If the word "corsage" makes you cringe with the thought of high school prom, think again. Beautiful, blooming wrist corsages are earning a place in the wedding world and we understand why: Not only are they super pretty, but corsages are also a cost-effective way to make a big statement without blowing your whole budget on flowers for you and your bridesmaids.
If you're not the type of bride who can see yourself toting around a bouquet all night long, consider swapping the classic arrangement for this unexpected trend. Or you can also carry the corsage as if it were a classic posy if you still want something to carry down the aisle.
In the photo above, you can see just how pretty these floral accessories can be. Plus, you don't even have to give up bridal-favorite flowers in order to make the trend work. Classic peonies or garden roses make for beautiful corsages. To achieve an understated, but romantic look, stick with one or two oversized blooms and fill the rest of the arrangement with greenery, small flowers, and berries.
Still not ready to party with your classic, lush wedding bouquet? Consider gifting your bridesmaids with a colorful corsage that coordinates with their dress — another wedding trend that's gaining popularity.
