A unique wedding theme, like a butterfly wedding, can be a lot of fun if you do it correctly. If overdone a theme like this can become almost tacky. But if done with a touch of elegance and subtlety, the butterfly wedding can be one that you and your guests will remember forever.
Here are a few tips and a few points to think about when considering this wedding theme.
The butterfly wedding absolutely can be done with elegance. How to stay away from straying to the tacky side? Keep everything low key. Just because it is a butterfly wedding does not mean that every detail about the wedding must be butterfly oriented. The key is to choose a few elements that are related to your favorite kind of butterfly, and simply match the colors and flowers to this theme. Maybe add a tasteful wedding favor with a butterfly theme, or simply have butterfly wedding invitations and programs. There are some great ideas for making your own handmade butterfly invitations at http://www.do-it-yourself-invitations.com.
Choosing the butterfly as your wedding theme creates a great opportunity for gorgeous wedding colors. There are many species of butterfly. Pick one that appeals most to you and run with it. Most butterflies have rich and luscious colors which are great for pairing with any wedding color scheme. The black found in most butterfly species’ wings will be represented in the groom and groomsmen tuxedos. The rest of the colors can be made up in flower arrangements or the bridesmaid’s dresses.
Another great way to pick your flower arrangements for a butterfly wedding is to choose arrangements of flowers that your butterflies are most attracted to. This could be anything from wild flowers indigenous to the area you live in, to flowers of certain colors.
Looking for a great location for your butterfly wedding? Why not go for the obvious and opt for holding your ceremony at a butterfly garden? That would certainly match the theme! Not to mention no need to provide your flower arrangements since you will be in a garden. All you’ll need is your bridal bouquet, corsages for the bridesmaids, and boutonnieres for the groomsmen.If you do not have a butterfly garden within reasonable distance, you can always go for the butterfly release. There are many online stores specializing in this service just for wedding ceremonies.
Whether you choose the butterfly garden, or the butterfly release, don’t overlook the great photo opportunities you will have with the butterfly wedding theme. Your wedding photographs are some of the most special photos will will ever cherish. Can you picture you wedding pictures complete with butterflies resting on your gorgeous wedding dress? That is almost fairytale!
However you choose to execute this unique wedding theme always remember to keep it simple and elegant and you cannot go wrong.
