The junior and senior high school prom is one of those magical moments that you will remember the rest of your life, so it’s important that every detail be planned out so it can be as perfect as you imagine it will be! That includes everything from the dress and tuxedo to hair, makeup, and jewelry (and shoes!) to the limo to, of course, the prom flowers, including the corsage and boutonniere.
Since you may never have picked out prom flowers before, we are here to help with some advice and answers to commonly asked prom flower questions.
Answering Your Prom Flower Questions
- Should the corsage match my dress? It’s up to you but let us suggest that you either create or select a prom corsage that features your dress color as part of the color combination or you select a completely different color that complements the dress style and color.
- What are big prom flower trends this year? Not many pinned on prom corsages are requested as most dresses tend to be strapless. Instead, the hot trend are prom corsage wristlets that feature a bracelet with rhinestones or other embellishments. We also get requests for arm band corsages as well as flowers for the hair, especially if you plan on putting your hair in an up-do.
- Who orders and pays for the corsage? Traditionally, your date has always picked out and purchased your corsage. Then, you return the favor by getting his boutonniere and exchange these on the night of the dance. However, today, it is typically purchased by Mom while you and your date come along to pick it out or your date just entrusts you with both.
- What should I order prom flowers? You should place your order soon after you know you have a date so it’s taken care of and ready for pick-up on the day of the dance. We typically get a high volume of orders and you want to make sure that you can get the flower variety and color you want as well as ensure it’s ready when you are!
