Prom Flower Etiquette


Prom flower selection is an opportunity to showcase your unique style and look your best on one of the most memorable moments in life.

When attending prom with a date, it is customary to give your date a corsage or boutonniere. Ladies traditionally wear a corsage. Gentlemen traditionally wear a boutonniere.

The keyword here is, “tradition.” It’s perfectly okay to break from traditions and dare to think of flowers as your unique fashion accessory. Consider a floral hairpiece or attach flowers to a dress sash to accentuate the waistline.

We also recommend bringing a fabric swatch or a good close-up photo of your attire, to match to the ribbon, so the colors do not clash.

Unless your date specifically asks for something different, we suggest the wrist corsage as a gown accessory, not only as the modern preference, but also to avoid potential damage to expensive designer dresses.

At Studley’s, you’ll visit our Prom Station to choose from select flowers, ribbons and embellishments to build your corsage or boutonniere. Prices for each selection are clearly marked, so you can keep track of your budget as you build.
