Butterfly Wedding Theme
Butterflies are popular for wedding themes for many reasons. Their colorful beauty has always been an inspiration and they are just perfect to set lighter and more playful tones of the wedding reception which best suits everybody who is young at heart.
There is also the metamorphosis, the change from caterpillar into attractive butterfly which symbolize the one of the most crucial changes in life of human being: a wedding ceremony where two individuals unite into a couple with shared burdens and multiplied joy. As we can see at presented cards, all colors can be used in this theme, what opens many lovely posibilities to incorporat the chosen theme with the venue or personal preferences.
Nautical wedding theme is another popular option which resembles already mentioned beach themed ideas with emphasized symbolism. Safe harbour, tying the knot, and similar are widely used in relation to marriage. An anchor, as symbol of hope, safety and optimism is almost a must in this theme.
If we compared a metamorphosis of the butterfly with a wedding day, most of nautical elelments allude more on the marriage as a path with inevitable ups and downs. Just think about the ocean waves with occasional storms of passion with calmer cuddly periods ... Nautic motifs are popular thanks to dominant combination of both classic bridal colors (blue and white) with an addition of triumphant gold as well.
We presented only few of the possibilities from the immense area of formal, informal and themed wedding invitation cards. We wish you successful planning and many precious memories!
