Although a corsage was originally worn on the bodice of a dress an everyday attempt to ward off evil spirits and still is often pinned to the gown, young ladies are always looking for new ways to incorporate flowers into their look. Wrist corsages are the most popular wearable flowers at proms and dances, but less traditional florals are also desired for unique and personal expressions. These include floral crowns, floral bracelets, custom floral hairpieces. floral rings, and even floral decorations to attach to shoes.
Orchids, roses, and carnations are the most often seen in corsages, but calla lilies, succulents, and organic elements such as berries are also popular. Ribbons, jewelry, feathers, and sequins are also great ways to add interest and color. The word boutonniere is of French origin (as is corsage) and means little button, referring to the custom of placing the single flower into a buttonhole of a suit. Boutonniere, like all wearable flowers, can be traditional or trendy, and easily matched to the other flowers in the ensemble. Looking for something a little different?
