Response: Be aware that butterflies cannot be released if the temperature is less than about 68 degrees, making them inappropriate for winter weddings or cool spring and fall days.
When first released the butterflies will need nourishment before they have the strength to fly very far. If you spray your bouquet and your bridesmaids bouquets with sugar-water, the butterflies will stay around and you can get some gorgeous pictures. If you dont want to spray your bouquets, be sure that there are numerous live flowers near the ceremony area to provide the necessary nourishment. If you dont have a source of food for them, then you will see the butterflies fall to the ground and be crushed by the guests.
Also, dont allow children to handle the butterflies. If they do, the butterflies will lose the fine coating on their wings that enables them to fly and they will die.
