How does it work?

Butterfly Wedding ReleasesThe butterfly box will arrive on the day or the day before your wedding. The only thing that you have to do is to keep the box in a cool place until you are ready to release the butterflies. Don’t worry about the butterflies in the mean time; while in the box they are sleeping, and they will only become active with daylight once the box is open.

There are two release options: either an individual release, where each butterfly is kept in a special envelope or box so they can be released individually; or a mass release with 20 or more butterflies released from one large presentation box.

Butterfly Wedding ReleasesWe will usually supply either Monarch or Swallowtail butterflies, depending on availability*. When the Monarchs are released, these butterflies tend to stay within the area as they all have a slow, gliding & flapping flight. They also tend to float in the air currents above you and they look absolutely amazing. These are the best butterflies to use for releases. They have also proved to be a great success in the U.S.A., and are the most popular of the butterflies to release over there.

Bride and Butterflies- photo © Grace VentersWe also offer other butterflies when in season, see above. (Please check availability, as many of them are seasonal.) Please note that, when smaller species are released, they tend to fly off very quickly, making it hard for people to see and appreciate them.

Monarchs and Swallowtails are attracted to bright-coloured clothes and flowers, and this behaviour should enable your guests to see them, photograph them and enjoy their beauty.

*Some butterflies are available most of the year, others are seasonal. If your butterfly of choice is not available, we will supply other species of large, colourful butterflies instead.
