Attire can easily be transformed to suit your butterfly theme. Purchase a variety of butterfly appliqués at a fabric or craft store. These can easily be sewn onto everything from the bride’s dress, headdress and ribbons that can be tied around bouquets. The bride can wear a butterfly accented garter. The bride and her female attendants can wear jewelry with a butterfly on it (necklaces, earrings, hair pins, etc.). For the groom and groomsmen, butterfly cufflinks or lapel pins would be a nice touch. Your ring bearer could also carry a ring pillow with a butterfly appliqué on it.
Locations for your Butterfly Wedding
When it comes to choosing a location for your butterfly theme wedding, outdoor venues will fit the theme best. If you have a local zoo, it’s possible they have a butterfly sanctuary that would make the ideal location. A park with an elaborate garden would be the next best choice. If you’re staging the wedding in your backyard garden, plan ahead by planting flowers and plants that attract butterflies, such as lilac, honeysuckle, phlox, impatiens, aster and some daisies. Butterfly-attracting plants differ from region to region, so check with your local gardener for specifics.
