Please book as far in advance as possible to reserve butterflies for your occasion.   This is a "breed to order industry" and it takes much planning and preparation to have the butterflies ready on time for your event. It helps us to have as much notice as possible. 

Shipping and other costs are subject to change according to FedEx.

A 50% Deposit required at the time of the order.  Orders are shipped to arrive the day before your event.  Someone must be there to receive and sign for the box and to care for the butterflies until the release. Instructions will be provided.

For funerals, memorials celebrations of life ...and other occasions we'd like to know:
· Date of your event
· How many butterflies you want
· Your address or postal code so that we can get a quote on shipping
· Whether you would like individual or mass release
· Other details or questions you have

Balance of payment is due 15 days prior to the shipment.

Please note: A Bride or Groom may be too busy to take charge of butterflies on the day of their wedding so we recommend someone else be assigned the task of "butterfly care-giver". This is easy and instructions can be provided. 
Please Note: Someone must be available from 9am to 5pm to receive and sign for the FedEx delivery (usually the Friday before the wedding). The butterflies are shipped with frozen ice packs in the box to keep them inactive and dormant for the journey. The "butterfly care-giver" will need to replace the ice packs with frozen ones. Dollar store ice packs work well for this. Planning ahead is best. 
We do not ship Butterflies before mid-May or after mid-Sept.

Individual Release Boxes .50 each
Pictured here are some mass release boxes. I line each one with netting on the bottom and on the underside of the lid for the butterflies to have something on which to cling while in transit.
