I’m sure it’s been done really well and has/can be beautiful, but all I can think about is that episode of Two and A Half Men, where their mom gets married at Charlie’s house and Berta opens the box of butterflies and they’re all dead. Cracks me up!

If you search for butterfly releases on the Bee, you will see that topics involving using living things as props in weddings does not go well with other posters. 

While the symbolism would be beautiful for you two, I am just going to say that I think it isn’t worth it and often ends with a lot of dead butterflies in a box.

Please don’t have living things as props in your wedding.

My mom and stepdad did this at their wedding. The butterflies wouldn’t come out of the box so they kind of had to shake/dump them out. It was just awkward to watch and probably not very pleasant for the butterflies either.

@WhiteWedding:  I thought of this too!

I’ve seen too many mishaps happen where the butterflies are either dead or they just sit in the box unable to move. It sounds beautiful in theory, but really the possibility of it ending terribly (like killing some poor innocent butterflies) just isn’t worth it.

@Regina Phalange:  This happened on Four Weddings too. 

OP I think you should try to come up with something else.
