Some of My Favorite Quotes About This Theme:

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun

And find your shoulder to light on,

To bring you luck, happiness and riches

Today, tomorrow and beyond.

~Irish Blessing

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.

And everyone deserves a little sunshine.  

~Jeffrey Glassberg

With the rose the butterfly's deep in love,

A thousand times hovering round;

But round himself, all tender like gold,

The sun's sweet ray is hovering found...

~Heinrich Heine

Greek Mythology:

Avia Venefica explains another interesting point of view. She points out the importance of the butterfly in Greek mythology. The Greek god “Psyche” is represented by a butterfly. Psyche and Eros (the Greek god of love) forever share a deep love between each other. Is this not perfect for a wedding theme?
