From the flower girl basket to the garter set, you can include beautiful butterflies in every aspect of your wedding day for a fantasy come to life. Add elegance to your special day by using silver butterflies with tiny crystals on all your wedding accessories.
The Meaning of Butterflies
Butterflies stand for love and romance in many areas of the world. For this reason, couples all over the globe choose butterfly wedding themes. In China, butterflies represent long life or a young man in love. Many Japanese families feature butterflies in their family crest design because they represent young maidens and marital happiness. Greek mythology links butterflies to the souls of humans.
This spiritual belief is shared by one of the Russian dialects. An old Irish saying refers to butterflies being souls. In a small town in Mexico, people view Monarch butterfly migration as the souls of the deceased returning and have a holiday to celebrate it. Butterflies also represent the wonder of metamorphosis and everlasting wisdom.
Some couples release birds or doves at their wedding. Others decide to release butterflies after they exchange their vows. Many couples feel their butterfly wedding themes are not complete without live butterflies. If you intend to release butterflies, it must be done during the sunlight, as they do not fly in the dark. It should be at least 55 degrees and sunny to ensure your butterflies capture the spirit of the day. For this reason, couples often combine a garden wedding with butterfly themes.
One of the focal points during a butterfly themed wedding with garden influences is the flower girl. The fabulous flower girl holds flowers for the bride, adding an adorable touch to the wedding ceremony. Everyone will be watching the flower girl and a flower girl basket with crystallized butterflies adds to the theme of the day. Whether your wedding is blue, green, pink or lavender, you can combine fancy butterflies with your favorite color for a fun, eye-catching flower girl basket.
Whether a ring bearer or the best man holds the rings, they are an essential part of the wedding ceremony. A square ring pillow featuring your butterfly theme is a lasting keepsake of the moment you exchanged rings and said, “I do”. Celebrate your eternal love by using a ring pillow with a fancy butterfly design. When you watch the videos of your wedding, a butterfly ring pillow make your rings stand out before you even put them on one another’s fingers.
No wedding is complete without guest books. All the guests have an opportunity to sign the book and make a spontaneous, personalized statement to the bride and groom. After the wedding, the bride and groom can read the guest book several times to laugh over the sentiments everyone shared. A guest book is also a key element to successfully writing all your thank-you notes for the wedding gifts. Add to the elegance of your butterfly wedding themes by using a satin wrapped pen set and traditional guest book to capture your guests’ statements.
Whom Will Get Married Next?
Several traditional ceremonies are included in almost every wedding. Everyone looks forward to the introduction of the bride and groom, the cake cutting ceremony and the throwing the garter and flowers. During the garter throw, all the single men gather to catch the bride’s garter. Seductive or funny music is played and the groom slides the garter down the bride’s leg then throws it out to all the single men.
The single man who catches the garter is believed to be the next man to get married. Using a garter set with sparkling butterflies captures the spirit of your special day. The photos of the bride wearing a butterfly garter are a perfect touch to the butterfly wedding themes of the day.
Butterfly wedding themes express the beauty of eternal love and commitment. Adding crystal butterflies to all your wedding accessories reflects the wisdom of your decision to share your lives together forever.
