Traditionally origami butterflies often appear at Japanese weddings. The Butterflies are known as “Mecho” and “Ocho” and usually adorn sake wine bottles during the ceremony. A central part of the Japanese wedding ceremony is the “three times three” sips of sake taken by the bride and the groom alternately. Although no one is sure exactly what the original “Mecho” and “Ocho” symbolised, it is safe to say that they are now a recognisable tradition of the Japanese wedding, and therefore denote love, union, and even friendship.

I bought the beautiful origami paper on ebay, it cost me £1.95 for 20 sheets but I’m sure you could get it cheaper if you were buying it in bulk.

Check out how to fold it at this website.

I run a wedding entertainment agency called 'The Band Boutique'. Our aim is to find the perfect band or performer for each couple that come to us. Whether the theme of the reception is 'Country Wedding', 'Vintage Tea Party' or simply 'Traditional' we endeavour to hand pick something that will delight guests as well as giving the happy couple a performance to remember. From Harpists to Parisian Gypsy Jazz, Rock Bands to String Quartet's, The Band Boutique will definitely have something that floats your boat! Whilst running The Band Boutique, visiting wedding fairs and scouring the web, I have spotted lots of fantastic wedding ideas, and I feel obliged to share them with the world! Hopefully they will inspire everyone else as much as they have inspired me.
