Prom Definitions and Clarifications

A prom bouquet is a personal selection of pairing flowers to attire

 
 

The most important aspect of any prom is the photos that are taken the night of the event. Hair, make-up, accessories, dress appearance, and flowers must be in prime condition for that freeze frame capture that will be forever as a timeless record of that evening.

In many proms, girls won’t eat, won’t drink or risk any damage to their appearance, dress, or make up until AFTER the photos are taken. The prom actually begins right after the photo shoot.


Wrist Corsage vs. Prom Bouquets

While a bouquet can encompass the mood or feel of the girl’s dress, and accessories, a wrist corsage has limitations. Size is an important factor. Most petite girls cannot sport a huge wrist corsage. Flower choices must be sturdy and lasting the entire evening. Remember this is a corsage, mostly orchids, some roses, and other flowers can create a desired look. For the most part a wrist corsage is made small and therefore being difficult to see in a photograph.  One must remember that the prom is all about the photos. The prom bouquet stands out as the most focal point of any photo shot. A wrist corsage cannot compare with the impact that a prom bouquet has. We can create something unique and individualized in a bouquet, we can just touch the mood with a wrist corsage.

We recommend a prom bouquet for Senior proms at least.
