Prom night is an unforgettable occasion, filled with excitement, glamour, and the promise of lasting memories. One of the most cherished traditions is exchanging corsages and boutonnieres, a symbol of affection and appreciation.
However, before you dive into the world of prom flowers, it’s essential to understand the etiquette surrounding this delightful tradition. In this blog, we’ll explore the dos and don’ts of prom flower etiquette and feature some exquisite blooms from Calabasas Blooms to make your prom night truly special.
1. Coordinate with Your Date
Before placing your order, it’s crucial to coordinate with your prom date. Traditionally, the corsage and boutonniere should complement each other. Discuss color schemes, styles, and preferences with your date to ensure a harmonious look. You can also ask your date about any flower allergies to avoid potential discomfort.
For a timeless and elegant choice, consider the “Celeste” arrangement from Calabasas Blooms. Featuring dazzling blue anemones, purplish pink stock, snowy white, and green snow pea, this arrangement is a perfect match for any prom attire. Its classic yet captivating design will make you and your date stand out on prom night.
2. Corsage Placement
For girls, corsages are traditionally worn on the left wrist. However, some may prefer to wear them on the right wrist or even attach them to their dress. Communicate your preference with your date to ensure the corsage is placed correctly.
3. Boutonniere Placement
Boutonnieres are typically worn on the left lapel of the tuxedo or suit jacket. Ensure that your date knows where to pin it and provide a straight pin if necessary.
The “Elegant White Ivory” arrangement is a perfect choice for a classic boutonniere. With fresh anemones, freesia, ranunculus, hydrangeas, and waxflowers, it exudes sophistication and pairs beautifully with any tuxedo or suit.
4. Consider the Dress and Tuxedo Colors
To create a harmonious look, choose flowers that complement the colors of your dress and tuxedo. If your attire is neutral, you have more flexibility in selecting corsage and boutonniere colors. However, if your outfit is vibrant and colorful, opt for more subtle floral shades.
5. Communicate with Your Florist
When ordering prom flowers, it’s essential to communicate your preferences and any specific requests with your florist. They can help you choose the perfect flowers and style to match your prom attire and theme. Don’t forget to specify the delivery date and time to ensure your corsage and boutonniere arrive in pristine condition.
For a touch of romance and elegance, the “Pretty Pink Peonies” arrangement is an excellent choice for a prom corsage. The soft pink peonies and delicate baby pink dogwood flowers add a graceful and feminine touch to your prom ensemble.
Prom is a night to remember, and choosing the right corsage and boutonniere is an essential part of the experience.
