dove is white coloured and white denotes peace.thats why i think dove is considered as a symbol of peace.they are flown as a message of world peace and freedom to all.

Now a days it has become a ceremonial symbolic event...however in ancient times,I guess this must be symbolising peace and freedom both...

Doves - Symbol of Peace
I guess dove represents peace. So whenever they release doves on occasions like wedding, anniversaries, invocations, inauguration, etc. it is a symbol of giving out peace. Releasing is also a symbol of freedom which means freedom from war or any trouble so when you release a dove then it means that is the start of a life free from war and hence peaceful life ahead.
