A fundamental part comes from the happy couple, who give the starting input as a foundation for the entire project, with ideas that come from their lives and personal story. But the most important thing is to keep the feelers out and never to stop observing the world around us: exhibitions, trips, books, photographs, and meetings. Everything can provide inspiration: sometimes it can be just a color, a shade, or a dinner that brings new ideas.

The organizational and budget management aspect is often a priority, and it is for this reason that the bride and groom need external professionalism.
