Traditionally, corsages were pinned to the bodice of a dress. Many contemporary prom-goers prefer a wrist corsage, which consists of flowers arranged on a decorative bracelet or band, Fastening the flowers to a shoulder strap or even a waistband is still an option, however, and the final choice often relies on the style of dress.
Did You Know? The first floral corsages were worn in ancient times to ward off evil spirits and deadly diseases. Corsages (and boutonnieres) often utilized herbs as well, as they were thought to have similar protective properties.
