Butterflies are a timeless symbol of promise and transformation, and butterfly wedding themes are a popular tradition. Butterfly wedding accessories help to spread the joy of the butterfly throughout a day filled with promise and bliss.
If you are having an outdoor affair, consider visiting a butterfly enclosure at a local botanical garden. This would be a dramatic and incredible experience for guests as they entered the butterfly conservatory and actually interacted with these mystical creatures.
However, if you are looking for indoor additions for your wedding, consider incorporating the following butterfly themed accessories into your day:
- Butterfly cake toppers
- Butterfly ring bearer pillows
- Butterfly flower girl basket
- Butterfly guest book and pen set
- Butterfly adorned garter
- Butterfly cake server set
- Butterfly dishes
- Butterfly toasting glasses and champagne flutes
- Butterfly unity tapers
- Butterfly headpieces
- Butterfly jewelry
- Butterfly tiaras with veil attachments
These butterfly accessories are easy to locate online and there are often several varieties available for the listed items.
A butterfly-decorated arbor, placed as the official entryway into your wedding, provides intrigue and color. Arbors are perfect at both indoor and outdoor weddings, as they create a symbolic passageway for bride, groom and guests. There are so many styles and sizes of decorative butterflies available at craft stores that the biggest challenge will be narrowing down your choices. Often presented with filmy and glittery materials, these decorative creatures seem to flow right into the magic of a wedding. Consider using butterflies of different sizes and materials for a more whimsical effect. If, however, you want your decorations to look authentic, you can use actual butterfly replicas. Your guests will have to look twice to realize that they are imposters!
Consider using butterfly appliqu?s to adorn bridesmaid dresses, curtains, and even tablecloths. Use butterfly confetti to lightly dust tabletops, floral arrangements, and even hair! Butterfly picks can be placed directly into plants and floral arrangements, or used for hors d'oeuvres.
You may want to consider the ever-popular butterfly release for the perfect ending to your butterfly wedding ceremony. This has become a controversial issue, however, so make sure you are aware of the facts. Since butterflies are migratory and often imported from faraway areas, they do not know where to go once they are released. This results in a lot of confused butterflies that often don?t survive the winter. If you can use local butterflies, you will keep them safe while still creating a dramatic and inspiring release.
