family member’s roles in the lead up- the
earlier the better, there’s nothing worse then ending up with a wedding that
you don’t feel is your own at all.
Research will make your budget
one’s a balance. Some people will blow their budgets out with a longer
time, because the idea they started with for their wedding was before they saw
all the amazing glamorous weddings out there. And to a degree a shorter
engagement period can help with that. But also research will save you a tonne
of money. Finding the best vendor for your price point and style will take
time. There’s no shame in going on some vendor stalking from some friends (if
they’re happy to share) or hunting down the corners of the internet so you can
find that great photographer no one has
ever found before. And sometimes this can take a tonne of time. if you time
poor perhaps event organisers are going to be your saving grace.
DIY - be ready for some pinterest fails
Lets be real, the internet is full of some
beautiful do it yourself wedding décor. And while that’s great there’s a level
of these that are really making these things professional. What says it may
only take 20 minutes may eventually take 3 hours, because well maybe you’re not
as much the arty type as you would like to believe. DIY can be time consuming and painful and can
sometimes completely fail, be prepared for your idea to go sideways a few
times, and make sure that you do a few practice ones. After practice ones assemble and army, make a
day of it and hang out with the girls to get it done. And dear lord absolutely
do NOT leave it last minute – there is absolutely nothing that will make you
more stressed then fiddling with craft and a hot glue gun while you cry at 11pm
one week before your wedding. Be prepared and do it beforehand!
