Butterflies! Yes there will be many a butterflies
in the stomachs of bride, the groom and their respective
elders as the date draws close by to secure all the
arrangements without any lapses. Any pending jobs
will make them feel 'butterflies in stomach' experience.
But it is not the virtual butterflies or the butterflies
like feeling in the stomach that we are saying here!
It is the release of real butterflies.
Western weddings these days are becoming more and
trendier with new practices coming into existence.
'Butterfly release' has become the most sought after
fad these days, especially at weddings. This practice
has almost been replacing the much followed and the
erstwhile popular 'Rice Throwing' custom. Throwing
rice is now a pass and needless to say the 'butterfly
releases' practice has been mostly enticed by the
fashion-conscious young brigade of the 20th century.
Most of the modern-day weddings are ending with the
butterfly releases as the newlywed couple walks out
of the church after the wedding ceremony. As the couple
exits the church, many hundreds of butterflies are
released slowly into the skies, and we can understand
why the new generation is fond of this practice. It
is such a lovely seen to watch as the colorful butterflies
take flight to the skies and even the couple's photographs
with butterflies can be really lovely pieces.
What does Butterfly Releases Symbolizes?
It has several answers but one thing is for sure butterflies
do no harm to the environment and they give a classier
appearance than rice. Simply they descend colors to
the wedding ceremony and add array of colors to the
wedding pictures too.
Once the wedding vows are exchanged both bride and
the groom will be pronounced as wife and husband and
they walk hand in hand to exit the church. At this
point they will be given a neatly packed box and asked
to open. The emerging colorful butterflies from the
box will bring lovely smiles on the couple's face
and it's just wonderful to watch to their smiles increase
with more and more butterflies emerging out. Soon
the entire lounge area will be filled with many butterflies
some landing on your hair, some on Ms. Clive's bag,
one on the rose you are holding, and it will be a
challenge for the wedding photographer to trap each
one of them through his lens.
Release of Butterflies represent new life and hope
as interpreted and believed. Also some interpret it
that the bride and the groom should free their respective
individual feelings and expressions. Some easterners
are also of the opinion that you tell a wish to a
butterfly and it will be fulfilled. As butterflies
represent plethora of colors it can be taken that
the newlywed couple will enter a saga of colorful
and blissful life. When there are so many restrictions
in many places for the 'rice throwing tradition',
butterfly releases tradition' offers best alternative.
So go ahead and release as many butterflies as you
want to add myriads of color and beauty to your dream
day, but see that your photographer comes prepared
to handle this extra load of work.
