Boutonnieres are similar to the corsage in color and style and are worn by the male date. While the color and flower of the boutonniere usually matches the corsage, the boutonniere is much more simple and usually only has one or two flowers. They are pinned to his jacket’s left lapel just above the heart with the stem facing down and flower facing up. They should be ordered and picked up at the same time as the corsage.
It’s always a good idea to talk to your florist about your boutonniere and corsage. Be sure to come by Marvel's Florist this prom season to visit our corsage bar, where you can hands-on design your own unique corsage and boutonniere.
