Doing a Butterfly Release

If you are thinking about doing a Butterfly Release for your loved one there are some steps to consider. First you need to find someone to get your Butterflies from unless you plan on trying to catch them yourself. This site http://www.forbutterflies.org/ lists different locations you can get Butterflies from.

It is important to check in advance of the date you need to make sure that they are available. These are typically seasonal for breeders and might be difficult to get. Once you find a person to get the Butterflies from you then need to arrange how you are going to get them and how far in advance.

The Butterflies are delivered to you and they are “sleeping”. Typically they are shipped on ice. Usually you wake them 2 1/2 hours before your event and put them in a cage of some sort (you can get from breeder) and spray water on the netting so they get some energy. We also gave them some watermelon to get them going prior to the event.

If you happen to order the Butterflies and they get delivered a day or so before the event you might have to wake them up and feed them and then put them back to sleep. Again, you can check with the breeder.

The Butterflies are shipped as adults and packaged ready for release. Each butterfly is placed in it’s own special release envelope or into a mass release box (net).

Once you are at the event you can pretty much do whatever you’d like. You can have a reading of some sort so people understand the reasoning behind the Butterfly release or anything that you want.

Once that is done everyone can release their Butterflies. When you open the envelopes you can take the Butterflies by the wings and put them on your hand, a flower or whatever you want. It is a good idea to have “real” flowers at the event in order to make the Butterflies want to stay in the area. It is also important to take the spray bottle of water so you can make the flower wet. The Butterflies will need water. All in all the Butterflies we released some flew away but others stayed for about 2 hours or so.

For our Butterfly relase we used Monarc Butterflies because supposedly they are the most “relaxed” for this type of setting. Also, best bet is to get a photographer to attend the event. It is too hard to plan, coordinate, and take pictures at the same time. It is well worth the few dollars to get it done correctly.

Have a wonderful event.

Butterfly Release

Today for our Son’s 1st Angel Date we had a Butterfly Release. Was not sure how it would turn out having never seen a Butterfly Release but my wife did alot of research and made the event a beautiful celebration for our son.

Below are some of the pictures that we took. We also had a photographer come, and she took pictures but we won’t have them for a few weeks.

Our daughter read this:

Butterflies Released as a symbol of your love.

“Today we celebrate Nick’s life with the release of butterflies. Butterflies symbolize the spirit of transformation, representing freedom and beauty as they take flight. When we experience the vital connection between butterflies and nature, we tend to feel that peace and harmony are truly around us.Their f light is a motion of freedom and calmness and is so beautiful to see.

Please let death be a butterfly with our loved one soaring in an existence that is too wonderful for us to comprehend! “Often in life what appears to be an ending is really a glorious new beginning”.

Today as we release the butterflies we are creating another unforgettable memory of Nick. And to let Nick know that we Love him and he will always live in our hearts and everything we do. Releasing the butterflies is releasing Nick so he can have peace and soar with the angels.

As you release this butterfly in honor of me, know that I’m with you and will always be. Hold a hand, say a prayer, close your eyes and see me there. Although you may feel a bit torn apart, please know that I’ll be forever in your heart. Now fly away butterfly as high as you can go, I’m right there with you more than you know.

The Butterfly you have been given will emerge from their envelopes and alight on your hand for a moment before flying off.
When instructed, please open the envelope and allow the butterfly to emerge on its own. It may take a few moments for the beautiful creature to adjust to the light and temperature before it flies off. These Butterflies are natives, will thrive and insure the continuation of their species, “Never Lose Faith”
