Visit the Product Gallery to view companies Butterfly Release companies. These companies safely package and mail butterflies for release at funerals and memorial gatherings.
Release of butterflies is a ceremonial freeing of one or more butterflies and watching them fly. Butterflies don't necessarily fly away but might linger and socialize for a while.
A butterfly release is an exceptional way to memorialize a loved one. Some companies provide individual boxes so each guest can open a box releasing many butterflies at once.
This release, like the release of doves, signifies hope and transition.
Release of ladybugs by guests at a funeral or memorial gathering is another way to ceremonial let go of a loved one. Live ladybugs are often available at local garden stores.
