Prom is Saturday, May 17th, and while you may be busy planning the dinners and the after-prom activities, you want to make sure you also don’t forget the basics. There is simply nothing more embarrassing than forgetting to get your date a corsage. Here are a few prom corsage tips from your local Bellaire flower shop:
Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute
Waiting until the last minute can lead to disastrous results. Every year we get some poor senior rushing into our shop after realizing that they forget to order in advance of the day of prom. Make sure to order a corsage ahead of time so that you don’t run the risk of turning up empty handed!
A quality corsage is made of real blooms. While this makes them extra elegant, it also makes corsages particularly delicate. Avoid getting your corsage more than 2 days ahead of time or it will be withered by the time prom night comes around.
The best idea is to order it ahead of time at Elaine’s Florist and pick it up the day before prom. This way, you can guarantee that the corsage is fresh without adding any extra errands on the day of prom. Make sure to keep it refrigerated so that it holds its freshness.
Choosing the Right Corsage
So you’re ready to order, but wait! Which corsage should you go with? Wrist corsages are the more traditional choice for prom night. You also want to see if you can get a corsage that compliments your date’s outfit. Some dates are very open about what they are wearing and maybe even want to coordinate with you already. If so, you are in luck! You already know exactly what they are wearing and we can easily help you select a corsage that works well with her outfit.
If your date has not told you what she is wearing, we can also help you select more traditional, classic prom corsages that will give your date’s outfit an extra touch of elegance.
