Whatever you do, make sure you and your date find you a dynamite corsage to match your dynamite prom dress.
White Flowers for Classic Looks
So classic, so chic, so elegant – white is a beautiful choice for a corsage if you’re planning to rock a glamorous, timeless black prom dress. Soft creams, pure whites, or a mix of the two can really bring a classic sheen to your black prom dress. Consider adding in a white rose for your centerpiece surrounded by other, beautiful white buds such as orchids, white ranunculus, or spray roses. Don’t be afraid to throw in some black or white ribbon, too! It should be classic, but it should also be chic. This will help to soften up your look while providing an elegant twist to your already sophisticated look.
Red is Timeless
As usual, a classic red can do absolutely no wrong, and that’s especially true when you’re pairing it as a corsage with a classic black prom dress. Consider going full-classic with a bright, red rose as the primary flower around on your corsage – nothing says romance, sensuality, and excitement like a beautiful red rose, right? If you want to add in fun accents surrounding, you could mix in another red shade in the form of berry drops as well as green leaves or try to soften up the overall look by adding in a few white gardenias or orchids that we mentioned above!
Sophisticated, Soft, Subtle
The beautiful thing about a black dress is that it’s so versatile – by that we mean you can add in several different shades and hues into your look without it overpowering your dress. Consider adding in soft, supple colors like light pinks, pastel peaches, and delicate purples. Try not to go too bold and bright when you’re doing this – try to keep these colors light and soft – to avoid any potential clashing. Consider flowers like purple lilies for a little drama, purple orchids, light-pink cymbidium orchids, or even sprays of small roses and white hyacinth.
