CAUTION - When planning a butterfly release, with the exception of a few rules, you are limited only by your imagination. Butterflies should only be released outside during daylight hours on a sunny or overcast (not rainy) day with a temperature above 65 to 70 degrees. Please follow the guidelines of the people who offer the butterflys. If you don't you could have a butterfly release where only a few butterflys fly out and the rest didn't make it (they die).
The butterflies should be set free no later than two hours before sunset. This allows the butterflies time to eat and find a hiding place for the night.
Releases should be held in areas protected from the wind or the butterflies will quickly disappear. A warm, sunny flower filled area or garden is best.
No matter how you choose to release your butterflies, a butterfly release is a beautiful, unusual, and exciting way to celebrate the beginning of your new life together.
Nature has given us many beautiful wonders. None are more spectacular and memorable than that of the butterfly in flight. Experience the extraordinary. Release a bouquet of butterflies at your celebration of Love.
The Butterfly Release Ceremony
Minister: Today we Celebrate Love in a very special way with the release of butterflies to signify a new beginning for ________ and ________.
According to an American Indian Legend. . .
If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.
Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly cannot reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.
In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish.
So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom, the wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.
The butterfly symbolizes new beginnings, freedom and happiness. For just a moment, think silently of what you would wish for ________ and ________.
We have gathered together to grant this couple all our best wishes and are about to set these butterflies free in trust that all these wishes will be granted.
The butterflies will now be released to carry forth the good news of your promise of love and commitment for each other.
NOTE: This ceremony can be edited as needed.
