Prom Season is Here in Atlanta

Coming up is prom season so this is the time to start planning for prom flowers, prom boutonnieres, and prom corsages. We have a wide selection of prom flowers to choose from, or you can create you own custom prom corsage and matching custom prom boutonniere. When you are getting ready to decide what type of prom flowers to get, consider the following factors: What color is your dress? You don’t want to pick the same color for your flowers because no one will be able to see it, especially if it’s pinned to your prom gown. Instead, go with a complementary color that adds to your look. What is your budget? There are a lot of costs with attending the prom, so make sure you set a reasonable budget for everything, including your flowers. What do you like? Don’t just go with what is trendy. Pick your favorite flower and make sure the style represents what you like, not what your friends like. This is a special moment in your life so make it about you. To give you an idea of what is possible for prom flowers, check out some examples from our prom flower collection: The Fashion [...]

Common Prom Flower Questions Every year, the big dilemma is should the corsage match the dress? The answer is not necessarily because it should really serve as an accent or complimentary color to the dress color. Since more corsages tend to be worn on the wrist than pinned on anymore, this helps create a nice contrast. You may also wonder what trends are prominent this year for prom flowers. The big trend continues to be ‘bling’ corsages that have rhinestones, pearls, and jewels as wristlet straps for the corsage. This can be [...]

It’s Prom Season! Time for Corsages and Boutonnieres!

It’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. 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.

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