A silk corsage is often given by the girls or womans date although of course at a wedding it is organized by the bride usually for the grandmothers and mothers.  The idea of wearing flowers on clothing goes back a long way – at least to ancient Greece. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries they were warn by women to ward off disease and perhaps even bad spirits. The French phrase bouquet de corsage is where the word came from – simply meaning flowers worn on the upper portion on the body.

The idea of a wrist corsage came about when the dress styles of the time did not allow for something pinned on them. Silk roses are super popular followed by silk orchids, silk carnations and many more.

Although there are no hard and fast rules, younger people tend to wear them on the wrist, others wear on the shoulder of the dress. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes dependent on the event and the wearer and the number and size of the flowers used. You will even be able to find them with beading, succulents, with ribbons. Enjoy the range of flowers all of high quality (all reviewed by people just like you) and great pricing.
