Want a punch of powerful red at your wedding? Poppies may be just what you’re looking for. These bold blooms are associated with beauty, magic, dreaminess, consolation, and fertility, to name a few. Poppies come in several colors, including orange, yellow, blue, and red which is the most common. A simple bouquet of red poppies with bridesmaids in poppy red silk chiffon dresses would make for a bright and cheery summer wedding. I also love the idea of the bridal party carrying large paper poppies, like the one made by Adorn Flowers. Tie the guys into the theme with handmade clay poppy cuff links by Woodland Honey. And of course, who could resist a perfectly formed sugar poppy to top off the cake!
