Two Brides

Just Sad

I know a lot of people like the idea of releasing doves or butterflies at their wedding. It’s cruel because the animals end up dying in transport or being released in an unfamilar area.

I got to edit a wedding last week and saw the result of one bride disregarding nature. She went to release, mmm, maybe 12 boxes of butterflies. 3 flew out when all the boxes were opened. The rest, 4 butterflies per box, were dead. The children didn’t understand the butterflies were dead and a little boy kept carrying around a dead butterfly. It was sad and creepy.

So she didn’t get the dramatic release I’m sure was in her head and a bunch of butterflies died needlessly.
