Having started as formal dances to instil social etiquette into the colleges of America, prom nights have recently become equally popular in UK schools too. Arguably one of the most important nights in a teenagers’ social calendar, prom celebrates the end of term, exams and ultimately your school days. It is the perfect occasion to get dressed up to the nines, let down your hair and party with your friends.
In true prom night tradition it is customary for female attendees to wear a corsage to complement their dress. From classic rose wrist corsages to those which feature exquisite orchids or funky gerberas, a colourful corsage is a wonderful way to add a special finishing touch to your prom ensemble. And, if you take care of your corsage throughout the night, you can later dry out the flowers to make an ever-lasting keepsake of your special day.
At Interflora, we offer a range of stunning corsages, which can be ordered online and delivered directly to your home. So whether your dress is simple and chic, bright and beautiful or dramatic and daring, we’ve got a fantastic selection of corsages to complement every outfit. Here’s our top three:
