WHite Doves at Weddings - Bringing Back an Age Old TraditionWritten by Tamara Baker
Continued from page 1
You may have seen an email going around recently. It is a picture of a pair of newlyweds releasing their doves by hand. The groom is in a pin-striped coat and bride is wearing a strapless white satin dress. The couple are enthusiastically tossing their doves into air. But it's not only doves that find their freedom. The brides breasts managed to escape from her dress when she threw her dove into air. Their photographer managed to capture event perfectly! I am telling you this story because it is another reason to hire professional dove releasers.
I know it feels great to hurl doves into air at end of your wedding ceremony. But we have always recommended to our clients that you only have to open your hands to let doves free (even if bride is wearing a cast-iron bra and a dress with straps of steel so there is no danger of exposing herself). The reasons we tell people NOT to throw doves are, firstly, doves need no encouragement to fly away. They love to fly and can't wait to get out of your hands. But more importantly, when you see photos of dove release in months to come, you will probably think that you look ridiculous with your hands up in air doing "hallelujah" pose. These are all aspects that professional dove releasers consider when taking doves to your wedding. Another thing, if you are considering incorporating a white dove release into your ceremony, don't (I repeat DON'T) let one of groom's know-it-all mates organise it for you! These are kinds of blokes who would try to get best deal with everything by taking short-cuts ....do you know anyone like that? The problem is that they know nothing at all about birds. I occasionally get calls from guys like this who want to "buy some birds on cheep" (pun intended). I always tell them that we never let our birds go to an event without a dove release attendant. If these guys ever do manage to get hold of some cheap white birds, I certainly wouldn't want to go anywhere near them - you never know what sort of diseases they might have. Plus, you would be lucky if they don't go splat on ground when they are released because they don't have fitness to fly very far. Professional Dove Releasers always have clean, healthy, fit birds. They are bathed regularly and because we know a sick bird when we see one, we are always checking our pigeons for lice, worms and other bird diseases. By hiring a professional white dove releaser, it's only guarantee that doves at your ceremony will be perfect.
White Dove releasing is a gorgeous and elegant expression of peace and love. So follow in footsteps of brides and grooms from ancient times and experience it for yourself.
