With prom right around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about flowers. On the evening of this formal dance, it’s tradition to give your date a wearable flower. For girls, a corsage, which is a small floral arrangement that can be worn around the wrist or pinned to the dress, is customary. For boys, a boutonniere, or a pinned flower attached to the tuxedo lapel, is tradition. As you plan for the big night, here are a few recommendations to ensure these special occasion flowers are perfect.

3 Tips for Ordering Prom Flowers

1. Consider the Wardrobe

With an abundance of flowers in various colors and shapes to choose from, knowing your date’s wardrobe is critical. Consider the dress, suit and tie, and overall image you and your date want to create. From there, you can work with a florist to create the perfect accompaniments for both of you.

2. Order Early

FlowersProm can be a busy time of year for floral companies. To ensure you get the flowers and design you envision without any stress or anxiety, place your order early. By talking through the design and ordering your corsage or boutonniere a few weeks in advance, you can focus on hair, makeup, and getting ready on the big day. Plus, your florist will have time to special order any unique blooms you have your eye on.

3. Get Creative

Corsages and boutonnieres can be keepsake items you hold onto well after the dance ends. Don’t be afraid to get creative when it comes to choosing the blooms. You and your florist can use your imaginations to create one-of-a-kind arrangements. If a classic corsage or boutonniere isn’t your style, try an open-ended maile lei for a beautiful, eye-catching island feel.
