The one thing I always keep in mind it should go on the same side as the heart or on the same side as your wedding ring. So this traditionally is on the left so the corsage is on the left wrist and the boutonnieres are on the left lapel.

  • It is generally recognized as proper etiquette to wear the wrist corsage on the left, although a left-handed date may prefer her wrist corsage worn on the right arm.
  • Interesting is the fact that corsages were first worn by ladies in the center of their dress/bodice and were usually much larger than today.
  • Corsages were worn to ward off evil spirits, but they were also worn at weddings. The corsage has traveled a long way from the bodice of a womans dress. They are now most commonly worn pinned to the shoulder, or attached to an elasticized band worn around the wrist.
  • History is interesting:
  • In ancient times, flowers were often worn to special events to ward off evil spirits. Herbs and flowers were thought to be effective at keeping evil at bay, particularly during weddings or other momentous occasions. Special participants wore corsages to keep themselves safe. Men, too, wore flowers for many of the same reasons.

  • The Mother's Day corsage is usually an orchid, which represents love, beauty and strength given to the mother to express respect.
