Proper Conditions for a Wedding Butterfly Release:
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 butterflies. If you don’t you could have a butterfly release where only a few butterflies fly out and the rest don’t make it.
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 with the help of Clearwater Butterfly.
