Spring and summer weddings are just around the corner and butterfly wedding ideas couldn’t be more appropriate! Here are a few elements of the butterfly that lend so beautifully to weddings, we can’t help but put together a style story to share our excitement.

The Butterfly

All butterflies are beautiful and having a mix of butterflies throughout your wedding is stunning. However, we love the idea of drawing inspiration from a specific butterfly but you can also use generic butterfly elements to fill in the gaps. The Butterfly Swirl Wedding Invitations are simply magical with a rustic woodgrain background, graceful swirls and intricate butterflies flying around your wording.

The Color

Butterflies come in all kinds of color so your options are wide open but if you have a specific butterfly that captures your heart, use its colors as your wedding colors. We love how the color purple is threaded throughout this entire wedding look from the custom wedding napkins to the reception’s tablecloths.

The Patterns

The patterns on butterfly wings are so gorgeous they simply have to play a role in your wedding whether they’re featured in butterfly designs or taken from the butterfly to inspire other design elements like the bride’s dress shown here or the light fixture shown in the reception hall. Imagine what you can do with this concept if you get a little creative!
