Thursday 11th November is Remembrance Day, and special services will be held at churches and war memorials all over the UK on the 14th November (Remembrance Sunday) to remember all the men and women who lost their lives during the two World Wars and other conflicts.
As we all know, it is a custom to wear poppies in the weeks leading up to and on Remembrance Day, with the money raised from the sale of these poppies going towards providing help and support to serving and ex-service men and women and their dependants.
As well as the traditional paper poppies, you can also show your support to this fantastic cause by wearing other variations, such as these stunning poppies from Yarwood-White.
In recent years Yarwood-White has designed poppies worn by the judges and contestants on The X Factor, in honour of Remembrance Day, The Poppy Appeal and The Royal British Legion. After the huge popularity of the poppies they decided to sell them online, with £5 from every poppy sold donated to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
Each of the stunning satin ribbon poppies has a dark velvet centre piece and pressed glass bead centre. They would make a great accessory to a wedding day outfit, whether pinned to a lapel, bag or ponytail, or they can be worn on a bracelet as a wrist corsage, a style inspired by Dannii Minogue. Groomsmen could wear them as their buttonholes instead of a traditional flower.
Yarwood-White also offer a bespoke service, where you can customise your poppy into a one of a kind design.
