The butterfly is a beautiful creature that many are incredibly fond of. Have you ever wanted a wedding filled with these gorgeous, delicate creatures? Now you can have that butterfly themed wedding plus much, much more. With wedding favors decked out in butterflies, as well as a few other tweaks, you could have the butterfly wedding of your dreams.
Let us paint a picture in our minds. We do not need a
typical white wedding dress, if you'd prefer not to wear one. Choose
maybe a dress of a pastel color, such as a light blue, periwinkle, or
pale pink. Instead of releasing doves as the bride comes down the aisle,
release elegant butterflies of all types. As the bride steps down to
the music of her choice, the butterflies are released moments later, and
a rush of color sweeps behind the bride as she walks down the aisle.
The altar and the aisle seats are draped in a soft fabric that
compliments the pastel color of the bride's dress. The bridesmaids can
also be dressed in pastel color dresses, with the groomsmen in matching
ties or shirts.
As the ceremony comes to an end, the celebration
begins. We enter into a room decorated with tables, chairs, and a stage
for music. On each table a white cloth is draped over. In the center of
each of these tables a small frame is placed, decorated with
butterflies, and the couple being celebrated, smiling in the picture.
Surrounding the frame are small butterfly tea lights, which creates an
inexpensive centerpiece perfect for low lighting. Small, pewter
butterfly card holders are placed around the table displaying the
guest's names proudly. A large cake is rolled out decorated with our
theme, butterflies in vibrant colors dance around the cake. Bottles of
champagne sit next to our beautiful cake, each bottle topped with a
butterfly bottle stopper. The guests are greeted by our theme in
abundance, but it only gets better.
Each guest can leave with the
perfect wedding day favor. Perhaps in the center of each table a few
little butterfly bookmark's can be placed. Joining the bookmarks can be
butterfly key chains, candles, and magnetic memo clips. The bookmarks
are oval and silver, topped with a silver butterfly. A simple silver
butterfly key chain is an ideal wedding favor as well. Candles are one
item that may be a little tougher because there are just so many to
choose from! Should we go with a small pastel one, with a butterfly
painted on it? Or perhaps a pewter butterfly that holds a small tea
light? If you can not decide which direction you would like to head with
candles, there is always a small silver butterfly that also acts as a
magnetic memo holder, perfect for any of your guest's fridge!
wouldn't want to overwhelm guests with too many butterflies, but little
wedding favors are perfect with pastel colors. And all of these favors
are within any bride's budget! So go wild, and release the butterflies!
