The Best Flowers to Give on Prom Night

Probably the most important event of high school for teenage girls (and boys) is prom night. This special occasion offers an opportunity to indulge in romantic flowers, stunning hairstyles, and chic fashions. There are virtually endless blossoms available to suit individual tastes, but there is a certain process to find the right flowers for prom night.

Ask about the Dress

It’s important for guys to ask their prom date about their dress and their preferences. Asking about the types of flowers your date prefers, as well as the color and style of the dress they are wearing can help in selecting the right flowers for the corsage. It might even be a good idea for the prom date to snap a picture of the dress or show you the hue of her dress because it has to complement it perfectly.

Corsage Preference

While most prom dates prefer a wrist corsage, you will still need to ask in case she prefers a pin-on.

Head to the Florist

At least two weeks before prom night is the best time to see us, that way you can ensure you’ll have the corsage and boutonniere on time. Also, you can ask us for tips, flowers that are trending, or blooms that fit the season and your prom date’s dress. Because they complement many dress styles, smell wonderfully, and come in a wide array of colors, roses are probably the most traditional and popular choices for prom. Plus, you can truly impress your date.

However, for a more exotic selection that still offers variety for the perfect match, orchids are equally popular. Other options that fill out a corsage well and can be as eye-catching as roses include freesia, calla lilies, carnations, and baby’s breath. Of course, you need to take into account your budget, and some of the latter options tend to be more budget-friendly. Additionally, we will help in choosing the best ribbon for the corsage, should that be the route your date chooses.

Prom Day

To maintain its freshness, corsages should be picked up on prom day. When you arrive at your date’s home, offer to place the corsage on her wrist (left wrist for right-handed people and vice-versa). If it’s a pin-on, help from mom is OK.
