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 to allow for planning our breeding schedule.
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.
The easiest way is to send an inquiry via email. 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 are after individual or mass release
· Other details or questions you have
Balance of payment is due 15 days prior to the shipment

Date of the release. Please note wedding orders are usually shipped on Thursdays and arrive the Friday before the wedding. Speciall delivery arrangements can be made for other events.
Preferred payment method:
We accept cheques in the mail, Visa and MasterCard (via Square)
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.
