Could you maybe release a pair of butterflies as you exit the church (in place of birdseed/bubbles/etc., or in addition to them)?

I would put a note in the programs about the significance of the yellow butterfly to you, but do not do a butterfly release. Most of them end up dead or stunned, and that is not a good way to commemorate your loved ones.

How about little butterfly confetti on the aisle or tables?

Please don’t release butterflies–they will die.  You can incorporate yellow butterflies into your wedding in many ways without killing innocent creatures.  Others have made good suggestions and you have as well.  You could have butterfly charms hanging on your bouquet, you could buy the fake butterflies made of feathers and have them in your bouquet, in  your hairpiece, in your flower centerpieces, on tree branch centerpieces–really anywhere in the decor you’d want them.  You could have the flower girls scatter yellow rose petals down the aisle and you could have them wearing little yellow fairy/butterfly wings.

something you could is use yellow paper and cut them into butterflys and have them threw up as you exit the church and mix some into the petals for them flower girl to threw down and you could buy a feather butterfly on wire to have the effect of it flying above the flowers you carry stick it in the center. for a small butterfly template you can look on line I’m going to use a template to cut out butterflys in many colors and string them onto fishingwire and put it up at the alter and around the reception area with candles.

@shugalicious:  I think it would be very sweet to have a small yellow butterflies, maybe made of paper, or see what you can find at the craft store, just silently sitting at different areas around the ceremony and reception venues.  Kind of like how your friend just sends you a sign out of nowhere.  The other idea that i had was to perhaps donate a butterfly house to the venue.. either the church or the reception venue, maybe if they would allow it or if it is in an area where butterflies woudl thrive.  I don;t know much about butterfly houses but I know someone who had one made and she put it in her garden.  Now is the time of year to be looking for all kinds of butterfly decor!  Maybe get a butterfly paper punch too and on the programs or invites you can have a butterfly punched (Or even embossed!) into the paper.  (I dunno just throwing around some ideas here…)
