Prom season is here. That means that it is also time for prom flowers. Prom flowers are traditional and many couples choose to purchase boutonnieres and corsages for one another. Others opt for bouquets or take an entirely different route altogether. For example, if you plan on attending prom with a group of gals, you may all want to consider prom corsage delivery. Additionally, if you and your date are both looking at menswear, you’d opt in for boutonnieres. Don’t expect to visit a florist the day of your prom and get what you are looking for. It is wise to plan ahead and arrive to pick it up the morning of the dance to ensure maximum freshness.
Prom Flower Trends
Bouquets are obviously not the go-to for prom night, but that doesn’t mean you have to remain traditional. If you do decide to go this route, make sure that you allow ample time to order, and choose a color scheme that complements the outfit of your partner. It’s unlikely that you’d want to bring a bouquet to the prom and hold it the entire night. Bouquets are perfect to take pictures with and they can also be left in a vase of water to help keep them alive a little longer. If you do plan on taking pictures with flowers, be careful that you choose something in neutral shades or something that goes well with your color scheme. Bouquets can range in price from $20 to $100.
A single flower that is attached to a man’s lapel expresses simplicity. This is exactly what prom boutonnieres do. You can choose a streamlined design and a single flower. It is also typical for the boutonniere to match the corsage’s flower and color selection. The best way to ensure this happens is to order them at the same time. Prom boutonniere delivery is not expensive and prices alone can run much cheaper than corsages. The boutonniere should also match the color of your date’s tie, cumberbund, or vest. If you are not sure what to choose, a carnation or single white rose is always complementary and classy.
Corsages are typically worn by women on their wrists or dress. There are vast options when it comes to choosing the right corsage. They can also be worn anywhere, including at the waist, in the hair, and other places. When choosing the perfect corsage, make sure that you try to ask what type of corsage your date would prefer. For example, if you are wearing a dress with thin straps or no straps, you may want to choose a corsage you can wear on your wrist so it doesn’t weigh down your dress. Make sure you do your best when it comes to choosing an arrangement that will go well with your date’s attire. This could mean choosing an exact match or an accent color.
