Centuries ago, in medieval times, a man would be given and "wear a lady's colors" either a ribbon or flower on his left arm before battle or a joust. This was considered the epitome of chivalry since it signified that he was fighting specifically for her. Today, men wear a boutonniere of a flower from the girl's corsage on their left side, just above the heart.   

"Wear your heart on your sleeve"

Consider This...

  • A boutonniere is usually one large bloom or a group of two or three smaller blooms from the girl's corsage

  • Modern prom boutonnieres can be flashy but also keep in mind that you need to be comfortable with it

  • Usually, the boutonniere will match your date's corsage
