“What color flower goes best with my dress?”

This season, wristlets and handtieds are the most popular style for prom.
Handtieds, or handheld bouquets, are a classic way to add elegance to any dress while creating a timeless style for your prom. Wristlets, or wrist corsages, may be ordered to fit small wrists as well!
Spray roses in a classic wrist corsage can compliment the dress itself in a simple yet timeless way. Although, spray roses may be too plain for some prom-goers. If this is the case, cymbidium orchids (in either green, pink, or white) are a unique alternative for any wristlet style – as are dendrobium and phalaenopsis orchids (all three varieties are pictured below).
However, if you are looking for something to accessorize with your dress, handtieds have a fuller look and tend to add a larger focal point to your pictures. Handtied bouquets come in multiple styles, including front held/short stemmed, side arm/ long stemmed, and front held/long stemmed. Of course, the possibilities are endless – just give us a call!
Most flowers work very well with handtieds, and come in medium (cantelope size) or large (honeydew size).
And of course, don’t forget to order flowers for him!
