We're Having A Butterfly Themed Wedding - Release The Butterflies!

We're Having A Butterfly Themed Wedding - Release The Butterflies!



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!

We 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!

Adding a butterfly to the top of your wedding favors, use picks to accent your floral arrangements and centerpieces and of course have sugar craft butterflies made to adorn your wedding cake.

Butterfly picks are available from florist suppliers and craft stores and are available in a range of materials and colors. For a modern contemporary touch, marabou feather butterflies are a popular choice. For something less exuberant feather, fabric or paper butterflies are a popular choice.

Through your wedding planning you can incorporate butterflies into many aspects of your wedding day. For instance:

1) PLANNING
Now you have date you need to plan in advance of the wedding date giving guests as much time as possible. Invites should be sent out 3 months in advance of the date, if the wedding is in this country. Longer if abroad so that holiday times can be booked out if necessary. Three months will give you enough time to find out who is coming and who is not. If you place a "RSVP return date by" this is good enough to prompt guests, as opposed to them sitting on the invites and returning them when they want to. You need to know well in advance of the final numbers for catering etc.

Thinking About Butterfly Wedding Themes

One of the most colorful and versatile choices for a wedding theme is the use of butterflies. Butterfly wedding themes are a unique selection with a variety of ways to apply such an incredible component of nature throughout your wedding celebration and reception. You can start your butterfly theme with imprints on your invitations and carry it through from your bouquet to your thank you notes. With careful planning, your theme will be as elegant or fantasy driven as you choose.

Accents and Decorating with Butterflies
Butterflies can be used in a very traditional sense or in an over the top way. Butterflies are typically fairly easy to find in craft and fabric stores but it is important to maintain a level of consistency with your decoration. Are they traditional butterflies in colors and designs you would find in nature? Or are they whimsical ones in colors that will make great accents to your wedding? Regardless of your selection, the key to your theme is to use it in unexpected ways your guests will remember.

You can consider using butterflies in bouquets and flower arrangements, much like you may see them in nature. Florists are likely to have some sort of decorative butterfly accent however, you can achieve a more customized accent piece by creating your own with craft supplies. These butterfly stems can even be given away after your reception to special guests or kept as your own keepsakes.

Using butterflies imprinted on engagement announcements, save the date cards, invitations, programs and thank you notes will set the tone for your butterfly theme for guests. Taking your theme a step farther and selecting butterfly shaped floating candles for centerpieces, colorful butterfly shaped chocolates or candies for table favors and even butterflies created out of sugar made to look as if they are flying from your wedding cake would be great options.

Creative uses for Butterflies
By using the internet or visiting a local pet store you can have a live release of butterflies at your wedding service or at your reception. An outdoor event would facilitate this best, but certainly it is a great option if you have the resources to support a successful butterfly launch. The local weather, actual site location and time of year will certainly impact the ability to have a butterfly release so be sure to consult with a professional if you have your heart set on having this feature at your wedding.

Another special way to incorporate butterflies is by using them as hair accents for bridesmaids as well as the bride and flower girl. Many hair accents in butterfly shapes are available at retail providers or hair salons. Customized pieces can also be an option, crafted by local bead artists or even created with supplies from craft retailers.

When choosing to use a butterfly wedding theme, it is important to remain consistent with the type of butterflies you are using. If you would like your butterfly theme to be memorable, use your theme where guests will least expect it.
