Is prom in your future? As you pick your outfits and date, don’t forget the flowers. No prom outfit is complete without wearable flowers. Here are the options you will want to consider to complete your ensemble.
The Wrist Corsage
The wrist corsage is a common choice for a girl who is heading to prom. Because many dresses do not have straps or sleeves, a wrist corsage is easy to wear and adds a little bit of interest to the overall outfit. Guys who take a girl to prom will often buy a wrist corsage that complements her outfit.
The Pinned Corsage
While less common, the pinned corsage is still an option for prom. It’s important for guys who are considering this option to learn the style of the girl’s dress. If the dress is very low cut or strapless, a pined corsage can be embarrassing to pin in place, or impossible to wear. However, a dress that has straps or sleeves can look lovely with a corsage pinned to the bodice.
Guys who are headed to prom will typically wear a boutonniere on their lapels or pinned to their shirts near the breast pocket. This is typically an arrangement made with one or two blooms that match the girl’s corsage, and some foliage or baby’s breath. Often the corsage and boutonniere will be purchased at the same time.
Which Flowers to Pick
The choice of flowers really depends on the color of the outfits and the taste of the couple. It’s hard to go wrong with roses, and red is always an excellent choice. The Perfect Pair is a red wrist corsage paired with a red boutonniere that can be delivered to your date’s door.
If you want something more exotic, consider lilies or orchids. Both can be made into beautiful wristlets that will make a stunning impression at the prom. The Purple Orchid Wristlet is a beautiful and stunning piece that will draw all the right attention to your date.
