Boutonniere and Corsage Tip

June 17, 2022

Corsage Overview

Boutonnieres and corsages are staples at proms, weddings, and graduations. But outside of those events, they aren't frequent florals in today's society, at least not compared to traditional bouquets. For this reason, there can be a lot of questions surrounding them.


Questions like, where should I buy? How should I put it on? Why do we wear them at all? James Cress Florist will walk you through the answers to these questions. We've got you covered, from which side of the jacket to pin a boutonniere to how to buy a corsage and where to store it. When it comes to school dances, girls usually spend a lot of time getting together the perfect outfit. Her dress, jewelry, shoes, makeup, and hairdo were probably picked out well before the big night. Imagine showing up to see your date looks stunning only to hand her a corsage that doesn't match her dress or style. If you want to impress your date and her family, knowing how to pick a corsage is an easy way to do it.


Maybe you're thinking a corsage is just a flower. It's so unimportant. I really want to impress my date. I want to wow her with something big because I really like her. If that's the case, you should consider the small details. Romance is in the details, after all! Think about the things your date likes and her personality, and try to pick a corsage to match. It's an inexpensive and memorable way to tell her you care. So, where to start? Start with the easy part–picking out the corsage colors. James Cress Florist can help you with this decision either stop by or place an order online, and we will see you for pick up!JamesCressFlorist.com/shop/corsages
