Cozumel butterfly release
butterflies at Cozumel weddingsButterflies are the symbol of transformation, representing a new beginning; peaceful and happy.

Our butterflies are delivered to you the day of your wedding or event to ensure the smooth running of your butterfly release. The butterflies in their special release box are ready to fly and the box is nicely decorated to match your chosen color theme for your wedding or special event.

They are distributed to your guests and after a few words, or perhaps a meaningful poem, to compliment your occasion, the butterflies are released simultaneously to provide a delightful display.

"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond." 

We offer several butterfly release package deals and additional items to make  your butterfly release look even more beautiful.

Tradition and Legend
According to an American Indian legend, if anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it. Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly cannot reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.
In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom, the Great Spirit always grants the wish.

So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom, the wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.
