april7c1It’s that time of year again for the big high school dance. With that comes picking out dresses, tuxes, and limos not to mention corsages and boutonnieres. This may be a first for many high school students in terms of picking out flowers to wear or to give to their prom dates.april7c5

This blog post offers some prom flower advice while also showcasing some of our latest corsage and boutonnieres that reflect this season’s trends.

Prom Flower Advice

Many students and their parents want to know the basics about corsages and boutonnieres. For example, there are trends each year that change the look of a corsage. This includes the ongoing trend of “blinging” out a corsage with rhinestones, pearls, and jewels featured on our jewelry wristlet corsages.

Every year, the fashion debate continues on whether the corsage should match the dress or not.

The answer is that the corsage is not necessarily designed to match the dress but to actually compliment or accent the dress color, so it is actually best to choose a color that coordinates rather than matches.april7c4

It is no longer the trend to have the guy order the corsage and the girl order the boutonniere. Now, everyone is involved in the prom flower ordering process and it usually all happens at once.

Corsage and Boutonniere Options

We have an extensive collection of corsages and boutonnieres to choose from with a price range that provides a way to fit your budget for the big dance. This includes a range of flower choices, including orchids, roses, hydrangea and calla lily. These are arranged with greenery and other accents to make them really stand out on a wrist or pinned on a dress or tuxedo.april7c3
