Whether it is a wedding or some other celebration if one wants to have pretty white birds released, well, why?  And second of all, if you insist on releasing white birds, use a professional.  Do not, as apparently happened in Queens this past weekend, do it yourself.  The birds will suffer and die and that is not what your wedding or special event should be about, right?
