Corsage and Boutonnieres

Corsage Etiquette: The corsage is an important part of prom/homecoming. It is a small flower arrangement that is either pinned on a girl's dress, attached to her wrist or a small bouquet that is held in her hand. Normally the girl's date, if she has one, purchases the corsage and presents it to her when he picks her up. However, in recent years girls have begun buying their own corsages. If she is going to the dance with a group of friends, or just wants to be sure she gets the perfect corsage, she can purchase her own. The corsage, no matter the style, is created to match the color of the girl's dress. If you are a teen guy buying his date a corsage, be sure you pick a color that won't clash with her dress.
