After the dress, your date’s floral corsage is one of the most important elements of her prom night attire. An elegant corsage should be just the right size and compliment the color and style of her dress. Read this guide for choosing the perfect corsage so your date will feel like the prettiest girl at prom:
- Ask Questions: Find out what color and style your date’s prom dress will be. If possible, get a picture of the dress or a sample of the fabric to take to your florist. By doing so, you can be sure you’re getting flowers and ribbon that match the dress perfectly.
- Discover Her Tastes: Some girls love roses while other girls prefer carnations or more exotic flowers. Prom flowers are not limited to the traditional sweetheart roses. You can get corsages with orchids, daisies, alstromeria, and even hydrangeas. Ask your date what her favorite flower is, and then talk to your florist about incorporating that flower in an appropriate color.
- Order Early: Certain flowers are in high demand at prom time and others must be special ordered. Speaking with your florist a couple weeks ahead of time will ensure you get exactly what you want.
- Add Some Glitz: Ask your florist about pearls, beads, crystals, or rhinestones that can be added to your corsage. These accents give the flowers an extra special touch and add an element of elegance to your date’s ensemble.
If your prom date wants to surprise you with her dress, you can still order a stunning corsage. White or cream-colored flowers will go well with almost any dress, as will sheer iridescent ribbon.
