Spring is upon us, which can only mean one thing for the teenagers in your life: prom season is coming up! While most young people only think as far as who they’ll take as their date, there’s actually a lot of planning that goes into a prom experience: the restaurant before the dance, the party after it, the limo ride, the dresses and, of course, the flowers, corsages and tuxedo rentals. Fortunately, Country Gardens Blair Florist is able to cover a good bulk of your needs, as we offer flowers, corsages and tuxedo rentals in Washington County, NE.
With both flowers and tuxedos, a lot of different options are out there, and a lot of factors go into choosing the perfect options for you and your date. Here’s an overview of some of the things you should consider in each of these areas.
Flowers and corsages
When it comes to corsages, boutonnieres and flower bouquets for prom, there are a few conventional guidelines most people know to follow. The most tried and true option, of course, is to try to match the flowers to your date’s outfit. While this is generally a good idea, it’s often nearly impossible to match the shade completely, especially if all you know is the general color of the dress or tie.
What tends to be a wiser approach is to pick a complementary color, as this will coordinate well without clashing or being too “matchy-matchy.” Another smart move, if you’re able to do it, is to bring your date with you and pick out your flowers together. But when in doubt, pick a neutral color—a white orchid, for instance, is a classic, and never out of style.
If you go to a quality florist, you should be able to lean on them for fun, unusual prom flower ideas. At Country Gardens Blair Florist, we’re happy to help you find the perfect look for you and your date.
We’ve handled a lot of tuxedo rentals in Washington County, NE, so we know the common dos and don’ts of renting the perfect tuxedo. If you’re new to the experience, make it simple by boiling the process down to two simple areas: fit and color.
While it’s rare to find a “fits like a glove” tuxedo when renting, you can come a lot closer by having yourself measured. Never rent a tuxedo from a place that doesn’t know to take your measurements.
Next is color. While it can be tempting to find a tuxedo in a trendy color, keep in mind that your prom pictures will follow you through your whole life. A standard black or white suit looks good on everyone, and you can still have fun with the accessories if you need a pop of color.
We hope this guide proves to be useful for prom-goers—and their parents—in Washington County, NE who are in need of tuxedo rentals and flowers. Whether or not it’s the magical night you expect, at least you’ll look and feel great.
