As a true symbol of Love, the White Dove chooses its mate for life, therefore they are a very fitting and final addition to any wedding. They create a magical atmosphere as they circle the skies before leaving on their new journey together.
Doves and pigeons are of the same family, and in a wedding dove release there are no doves involved at all. Even though the small dove is credited with creating striking wedding day ambiance, an actual dove is unfortunately a poor candidate for release.
Homing pigeons are trainable and more conducive to interaction with people. A wedding couple considering a release should investigate any dove release company to insure that only appropriate white homing pigeons are utilized. Other considerations to insure an effective release include:
Pigeons rely on the sun and can only be released during daylight hours. A minimum of two hours before dusk is required for the safety of the birds during their flight home. Sunset and evening weddings are not appropriate for a dove release. They need to have ample time to find shelter before night sets in.
A successful dove release is one that sincerely addresses the well being of the birds, the guests' view of the release ceremony, and the wedding couple's involvement. With careful planning everyone will enjoy a magical moment as the white doves reach for the sky, the hopes and the dreams of the wedding couple alive on their wings.
Minister: For centuries White Doves have been the symbol of new beginnings, friendship, Love, peace, prosperity, fidelity and goodwill.
Doves share a commitment and a love of being home together. It is said that if White Doves are seen on your wedding day, a happy home is assured and good luck will come to all who witness their release. Their participation in your wedding ceremony makes it very special.
Today as you both make a promise to be together, the release of two White Doves signifies a commitment as a couple everlasting, much like the dove that mates and remain faithful for life.
__________ and __________, we wish for you that your life together will be everlasting, rich and rewarding. May your marriage carry with it all of the wonderful qualities that the White Dove represents.
Their release will represent all of the blessings and best wishes from your family and friends accompanying you on your new journey together as wife and husband.
As a romantic gesture - in just a moment, __________ and __________ will release two White Doves as a symbol of their freedom and
unity - together forever.
(If more than two White Doves: ". . . followed by a flock of White Doves, representing the support, Love and best wishes of all who are gathered here today!")
Today may the doves continue to share the sacred promise of Love from above to those whose hearts are open to the miracle of love. May the sun from the Heavens dance upon your wings as the angels begin to sing and rejoice for your never-ending Love. And so it is!
You may now release the White Doves, giving your Love wings!
