Y U NO CTHULHU?! xD
Doves and pigeons are the same thing; it is a purely semantic difference.
your fiancee will rightly disagree.
There are many species of doves and pigeons. The pigeons most people talk about are the Rock Dove (Columba livia). Real white doves are a mutation of the Ringneck Dove (Streptopelia risoria). However the white "doves" in wedding releases are homing pigeons- Rock Doves (Columba livia) again. Just white. Real doves don't have a strong homing instinct and would really be a one use release.
While they are technically the same thing, "Dove" in English (at least here in the States) is usually in reference to the pure white bird (typically viewed in a positive light- (weddings, peace,innocence, etc) while "Pigeon" is thought of as the more common gray bird found in cities and viewed as a nuisance and pest ("rats with wings" etc).
Correct. Additionally, "releasing a pigeon" also means "to fart" in Hungary
Giant cephalopod or the lovely spiced rum, either Kraken is an awesome addition to a wedding
What about releasing the hounds?
I think they might be referring to the rum called the Kraken. http://www.krakenrum.com/ Which is good i must admit.
