Corsage

A corsage /kɔːrˈsɑːʒ/ is a small bouquet of flowers worn on a woman's dress or worn around her wrist on a formal occasion, traditionally purchased by the woman's date, husband, or fiancé. Corsages are now most commonly seen at homecomings, proms, or similar events.

  • In some countries, corsages are worn by the mothers and grandmothers of the bride and groom at a wedding ceremony.
  • The corsage is worn on a young woman's clothing or wrist for a homecoming celebration or other formal occasions such as prom in some schools around the world.
  • Father-daughter dances are now becoming more popular and encourage the young girl to wear a small wrist corsage while the father has an option of using a boutonnière.
