This document is a contractual agreement between Doves In Flight Co. (we/us) and the party or parties listed above (you), for the purpose of understanding certain responsibilities assumed by you and what limitations may apply.

Dove Order

Doves need to be picked up by you or your representative on the day of the event. Forgetting to pick them up will result in loss of rental fee and deposit. You are responsible for transporting and returning all cages, stands, linens, tapes/CDs, etc. in the same condition as they were sent out, and by the day after your event, unless our dove release handler is being used. Cages must be kept in an upright position at all times to prevent spills or accidents. Cages must be carried with support under the cages, not from the top. You are responsible for preventing an accidental release of the doves from the cage, for adequate drinking water for the doves once they reach your event/release location and for preventing prolonged exposure of the doves to direct sunlight. The doves are not to be left in a hot vehicle and should be placed in a shaded location or in a cool building until it is time for the event to begin. It is not necessary to feed the doves. You agree to release the doves from the pre-selected location(s) only.

The doves are not to be released if it is raining or in high winds. If you have questions about the suitability of the weather for a dove release, you should call 517-622-5808 to clarify. In case of unfavorable weather, the two doves in the decorated cage may be taken to the hall for the reception, but care must be taken that guests do not open the cage! They can be returned the next day. In the event that there are more than two doves for release, the remaining doves need to be returned, in their cage, immediately after the wedding. There is no refund for the first two doves; there is a 100% refund on any additional doves, which you were not able to release.

Final counts are due 30 days before your event date. Final payments must be received by us no later than 3 weeks prior to your event date.
