Releasing butterflies is a popular new tradition that leaves a visual and lasting memory for all! It is a great way to include your family and friends.

The butterfly symbolises new beginnings, good fortune and joy so is perfect to release a few butterflies at your wedding ceremony that will be remembered by all.

An Ancient Custom:

Releasing butterflies is also steeped in ancient custom and goes back to the American Indians….

The Indians believed if you wanted to a wish to come try you would first have to capture a butterfly and whisper a wish to it.

As the butterfly cannot make a sound, except to the great spirit, once the butterfly is released, your wishes would be granted by the great spirit.

They believe the best butterfly that can be released at a wedding is the Monarch Butterfly and the butterflies they supply can be seen in all the photos accompanying this article.
