You found THE dress. The tux has been selected & rented to coordinate with THE dress. Now what??? You order your prom flowers from White House Florist, of course!!
Typically, the guy buys the corsage for the girl and the girls buys the boutonniere for the guy. However, we have lots of people who purchase both so however you choose to do it is fine. The main thing is to make sure that they coordinate if possible! This is made easier when both the corsage and boutonniere are ordered from our shop.
For the last several years ALL of our corsages have been made to wear on the wrist. This trend began when girls started wearing strapless dresses and now it is the most popular choice. Although, I have seen girls wear them on their ankles or on their upper arms. It’s whatever you are most comfortable with!
There are so many options these days as far as the wrist bracelet. They are made like jewelry now and coordinate with THE dress as more of an accessory. We have “Crystal” wristlets and “Pearl” wristlets with many ribbon colors to choose from.
For us to be able to make the best suggestions, we need to know the color of the dress AND either see the dress in person or get a swatch of the material. This allows us to get an idea of the “style” of the dress and make appropriate recommendations. Our most popular flower choices are miniature roses and orchids and they come in a variety of color options. As always, if you have something else in mind for the corsage, we would be happy to accommodate any special requests. Please note, we need 3-4 weeks advance notice to guarantee special orders.
All corsages and boutonnieres are made fresh and are available for pick-up the day of your prom. We ask that all orders be pre-paid no later than a week prior.
So, the first step is to stop by our shop and pick out the bracelet and then the flowers based on the color and style of the dress. Then the boutonniere can be ordered to coordinate with the corsage order. Then, be sure to take a picture the day of prom and upload to our facebook page! We hope this information has been helpful. If you have any other questions, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!
