All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered! What is a prom corsage? A prom corsage is a small floral arrangement to be worn on a female’s wrist or collar. The prom corsage is typically purchased and given to her by her prom date. The wrist corsage is the most common kind, and is typically chosen to match the prom dress. What is a boutonniere? A boutonniere is a floral design worn by a male on the lapel of a suit or tux. The boutonniere is typically bought for him by his prom date and is chosen to match the prom corsage. What wrist is the corsage worn on? Proper etiquette calls for the corsage to be worn on the left wrist, unless the person wearing it is left-handed. If left-handed, the corsage can be worn on the right wrist. Do the corsage and boutonniere have to match? It is not a rule that they match, however the couple will look more put together if they do. The boutonniere gives a touch of color to match the male to his prom date though

Flowers for Your Guests

This past weekend we were honored to create floral designs for a wedding reception at the Princeton Marriott. In addition to gorgeous centerpieces, each female guest received an orchid wristlet corsage and each gentleman received a boutonniere. What a lovely thing to do for your guests - so festive, don't you think? We know that most folks couldn't afford to do this but we sure enjoyed making all these lovely wearable flowers!
