It’s the little things that make a wedding memorable and the latest hot trend for modern brides is not only little, it’s light, delicate, sophisticated and symbolic.
Rice Butterflies are now available in the UK as an alternative to confetti. The sole distributor is http://www.ricebutterflies.co.uk/.
While bubbles can sometimes be impractical in unpredictable British weather, and boxes of confetti have been seen a thousand times before, Rice Butterflies are beautifully packaged and eco-friendly. Made from rice paper, rice grain and rice glue only, they are bio-degradable and available in five colours (natural/white, red, blue, green and yellow), with approx 125 butterflies per pack. The paper is all-weather safe so colours won’t run near those gorgeous wedding and bridesmaids dresses either!
If you want a reaction from your guests, or are a photographer looking for a talking point to get guests animated, then rice butterflies might just be for you! Children will be captivated and your wedding pictures will certainly have the wow-factor. Flutter-by fabulous!
Brides can buy directly online or if they prefer an on-line form at http://www.ricebutterflies.co.uk/free-rb.php can be completed by the couple which will send a message to all their wedding guests stating that they would like to be showered by the beautiful Rice Butterflies! Guests can then purchase this product as a treat for the couple!
Beyond the visual aspects, butterflies are also hugely symbolic, too. In many cultures, they are a symbol of transformation and celebration, perfect for marking a marriage. In Greek mythology, Psyche (translating to mean “soul”) is represented in the form of a butterfly. Psyche shares an enduring bond with Eros, the Greek god of love, who is also known in Roman myth as Cupid.
Rice is also used at European weddings as a symbol of celebration. “Rice is often used because it is symbolic of plentiful crops, which leads to thoughts of prosperity and fertility,” said Greek anthropologist Alkippe Aidonopoulou. “Rice Butterflies, being a 100% rice product, are following the same tradition.”
