While you are in the duty of catering for any wedding event, you should remember that wedding is an event, which is full of emotions and entertainment. Now, you can add the flavors of more joy and entertainment on the event with the foods of great quality and nice food serving skills. The wedding catering is not very much different if compared to some other catering events. But the difference can be seen in the menu of dishes.

The main aim of maximum of the wedding catering to serve the foods that is delicious to some extent and must satisfy the hunger of the guests. For an example in a 'business meeting', the primary aim is a good chat about a particular business fact. A good dinner can follow the business chat. But in wedding, the wedding cake, menu and good quality foods are very much important. Sometimes a wedding party may be based on some particular theme. In that case, the menu should follow the 'theme wedding party'. For an example, if any wedding party is based on some theme related to Rome or Italy, you have to go for the Italian menu in the dinner of that particular wedding party. But only the theme-based menu is not good enough for a theme based wedding party. You should remember that probably some of the guests are not comfortable with the food of that particular theme. So you have to organize the foods of some other variation like Thai foods or Indian foods or the Chinese foods. Moreover, you should remember that might be there are some people present in the particular wedding party, who are restricted to have some special diet. So that you must organize some special diet too, which each and every one can eat. You should consider the religious preferences about the food the guests of a particular wedding party too. Selection of drinks is also as important as to select the menu of foods. Don't forget to add the mineral water to the list of the drinks ever.

Secondly, you should appoint some catering guides while the 'food serving' is going on. The appointed 'food servers' should act modest with the guests of the party. The 'catering guides' will instruct the 'food servers' about the ways of food serving. The food counters should be created in multiple places in the party hall instead of a single place. So you can understand that a 'wedding catering event' can achieve some great success if it is done with some proper planning.

The Beauty of a Butterfly Wedding

One of the most beautiful wedding themes you can use is the butterfly wedding. Even more impressive is the wedding where there's a butterfly release.

A Butterfly Wedding Theme

The first consideration when you are thinking about having a butterfly wedding where you will be releasing hundreds or thousands of butterflies is to do a complete butterfly theme for the wedding. This is where people get into trouble. Overdoing the theme where everything is "butterfly" oriented becomes tacky very quickly. This is why, even though a butterfly theme can form the foundation of a truly wonderful wedding, it's very important to keep the theme very low key.

When you are planning to release butterflies, that is often enough so that butterfly images aren't really needed on things like napkins of table cloth. By simply complimenting the "thought" of butterflies with things like wedding colors that compliment the species of butterflies that you purchased, or flowers throughout, guests will quickly recognize the theme and will appreciate the taste and style with which it was accomplished.

Always pick your flower arrangements to compliment the colors of the butterflies you've selected. It is easy to obtain pictures of the butterflies online, even from the breeder where you order the butterflies for release. Make sure the bridesmaid's dresses are complimentary. The groom and groomsmen will almost always be complimentary, because most butterfly wings have black in them.

Also, have your wedding in a location that makes sense to release butterflies. Either a butterfly garden, or any outdoor wedding would make a beautiful ceremony that is centered upon the beautiful transformation and release to the freedom and independence represented by the butterfly. Also make sure that the photographers for your wedding are aware that you're going to be doing a butterfly release. They will surely want to prepare their cameras for the unique photo opportunities such an event provides.

Releasing Butterflies at a Wedding

Releasing butterflies at a wedding is becoming an increasingly popular way to create a unique and memorable ceremony. It is extremely easy to purchase a variety of species of butterfly online, simply conduct a web search for "butterfly release."

The butterflies require very little to stay alive, so they are shipped to you in special "cooler" boxes, which they can be released from directly, or transferred to a larger "release basket" where they can be released. Instead of the traditional rice or birdseed, releasing a large group of butterflies at once creates a beautiful scene that both adults and children will love.

When the butterflies arrive, they've been cooled so that they enter a partial hibernation mode, where they get sluggish. They should be kept in these coolers until the ceremony. About 90 minutes before they are going to be released, you should transfer them to a warmer location so that they can perk up and become more active, otherwise many of them may not immediately launch into flight.

Calculating Butterflies to Buy

If you have never purchased live creatures before, it can feel a little strange. However, it is very common. People around the world release live butterflies into the wild for a variety of reasons. The butterflies are not hurt when they are shipped, in particular because they are placed in a cooler container that reduces their energy levels. It is a perfectly safe transition from where they are breeded to where you will be releasing them.

Most experts suggest having one butterfly for every two guests for good effect. In other words if you have 200 guests at your wedding, it's a good idea to purchase 100 butterflies. You can either have guests release the butterflies, or release them all at once from a basket. Make sure to indicate your intentions when you order the butterflies from the breeder, because the breeder may have their own advice about what works best.

Is it Too Expensive?

Compared to other wedding costs, purchasing live butterflies is very inexpensive. One dozen butterflies is typically $90. The typical butterfly is either Monarch or the Painted Lady. Releasing these butterflies is considered perfectly normal for the butterflies and for the environment, and it will create one of the most memorable wedding ceremonies your guests will ever attend.
