FAQs:

What do I need to know in order to order a corsage/boutonniere?

  1. Find out the color of your date's attire (dress or tie)

  3. Browse our selection of our custom corsage designs or browse our online portfolio.
  4. Come visit us in the shop, place a call, or contact us on FB/IG messenger to place your order!

Tip: We suggest ordering the corsage and boutonniere at the same time to ensure the two orders match (if that's your preference). Unfortunately, due to the high volume of orders we receive during homecoming and prom season, it becomes difficult to pull individual orders.

Is the guy suppose to purchase both the corsage and boutonniere for a dance?

Traditionally, the corsage is purchased by the guy and the boutonniere is purchased by the girl. The boutonniere and corsage commonly match, but don't stress if they don't. The distinctive flowers can create a unique variation that will create a one of a kind and harmonious look. The key is to color coordinate them. Accessories and upgrades are available to make your orders more unique!
