Monarch Butterfly

Monarchs are the most well recognized and popular butterflies for release.  They are a lovely butterfly with vivid orange and black markings and a wingspan of 3 3/8th to 4 7/8th”.  A Monarch butterfly release is spectacular!  When Monarch butterflies are released they tend to soar and glide gracefully through the air.

Temperature MUST be at least 70F or warmer

How are they shipped

Each butterfly is hand fed and carefully inspected before delivery to ensure a perfect release on your wedding day.

We place one butterfly in it's own custom labeled envelope. All of the custom labeled envelopes are placed into a protective box. The protective box is then safely packaged with ice into an overnight shipping box, which keeps it well insulated. The butterflies are perfectly safe and content, so they require no special attention. The natural dark and cool condition keeps the butterflies in a comfortable resting state until the day of release.

Your live butterflies will be air expressed to you overnight, to arrive the day before the wedding. You simply keep the shipping box in a safe place, away from heat, until the day of the wedding.

* Is there someone on-site helping with the release?
If you wish we offer a Butterfly Release Planner "on-site" to guarantee a stress-free event and to help with the distribution of the individual boxes/envelopes.  

Cost : $100 plus travel expenses in the tri-state area.
