Butterfly Releases For Weddings And Special Events In California

February 9th, 2012 by Craig Mullins

When we think of traditional wedding ceremonies, the image of a happy couple leaving for their honeymoon while guests shower them with rice or bird seed, often comes to mind.

However, in today’s world wildlife conservation, many venues have established rules banning the throwing of rice and/or bird seed. So how do you get around this predicament and still be able to share such a beautiful tradition with your wedding guests?

How about a butterfly release?

Many cultures and belief structures associate the butterfly with the soul and inner faith. The butterfly has also come to symbolize lightness, transition, resurrection, celebration, and time.

In Greek myth, Psyche (which literally translates to mean “soul”) is represented in the form of a butterfly. Befittingly, Psyche is forever linked with love as she and Eros (the Greek god of love, also known in Roman myth as Cupid) shared an endlessly passionate bond together – both hopelessly in love with the other.

Knowing all that, a butterfly release sounds far more appropriate for a wedding than rice!

Other occasions fit for a butterfly release include:

– Birthday Parties
– Grand openings
– Bar Mitzvahs
– Bat Mitzvahs
– A Baby’s Birth
– Memorials
– Graduations
– Anniversaries

Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding on a butterfly release:

– Release should be 1 hour before sundown
– The temperature should be above 60 degrees F; preferably warmer. They won’t fly if it’s colder.
– It should not be raining
– Place your butterfly order at least 2 months ahead of time. May & June are the busiest months.
