A wedding is a big event that happens once in a lifetime, at least for most people. That’s why it takes time and patience to prepare it.
For most brides and grooms, they even spend almost a year to get things ready. So, if you want to start preparing yours now, you could begin by setting a theme for your wedding.
A theme is more than just a color or a pattern; it’s a concept or a vision that pulls everything together. It creates a vibe on your special event like for instance, whimsical, romantic, or bohemian.
But if you want a classic yet symbolic theme for your marriage -- the one that speaks your transformation from single people to lawfully wedded partners, you should consider butterflies.
Planning A Butterfly-Themed Wedding
Butterfly-theme is one of the most popular wedding themes. It’s beautiful, symbolic, and romantic. It represents many good things, such as joy, magic, and mystique. Other than the symbolic meaning, the decor creates a good impression for you and your guests.
It’s a great theme, whether you want your nuptial indoor or outdoor.
For example, a butterfly design can make a prominent accent to an otherwise plain invitation; placing the preserved bug inside a glass cylinder vase makes an exquisite centerpiece; a white escort card can look even more sophisticated by dressing it up with DIY paper butterflies.
Of course, adding it to you and your entourage’s attire makes an excellent fashion statement. For instance, a butterfly-inspired necklace or bracelet makes can make a good accent on a traditional ivory dress of the flower girl. You can also go extra by having a flower girl jewelry set.
