The elegance, delicacy, and myriad of colors and patterns in a butterfly has always amazed us. Using this symbol of love as a wedding theme is certainly one of the best ways to make the ceremony memorable, for you as well as for your guests. Here are a few ideas that you could incorporate when planning a butterfly themed wedding.
Wedding Invitations
Abstract invitation card
Hire a professional wedding card dealer or make them yourself, if you have enough time.
You may download free invitation templates from wedding websites and use them for making cute invitation cards. You may include butterfly quotes in them that can relate to the wedding.
For example, the quote by Jeffrey Glassberg, which says, Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine.
