When should I place my order? Place your order at least 5-7 days prior to the event.

How many butterflies should I order? The average order is 4 dozen per 100 guests.

How warm does it need to be to release Butterflies? Butterflies will only take flight when the temperature is above 62°F, but the warmer the better. Philippines belong to a tropical country so there’s no problem about it.

What if I place an order, but the weather turns bad? If the forecast is unfavorable, call us at least three (3) days before the event, and we will gladly cancel the order and refund the full purchase amount. We don’t penalize you for Mother Nature’s indecision!

Can I release butterflies at night? There must be at least 30 minutes of light left once you release them so they can find a place to roost for the evening. To find the exact time that the sun will set for your date and location visit

How do the butterflies survive shipping? Each butterfly is fed and carefully placed inside our triangular boxes for their safety. They are surrounded by soft padding and packaged in an insulated cooler with a cool-pack. The cool temperature combined with minimal light keeps the butterflies hibernate during shipping.

What should I do when my Butterflies arrive? A complete instruction on how to care for and release your butterflies will accompany your order.
