CORSAGES

Traditionally corsages were worn by women and pinned onto the dress. Today, corsages can be worn on the wrist, in a woman's hair, on her hand bag, or her waist band or even on her hat. There are a lot of options available. Any corsage worn on the body is always on the left side.

Men traditionally wear boutonnieres. Boutonnieres, like corsages should always be worn on the left lapel, pinned to the button hole, with the flowers pointing up.

The most popular place for the ladies to wear a corsage is on their wrist. It is a very pretty and, believe it or not, functional way to wear her flowers.  A wrist corsage will also avoid the moment of, "How & Where do I pin this on?" Many fathers of young girls appreciate the wrist corsage

For the Wedding Party

Bridesmaids wear their corsages on their left wrist. If that is not possible, make sure that they are worn the same way on everyone.  Normally, whether in the form of a bouquet or a corsage, the bridesmaids flowers compliment the flowers in the bridal bouquet.

Dances

Whether it's the prom, the harvest dance or the local Debutante ball, the rules for corsages are basically the same. The young man, preferably two weeks before the event, will ask his date the colors she plans on wearing so he can place his order for her corsage. This is the time to also ask her what type of corsage she prefers. When you do place your order with us, we will go over price, size of the corsage and type of flowers that you or your date might want.

To the left is a wrist corsage made with pink and red variegated roses with baby's breath and tree ferns.

The corsage on the right was created around the ribbon that the customer brought in. Our designer used an orchid bloom, several alstroemeria and variegated greenery to create an elegant but whimsical corsage.

We are often called upon to design around keepsakes and collectibles.
