A corsage is a small nosegay or cluster of flowers wired together to form a shoulder spray to be worn on a ladies dress or jacket.
For weddings, school balls and other formal occasions, a corsage can be either chosen that can be pinned on the dress or lapel as shown on this page or you may like to choose a popular wrist corsage which is worn on the wrist. Certainly popular for School Balls, a wrist corsage is also becoming more popular for the Mother-of-the-Bride, as it withstands all the hugs given out on the wedding day.It is best to ask the mothers and grandmothers how they'd prefer to wear their corsage before ordering it.
A corsage can include flowers from the bride's bouquet or the favorite flowers of the wearer - my personal favourite is the classic imported Singapore Orchid, as it is a hardy flower and easily survives all day out of water. Traditionally, the corsage should complement the outfit of each individual - you don't want to pin a red corsage to a yellow dress! If you want to feature just one flower at your wedding then you can have all corsage made using that flower. If you want a planned and simple look for your wedding photos and to provide a symbol of unity between the two joined families, why not co-ordinate all your corsages and buttonholes? You could choose a white or ivory rose as this would compliment most outfits and would look stunning if you are carrying white roses yourself.
