@StL.Ashley:   ive never seen a dove realease IRL, but I’ve seen a butterfly release. Almost all of the little fluttes were dead :/. How do they get the birdies back? It seems like a poopy logistic problem

@Little_Hedgy:  +1. I was just wondering this! How do the birds come back? Are they trained? Do you get charged more if not all of them return?

I’ve heard that when actual doves are used they pretty much fly away and get killed by other birds immediately 🙁 I think some places use white pigeons instead, which tend to fair better. Might want to do a little more research about it first before committing to it, so you know what you are getting into!

They home. Like pigeons. They just go back to the trainer. No big whoop

@Tphan:  @Little_Hedgy:  Doves are pigeons, so I assume they are trained like homing/racing piegons.  I saw it explained once on a TV show that the bird’s mate is placed at the destination, and that it is their mates that they seek out over great distances.  It was just a ficitional show that happend to have carrier piegons in that episode, so I have no idea if it’s true, but it’s still all cute and stuff.

Worth mentioning that people have been known to get pooped on during bird releases. 😛 And I assume doves would be trained to return to their owners.

I would worry if they would poop on the couple or the guests. =X

Though technically, they are white pigeons
