It’s that time once again; spring break is in the books and summer vacation is coming into sight, but who can think about summer when you’re busy planning your prom?
With so many choices to make for prom – from choosing the perfect dress to finding the right shoes, jewelry, and makeup – it’s not always easy to keep up with the latest styles and hottest trends that will have you looking incredible on this magical night.
But that’s not all!
Once the other tasks are completed and plans are made, you’re almost set for the big party, but don’t walk out the door and duck into the limo until you add the quintessential finishing touch – we’re talking about the flowers!
No prom dress is complete without a stunning corsage, and jacket lapels are way too plain without an eye-catching boutonniere. As they say, it’s all in the details!
What do I need, where do I find it?
With so many other important decisions to be made leading up to prom, the choices can sometimes be overwhelming and finding the right flowers to complement your dress or tux can leave your head spinning. Never fear! Like many of the other big decisions you make for prom night, choosing the perfect corsage or boutonniere is simply a matter of personal preference and should reflect your style and taste.
Fortunately, your friendly florists at George Thomas Florist are experts at customization and have a keen eye to help take your look from stunning to perfection with the perfect floral accents.
What are my options?
The choices are nearly endless when it comes to deciding which flowers are right for you, but we have plenty of experience and are happy to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. All we need to know are your colors and what kind of corsage you have in mind and we can take it from there.
Although it has become a popular trend to match the corsage with the boutonniere, it certainly isn’t necessary – besides, it’s your prom, do what you want! But if you do decide to color coordinate, or if you have some specific flowers in mind, feel free to bring your date in with you and pick them out together.
It is often said that good things come to those who wait, but that isn’t always the case, especially when it comes to prom flowers. Since prom also falls during the height of wedding season and is near Mother’s Day, this is a very busy time of year in the floral industry.
Although the flowers may be the finishing touch to that perfect prom outfit, don’t wait until the last minute to pick out your flowers. Shopping early always provides you with a better selection and allows you more personal attention from our florists. We want you to look fabulous on your special night because it’s one you’ll never forget!
