What Flowers to Choose For Your Prom Corsage

Prom night is a highly celebrated event for high school students in the United States. This special evening typically occurs towards the end of high school junior or senior year. For females, it is customary adorn themselves in prom corsages, which accompanies the elegant prom dress. Males traditionally wear boutonnieres to complement their tuxedo or formal suit.

Prom corsages are available in several artistic styles as well as sizes. Some are simply decorated and defined by a single flower, while others are more complex. Complex styles typically consist of multiple flowers ornamented on a corsage. When selecting the perfect corsage, it is important to understand what flowers you need, and how complex you need the corsage to be. Visiting Billy Heroman’s can be beneficial, as we offer a wide variety of corsages to choose from in order to make prom night even more special.

Different flowers and colors bear distinctive meanings. The following are some tips to guide you through the process of choosing the ideal corsage for that special prom moment.

Love Colors

Red and pink are considered ‘love’ colors. These two colors symbolize affection and intimacy, thus giving your partner pink or red corsage creates the impression and ambiance of love and romance.

You can give your prom date white roses blended with deep red roses to show her that your feelings are not only pure, but also intense. This blend is considered a perfect choice for two people who have strong feelings for one another.

Friendship

Yellow symbolizes friendship. Corsages veneered with yellow roses are most suitable for two people attending the prom as friends. An alternative to yellow roses would be alstroemerias. This small star-looking plant has a long cylinder stem with gray and green leaves making it an attractive placement for any kind of setting.

For the Girls

Freesias flowers are a common corsage selection. This flower symbolizes trust and innocence. It has a pure sweet scent and is available in variety of colors; yellow, pink, white, mauve, orange, lavender and red. Freesias flowers are distinct thanks to their sword-like leaves and trumpet-shaped flowers.

Relevance is imperative when it comes to the flowers you select for your prom celebration. It is important to send the right message to your date. After all, your prom night is an evening you are likely to remember for the remainder of your life.
