Boxes of confetti have been seen a thousand times before but Rice Butterflies are beautifully packaged and eco-friendly. Made from rice paper, rice grain and rice glue only, they are biodegradable and available in five colours (natural/white, red, blue, green and yellow), with approx. 125 butterflies per pack.
The paper is all-weather safe so colours won’t run near that gorgeous dress.
The classy packaging fits with many themes, from vintage to contemporary, or for weddings with a butterfly motif, of course.
Beyond the visual aspects, butterflies are also hugely symbolic, too. In many cultures, they are a symbol of transformation and celebration, perfect for marking a marriage.
In Greek mythology, Psyche (translating to mean “soul”) is represented in the form of a butterfly. Psyche shares an enduring bond with Eros, the Greek god of love, who is also known in Roman myth as Cupid.
Rice is also symbolic, used at European weddings as a symbol of celebration. “Rice is often used because it is symbolic of plentiful crops, which leads to thoughts of prosperity and fertility,” said Greek anthropologist Alkippe Aidonopoulou. “Rice Butterflies, being a 100% rice product, are following the same tradition.”
Brides can buy online, or if they prefer an on-line form at www.ricebutterflies.co.uk can be completed by the couple, which will send out a message to all of their wedding guests alerting guests that the couple would like to be showered by the beautiful Rice Butterflies allowing guests to buy this product as a treat for the couple!
