Picture it. Your wedding day. Standing at the altar in front of your adoring friends and family. With eyes locked, you both say the words "I do." Suddenly, you are surrounded by dozens of fluttering butterflies. They touch down softly on the bouquet, dance around your guests, and soundlessly float free into the sunny afternoon. Sound like a fairy tale? Fragrant Acres' Butterfly Farm specializes in making these dreams come true by offering live butterfly releases.
Choose Your Wedding Butterflies
With 22 years of experience, Fragrant Acres' Butterfly Farm is the premiere choice for a one-of-a-kind experience. You'll find two types of butterflies that travel well and will most definitely create a truly stunning activity at your event.
The Painted Lady with a 2 inch wing span are friendly, low flying butterflies suitable for all regions in the United States. The Monarch, with a larger 4 inch wing span, is the most popular for release. Set them free individually or for even more impact, select a Mixed Bouquet featuring both butterfly varieties.
These graceful fliers are able to be released in almost every state. Their website will tell you many of the regions where both painted lady and monarch mixes can be shipped for release. All the options they offer will be awe-inspiring to behold.
Choose Your Release
You can choose to release all your butterflies at once from a beautiful box, adorned with simple white flowers. Or get everyone in on the magic with special origami envelopes handed out to your guests that contain a single butterfly to set free. The envelopes can be printed with name and dates, making for a wonderful scrapbook keepsake.
Preparing for the Ideal Butterfly Release
The butterfly box and envelopes will arrive the night before your event in an insulated package; this keeps the butterflies asleep. An hour or two before release, the butterflies are put at room temperature to wake up. You decide the perfect time during your event for this magical display.
The Moment You'll Never Forget
A butterfly release visually expresses what the spirit feels. There couldn't be a more beautiful or fitting symbol of new life than dozens of butterflies flying out into the bright sunny world. In addition to weddings, anniversaries, special birthdays, funerals and memorials are all events that can be memorialized forever by setting free some of nature's most graceful soul mates. Fragrant Acres' Butterfly Farm will help you create that beautiful and symbolic moment that transcends words.
