Blanc by Saídos da Concha

Constança Cabral has launched her wedding line at her new shop, Blanc by Saídos da Concha . Her line of ring bearer pillows are handmade using fabrics like cotton and unbleached linen, which she says are designed for 'modern, romantic and urban young women who would like an alternative to all the frills and shiny fabrics.'

"If the bride is crafty, she can use it as a pincushion after she's married and enjoy her special day whenever she sews," Constança adds.

Alternative dresses

I adore these dresses from Makool on etsy. Somehow reminded me of a recent wedding in which the bride wore a short, white dress, thongs and a flower in her hair. The groom and groomsmen donned khaki linen pants, white shirts and kept it Hawaiian-style casual. It was a small, simple and intimate affair, attended only by family and close friends yet so, so lovely I thought..
