Prom is coming up and if my date gets me a corsage, what arm does it go on if it is for your wrist? If it is pinned what side does it go on?

Dear Need to know,
Corsages are usually worn on the left, so the wrist corsage would normally be worn on your left wrist. However, prom pictures have various poses, so if necessary, switch your wrist corsage to the other wrist so that it will show up in the prom photo.
You might mention the color of your dress to your date. When he orders the corsage, the florist can help choose flowers and a ribbon to complement the dress color.
In addition, you should buy your date a boutonniere with a ribbon color similar to your dress. Store it in the refrigerator to keep it fresh, then pin the boutonniere onto his left lapel when he arrives.
