The Unconventional Guide to Formal Event Flowers


Due to our busy schedule, we cannot give ourselves enough time to think about the perfect flowers that would match the event that we are going to attend. Some people search the internet for the perfect idea while some buy books to help them and learn a great deal about flowers in the process while taking a break in the office. If you don’t know where to get answers, the best solution to this problem is to call the nearest flower shop to help you come up with a great floral arrangement.

Here are the best flowers that could make you and your date’s evening complete:


Flowers are indeed necessary to make you stunning in the eyes of many and your evening wonderful and unforgettable. The best flowers that you’ll need for your corsage and boutonniere are roses, orchids, gerbera daisies and calla lilies. If you are going to use roses, the best flower to accentuate its beauty is lemon leaf. These flowers might be a little expensive but it would really bring out the best in you.

When choosing flowers for prom, always make sure that the whole bunch would complement your date or partner for the night. This way, you won’t ruin each other’s night by having a totally contrasting set of flowers and attire to the prom. You can solve this problem by planning ahead – ask your date what she’s going to be wearing on that important night. Doing this would save you the trouble of buying another bouquet or basket of flowers last minute.


Wedding is another exciting event that needs to be highlighted with beautiful and fragrant flowers. If you are going to attend a wedding ceremony, bringing flowers that will immortalize the event are absolutely necessary especially if the bride is your friend.

Tropical flowers such as heliconia, hibiscus, stargazer lily, ginger, birds-of-paradise, anthurium and gardenia are the best flowers for this kind of occasion. Before going to the event, make sure that you have called your local flower shop beforehand in order to secure the freshest flowers in their stock. If in a remote chance you have just heard about the wedding, you can also ask for same day delivery.

Office Events

Office events dictate that you should always look smart and formal at all times. The attendees that you will see on this kind of event wear extravagant suits and gowns because this is the best time for businessmen to impress their current and potential clients. For the employees on the other hand, this is the best time to impress their boss. Having said this, the best flower that would complement your suit/gown are orchids. These flowers will easily complement whatever formal attire you are wearing on that night.

In order to prevent hassle and complete nightmare on formal events that you are going to attend, always make sure that you plan ahead. Give yourself one or two weeks to plan and think about the best flowers that you should bring. If you are not confident about your choices, you can consult a team of florists in your local flower shop so that you’ll know the best combination of blooms that you need to bring with you. By doing this, you can have an idea of what to bring on another formal event the next time that you are invited or required to attend.
