Poppies are popular with stylish brides who want bright, modern bouquets. These intoxicating blossoms are also a beautiful way to remember loved ones who will be missed more than ever on your wedding day. In the western world, the poppy has long symbolized remembrance. After poppies sprang up where trenches had been dug in The First World War, people in Europe began to make and sell silk poppies, to be pinned to lapels in honor of heroic lost veterans.
