 Suggestions of quotes, poems and legends to read during your butterfly release.


When you are doing the very special act of releasing butterflies, it is always important that you have a few things to say either before you release the butterflies or during the time you are releasing them. If you are releasing butterflies for your wedding, you may have your vows already written, but perhaps you would like to include one of these famous quotes that can be said during the butterfly release!

Our first is by an anonymous person, but it is definitely one that would work when you are releasing butterflies at your wedding:

Love is like a butterfly, it settles upon you when you least expect it.

One of the most popular sayings to incorporate into your release is the American Indian Legend about the butterfly. Below is a suggestion of how to use this legend during your wedding butterfly release:

If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.

Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly can not reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.

In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish.

So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom, the wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.

We have all gathered to grant this couple all our best wishes and are about to set these butterflies free in trust that all these wishes will be granted.

Then there is this lovely Irish blessing:

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

When it comes to releasing butterflies on your wedding day, you want to make sure that it is special and that you are letting your new husband/wife know exactly what you are feeling. If you have written your own vows, incorporating butterflies and everything that they stand for into your vows is a great way to tie the butterflies being released into your ceremony.
