How Much Do They Cost And Who Pays?
Normally, it would be your male date that is expected to buy your corsage.  However, as it is important that your corsage matches nicely with your prom dress, you should at least offer help in choosing the one you want.  The general rule of thumb when it comes to cost is that you can expect it to cost around 10% of the dress’s price.

What Type or Color Of Corsage Should I Get?
Corsages come in various styles, however the important thing is that the color matches or contrasts the color of your dress.  The choice of color is only a small part when it comes to picking the right one though.  For starters, you need to decide how you are going to wear it and choose whether you want it to be on a pin or ribbon.  Secondly and rather obviously, you need to choose your flower.  But, after you have chosen your flower; pin, ribbon or bracelet, you then have the option to choose from a wide selection of accessories including bows, feathers, small sprays of flowers and many more.  The choice is limitless and up to you?

When Should You Buy It?
As has already been mentioned above, you need to make sure you have picked your dress out before you begin looking for your corsage.  Although you don’t need to arrange it months in advance, it is a good idea to get it done early.  You will pick it up on the day of the prom because it is a live flower arrangement and you want it to be as fresh as possible.
