The season for important occasions is fast approaching: weddings, proms, graduations… For many such events it’s traditional to wear a corsage or a boutonniere, but… do you know how this tradition started?
Corsages are basically a type of bracelet that are usually worn by women at special celebrations such as prom or a wedding, among others.
Would you like to buy a corsage? At Verdissimo, the biggest producer of preserved plants and flowers worldwide, we’ve got a wide variety of corsages with roses. In today’s article, we’re going to tell you all about them:
- Dark Pink Rose Corsage: a corsage consisting of vibrantly colored pink roses combined with a white bow.
- Lavender Rose Corsage Lavender: a corsage composed of lilac-colored roses combined with a white bow. This is a soft color that goes well with pink, beige, and purple.
- Light Pink Rose Corsage: a corsage made of pink roses of a very soft, light tone. This bracelet goes perfectly with a wide range of different looks.
- Porcelain Rose Corsage: this is another one of our preserved corsages that’s ideal for any ceremony. It’s warm tones make it the preferred bracelet for those with more classical tastes.
- Red Rose Corsage: consisting of red roses, the most eye-catching flower of any garden. The color of this corsage reflects a lot of passion, so if you’re thinking of giving the gift of a corsage to someone special, this might be a good option.
- White Rose Corsage: this is another one of our traditional corsages. Since it’s white, it goes perfectly with all sorts of styles. It symbolizes purity.
Boutonnieres have the same purpose as corsages. A boutonniere can be an important accessory for an attendee at a formal event, the only difference being that boutonnieres are for men.
At Verdissimo our boutonnieres come in the same varieties as the corsages, but we’ll list them again here for your convenience:
- Dark Pink Rose Boutonniere
- Lavender Rose Boutonniere
- Light Pink Rose Boutonniere
- Porcelain Rose Boutonniere
- Red Rose Boutonniere
- White Rose Boutonniere
The shape of a boutonniere is different from that of a corsage, and they’re much easier to make: a single preserved flower, in this case, a preserved rose in any of a number of different colors. If you want to buy a boutonniere, get yours from Verdissimo!
The Tradition Behind Corsages and Boutonnieres
The tradition behind these floral accessories goes back to the ’20s, when men gave corsages to women’s fathers.
It’s a tradition with more than 80 years of history, especially in countries like the United States, where it went from being placed on the dress to being worn on the wrist.
