Memorial Day!!


Christina Marie Events & Floral wishes to thank the brave men and women of the Armed Forces, and remember those who have lost their lives defending liberty. God bless you and your families
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!

Being a military wife is it very important to me to recognize past and present soldiers in all branches of the military. It is especially important to remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice that preserves the freedom we enjoy today. We will never forget the price that has been paid.

If you have a family member or friend that has lost their life in combat a way to honor them on your wedding day is by using red poppies. You can add them to bouquets, use as boutonnieres, do as the memorial vase or hang off an open chair in honor of the person that could not be there. Enjoy the pictures below from military weddings, these weddings are so moving and powerful to be a part of!!

History & meaning behind the Red Poppies (Wikipedia)
In the United States, it is common practice to wear "Buddy (Red) Poppies" (artificial, paper or plastic versions distributed by the Veterans of Foreign War) during the weeks preceding Memorial Day, the last Monday in May to commemorate the sacrifice of veterans in the various wars.
