Modern Corsage Inspiration

A corsage is a small arrangement of flowers, which are typically worn on a woman’s wrist or her clothing. Corsages have been a tradition for the longest time but as time goes on trends evolve. As fashion trends progressed, women started to wear the corsage tied around wrist rather than pinned. Corsages are typically worn for special events such as weddings. The bride/groom’s mothers, grandmothers and other special family members are the ones who wear corsages.

If you’ve scrolled through Pinterest lately, then you might have noticed photos of large corsages. These corsages are typically used when the bride is substituting her bouquet with a corsage. They often include flowers like peonies, garden roses, and other large blooms. Regardless of the size, additional enhancements such as beading, ribbon, and gems are a common theme.

Typically, a corsage will include a focal flower (or two),  accent flowers, and fillers. When deciding on which flowers to use, we recommend using hearty flowers which can withstand the weather conditions without wilting. Some of these long-lasting flowers include orchids, roses (both standard and spray), carnations, mini calla lily, daisies, and poms! Oh, and don’t forget about greenery!
