Butterflies Are Perfect Guests!

The American Indian Butterfly Legend

If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first catch a butterfly and whisper that wish to it. Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly can not reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.

So, according to the legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom, in gratitude the wish will be taken to the heavens by the butterfly and be granted by the Great Spirit.

We are gathered to give this couple all our best wishes and are about to set these butterflies free in trust that all these wishes will be granted.

Print and make it part of your occasion!

Having a Wedding or Special Gathering?

Include your guests or special family members in a Wish carried to the heavens by one or dozens of majestic Monarchs. This is a simple affordable and unforgettable memory which is quite easy to accomplish. Just open their envelopes or netting and make sure the cameras are ready. Butterflies need to be released outdoors with temperatures above 60 degrees and no heavy rains. Please call us for details and to determine the proper amount for maximum effect. Please call ahead to reserve your Monarchs as quantities are limited during season. Our first concern is the the safety of the butterfly and the perfect memory for you and your guests.

Our butterflies are guaranteed the best, largest, healthiest you have seen! We grow our caterpillar food plants hydroponically. We do not use artificial diets. Find Out Why? We are not just a business that sells butterflies we are a National Not For Profit Foundation that protects / restores butterfly habitat across North America.

Why Monarchs?..Because they are the best! Monarchs are one of the largest, most elegant and docile butterflies that can be safely shipped throughout most of North America. Our Monarchs are people friendly and often remain in the area for quite some time and frequently land on delighted guests and floral arrangements where they often pose for pictures.

We do have other varieties. Click here to see them Mixed Varieties they usually cost a little less, but we can not always predict exactly which types will be perfect to ship to your location due to their erratic emergence patterns. We ship best available always. While we prefer the Monarch,your event may require a larger pallet of colors. We are able to assist you with a variety of equally beautiful large winged butterflies that will enhance your event. Please call us with your questions and to go over which types may be legally sent to your state. Your perfect event is in the details. Toll free USA 877 722-8624.

Not all butterflies are created equal, Monarchs are hardy butterflies that survive the trip, they do not stain your clothing or guests like the much smaller and mothlike painted ladies can. While less expensive it is no joy to release anything that may annoy you or your guests on such an important day. The truth about painted ladies is "a release" is more like "an escape", do not blink or you will miss them as they flee. They are almost impossible to photograph as is evident by the lack of their posed photographs on any site. One Monarch is 4 times the size and 20 times as impressive.
