A classic staple at any wedding to accent and unify the couple, prom, or formal dance, corsages & boutonnieres are a beautiful and tasteful keepsake of the big day. I source locally-grown quality flowers, design and hand deliver corsages & boutonnieres with utmost care to make sure you look your best on your special day!
Nothing adds panache to a man’s appearance like the confidence embodied in wearing a stylish boutonniere. A simple flower worn on the lapel of a jacket is a gesture full of meaning that extends beyond the flower. Boutonnieres are a symbol of fragile life, of beauty in nature, of love undefined yet captured in a single bloom. The groom and his groomsmen use this technique nowadays to demonstrate their ties to the bride and bridal party.
Corsages Are Beautiful
One of my favorite things to make are corsages. They come in so many shapes, colors, and occasions. Corsages are worn for weddings, proms, formal events, Mother’s Day, holidays, semi-formal occasions, memorials, graduations and any occasion that is significant. They identify people in a group, show a person’s convictions, honor someone and compliment the attire as a fashion accessory. At Alysia Marie Floral, I source locally-grown flowers, leaves and ferns to make event specific corsages.
Whatever the event, the corsage adds a special touch.
Some of the most beautiful corsages are ones for family. Family members who commonly have on a corsage at a marriage ceremony are the mothers of the bride and groom, the grandmothers, as well as other beloved family members.
Special Event Corsages & Boutonnieres
At graduations, faculty members wear corsages to identify themselves. The corsages are usually symbolic of the class theme or motto. The Mother’s Day Corsage or Boutonniere is usually an orchid, which represents love, beauty and strength given to the mother to express respect. Corsages & Boutonnieres are worn to honor people, such as recipients of awards, or for other special occasions. Groups often wear corsages to symbolize patriotism, a memorial, awareness or their convictions to a cause. The flowers chosen are often symbolic to the cause as well as the ribbons used to decorate the corsage.
The corsage is a remembrance of the occasion. The corsage is designed not only to match attire, but also to match the personality of the wearer. Giving a corsage tells the recipient she is important. We take the time to find out what a person’s favorite flower is, what she is wearing, and how you want to honor her, making sure your special day is unforgettable.
