A very engaging butterfly to create an experience you and your guests will never forget! Perfect for weddings, quinceañeras, and other celebrations with your family.
If you want to see the white butterflies in action, here is a link to see what the release looked like (this is about 200 white butterflies).
How many butterflies should I order? You can order as many as you like. If you are looking for a spectacular release experience, we recommend 50-100 butterflies for small to medium sized groups. This quantity creates a release experience that engages everyone present with a beautiful fountain of butterflies. For very small groups or those on a budget, you can create a wonderful experience with as few as a dozen butterflies. The more you get, the more you save! If you need a specific number, please order from the single white butterflies page, or contact us directly. Very simple instructions are included to guide you through the release process.

Why do white butterflies? These butterflies, known as Cabbage Whites, are a naturalized butterfly found all over North America. They are excellent pollinators, and know what to do after they are released, Many will stick around the flowers for a while, and will eventually fly off and find a place to nectar, mate, and reproduce. For many people, white butterflies are the only butterflies they ever see, and we appreciate your support to release more of these beautiful pollinators during your celebration.
