Booking Your Wedding Reception

The way you booking your wedding reception depends on the wedding venue you choose. You may wish to book all your wedding vendors separately. This would mean that you would have separate contracts for the venue/hall, caterer, decorator, cake decorator, bartenders and rental company. You have more flexibility to get exactly what you want. You may also book using an all in one package. You usually pay a price per guest.

 The goal of the wedding reception is to ensure that the wedding guests enjoy themselves. After the wedding, people will remember how much fun they had and if there were extra-ordinary events that happened at the wedding.


When should the wedding take place?

Summer Weddings

June, of course, is the most popular month in which to marry. The tradition began centuries ago with the ancient Romans. The month of June was named Juno, goddess of women and marriage, who vowed to protect those who married in her month. In many areas June is also the first month of predictable fair weather. Another June offering: roses, the quintessential romantic flowers that bloom profusely during this month. Being a June bride is worth the extra planning, if you’ve had that particular dream since adolescence, and the month does carry undeniable joyousness. Just be sure to allow enough time to make arrangements for services you need and want.

For couples who want a summer wedding but are not emotionally bound to the month of June, July is a fine choice. It’s the height of summer, nights are long, and outdoor weddings run little risk of bad weather (although humidity can be a formidable problem in some places). Family members who live far away may be more able to get time off from work to travel in summer months, and children are out of school. The same goes for August. It is such a popular vacation month that if you don’t send your invitations out well in advance, you might receive a higher number of regrets.

In June and July, the Butterfly Garden is a perfect spot with lots of beautiful flowers. The cover of the tent and sides allow for comfort ven with coller or hotter weather.

Fall is for Lovers    

There are numerous good reasons to consider getting married in September or October. The weather is mild and crisp, and the tide of summer travelers has ebbed a bit. In many parts of the country, the scenery is spectacular in the fall, making it easier to lure far-flung family and friends to your celebration. Some couples make the autumn foilage a key part of their wedding design using wreaths, harvest motifs, and a warm, firery palette in their decorating schemes.

Another advantage to autumn weddings: honeymoon destinations are less crowded, since most schools start in September.

In the past, brides have been very plaesed with our Garden and photos in the fall. Again the tent cover and sides allow for the needed protection from the weather.

Interesting Facts about Butterflies

Many butterflies can taste with their feet to find out whether the leaf they sit on is good to lay eggs on to be their caterpillars’ food or not.

There are more types of insects in one tropical rain forest tree than there are in the entire state of Vermont.

In 1958 Entomologist W.G. Bruce published a list of Arthropod references in the Bible. The most frequently named bugs from the Bible are: Locust: 24, Moth: 11, Grasshopper: 10, Scorpion: 10, Caterpillar: 9, and Bee: 4.

People eat insects – called “Entomophagy”(people eating bugs) – it has been practiced for centuries throughout Africa, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, and North, Central and South America. Why? Because many bugs are both protein-rich and good sources of vitamins, minerals and fats. Many insects can carry 50 times their own body weight. This would be like an adult person lifting two heavy cars full of people.

There are over a million described species of insects. Some people estimate there are actually between 15 and 30 million species.

Most insects are beneficial to people because they eat other insects, pollinate crops, are food for other animals, make products we use (like honey and silk) or have medical uses.

Butterflies and insects have their skeletons on the outside of their bodies, called the exoskeleton. This protects the insect and keeps water inside their bodies so they don’t dry out.

Some moths never eat anything as adults because they don’t have mouths. They must live on the energy they stored as caterpillars.

Butterfly Wedding Theme

A Butterfly theme is very popular for weddings. Invitations and decorating can easily revolve around this theme.  Our Butterfly Garden adds one more enhancement to the butterfly theme.

Butterflies are some of the most beautiful and interesting creatures on Earth. We have done some serious research to learn which kinds of butterflies are native to our area and then to learn which flowers and plants they both feed on and lay eggs on.  Plants were chosen that are native to our area and therefore easy to grow with the right conditions and care.

We are proud that we have made a habitat for butterflies in our garden and that we help with the conservation of the many species of quickly disappearing butterflies today.

Having a wedding in our Butterfly Garden will allow you to enjoy the beautiful plants and butterflies.

Why not choose a Butterfly Theme and use our garden!
