Are you having a wedding with a Butterfly theme? Here’s a great cheap way of decorating your venue or an idea for DIY favours.
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.
