The tradition of wearing flowers to the prom is an old one. It first developed when it was not as common to take regular showers or to wear a perfume product. Today, wearing flowers to a significant event like the prom is more a custom than anything, but it is a lot of fun—especially if you put time and effort into choosing just the right corsage for a lady and boutonniere for a gentleman. Here are a few suggestions for choosing the perfect flower this prom season.
- Try to match the flowers to the dress or tuxedo of the person who will be wearing it. While you may not want to match the colors exactly, find something that will coincide nicely. Carnations, for instance, come in many different colors, making them an obvious choice.
- If you do not know what the person you will be taking to the dance will be wearing, consider choosing white. White goes with nearly everything. A white orchid corsage or boutonniere is one of the safest choices you can make.
- If you are buying a corsage for a young lady, ask if she wants one you can pin on the dress or if she would prefer a wrist corsage. Both have benefits and drawbacks, and it is best to be prepared.
- Many florists can make nearly any flower into a simple pin-on corsage or boutonniere. If you want something exotic or bold, ask if there are any possibilities for creating these from tropical or exotic flowers.
