Long Beach Prom Season is Here!

AFM7Tux? Check! Dress? Check! Limo? Check! Prom flowers? Oh no! Don’t worry, our Long Beach flower shop is here to help you find that perfect boutonniere and corsage combination from our existing prom flower collection or one that you custom create with our floral design team.

Many people just like you throughout Long Beach are getting ready for prom, which signals the end of your junior or senior year at a Long Beach area high school, and we want to make sure you make it memorable plus take all the hassle out of getting ready for it.AFM6

Common Prom Flower Questions

Here are some answers to some common prom flower questions that you may be asking and are not sure what the answer might be:

  • Should the corsage match the dress? It can but it really is better to pick a complimentary color so it stands out. The corsage and boutonniere, however, should match in terms of flower variety and color so everyone knows the two of you are a couple.
  • What are big prom flower trends this year? Prom wristlets with rhinestones, pearls, and jewels are very popular. Also in demand are flowers for the hair, especially if you are opting to wear your hair up for the big dance.
  • Who orders and pays for the corsage? Traditionally, it was always that the man got the corsage and the woman bought the boutonniere, but it is typically something where everyone goes together or Mom is just put in charge of the ordering and the paying part.AFM10

Custom Prom Corsages and Boutonnieres

If you don’t like the selection of prom corsages and boutonnieres we have displayed online or in our Long Beach flower shop, then you can come in and work directly with our floral design team. You can even bring in your dress to make sure the style and color are the right combination for this memorable dance.AFM3

We make prom flowers the easiest part of the prom preparation. That’s because we can hand deliver your prom corsage and boutonniere straight to your door on the day of prom. That saves one of many errands that you will make that day and will guarantee you the freshest flowers.
