More about Corsages

Wrist corsages are floral accessories that are worn around the wrist like a bracelet. Wrist corsages add an elegant and sophisticated touch to a formal outfit and are an essential piece for ball-goers. They also add a lavish touch to wedding attire; particularly for bridesmaids, flower girls and Mothers of the Bride and Groom. To complete a formal look, buttonholes and hair pieces can also be worn. The flowers used in our wrist corsages are carefully selected to match the colours and theme of the event, creating a cohesive and polished look.

Wrist corsages are appropriate for a wide range of events, including school balls, weddings, formal dinners, and other special events. They can be used to add a touch of colour and sophistication to any outfit and make a great gift for your partner going out to a special occasion.

Did you know: wrist corsages should be worn on the left wrist, as it is traditional for women to wear their corsage on the same side as their heart!

Everything You Need To Know About Wrist Corsages in 2024

What is a Wrist Corsage?

A wrist corsage is a small, ornamental arrangement of flowers that is designed to be worn on the wrist. We construct ours with a combination of wire and glue, but a lot of florists like to secure theirs with an elastic band or ribbon. Wrist corsages are a popular choice for weddings, school balls, and other formal events. While they might seem like an outdated, traditional nuisance, wrist corsages are more popular than ever.

Who Can Wear a Wrist Corsage?

Wrist corsages are versatile accessories suitable for all kinds of occasions. Traditionally, they are worn by school ballgoers, bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride and groom. They also make a unique gift to be worn for a special occasion, such as anniversaries at a restaurant or formal event. Arranging a delivery of a wrist corsage as an unexpected gift is an incredibly thoughtful gesture, and makes the perfect gift to celebrate a special occasion.

Are Wrist Corsages Still a Thing?

Yep! Although they sound super old-school, wrist corsages remain a timeless accessory for school balls. Customise them by matching the colours to your outfit to really complete the look. If you’re unsure of what matches, leave it to the experts. If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with white flowers.

Can I Wear a Wrist Corsage Without a Date?

Of course! Wrist corsages are not reserved solely for couples. Wearing a wrist corsage is a beautiful and empowering choice. If you’re flying solo to your school ball or special event, treat yourself to a stunning floral accessory that complements your style.

What Side Do I Wear My Wrist Corsage On?

Traditionally, a wrist corsage is worn on the left wrist. However, personal preferences and jewellery can alter this choice. Feel free to wear it on the right wrist or even higher up the arm, depending on your comfort and style.

How Long Does a Wrist Corsage Last?

The lifespan of a wrist corsage depends on the type of flowers used and how well it is cared for. Because there isn’t a water source, they are not designed to last long, so keep this in mind when you order one. Your wrist corsage should be good for the duration of your event. To maximise its lifespan, store it in a cool place and mist the flowers lightly with water. We always recommend ordering your wrist corsage for the day you plan on wearing it.

How Much Does a Wrist Corsage Cost in NZ?

The cost of a wrist corsage can vary based on factors such as the type of flowers used and the complexity of the design. With that considered, most wrist corsages cost between $40 – $70 in NZ. At Avant Garden, we offer a wrist corsage style that looks glamourous but doesn’t break the bank.
