My favorite part of the big reveal was the corsage. Simply the Best Flowers in Martinsville, Virginia, crafted a beautiful arrangement featuring white roses and a small masquerade pin to match the “Mystery Masquerade” theme.

I love the reveal.

The build up of gifting the girl the most beautiful corsage. One that wows and captures her dreams.

About the Corsage Reveal for Prom:

A corsage reveal adds to the anticipation and excitement leading up to prom night. Traditionally, it’s a moment where a student’s date or close friend presents them with a small floral arrangement designed to match their attire. This thoughtful gesture often involves creative or unique presentation methods, making it a memorable and personalized moment. The corsage reveal has become a charming way for students to share the excitement of the evening while showing off their creativity and thoughtfulness in preparation for the big night.

The corsage should be one that brings awe and excitement. Ask for something over the top, bring embellishments to the florist and ask them to incorporate them. We brought matching masquerade pins, wire-wrapped crystals, a charm, and sequins from the dress. We asked for a Peacock theme, over the top. and the results were fantastic.

To ensure a perfect matching boutonniere, we order at the same time and bring the same “add-ons” we brought to order the corsage. Traditionally the girl is supposed to buy the boutonniere, but we break tradition to ensure they match and it’s all a big surprise for the sweet reveal.
