Imagine a Butterfly Release. The bride is holding the top of the release container, and the groom is holding the bottom. The bride then pulls the top of the release container away and suddenly the bride and groom are standing in a cloud of colorful butterflies. Some of the butterflies land on the bride and groom. Some fly away, and some land on other members of the celebration. It's an unforgettable moment and results in amazing memories and beautiful photos!
Before You Start
Temperature - To have a successful butterfly release, the temperature must be at least 60° F, and preferably 65°+ F. If the air is colder than that your butterflies will not be able to fly.Butterfly Tennis
Rain Rain Go Away - If it rains at your wedding, cancel your butterfly release unless it's a light rain. A light rain will cause them to land right away. A heavy rain could kill them. Just wait till the rain is over and release them then.
USDA regulations - Warning: release butterflies in the same state you collect them in. USDA regulations require a permit to release butterflies in a different state from the one they were collected in. This is a very important law that protects not only the butterflies but also farmers. For example if you collect a pretty white butterfly called the pieris rapae and release it near a cabbage farmer you could cause problems for him/her. They know pieris rapae as "that caterpillar that will try to eat my entire crop". The common name of that butterfly is the "Cabbage White". Be responsible and only release butterflies reasonably close to where they were collected and never across state lines.butterfly table tennis.Butterfly Garden
Expired Butterflies - Even if you do everything perfectly, you will still end up with some expired butterflies. This is because most butterflies have a short lifespan. Some species live as little as two days as an adult. Most butterfly species have an adult lifespan of roughly four weeks. Because you are not raising your butterflies from caterpillars like butterfly farmers you cannot know how old they are. If you happen to catch a 23 day old butterfly it probably will expire before you release them.
How Many Should I Collect? - We recommend at least 1 dozen butterflies. 2 or 3 dozen is better. By law you may not release more than 250 butterflies of one species at one event.Butterfly Tennis .Butterfly Garden
