Wedding Corsage Ideas
An organdy corsage looks beautiful with an added lace flower that was printed on heat transfer paper and then ironed on to fabric.
A wrist corsage is only as old-fashioned as its design. To give yours a modern look, choose a flower that is “big and elegant,” like a gardenia or a flat garden rose, and opting for a ribbon base over an elastic band.
Ribbon Flower Corsage
Give your bridesmaids a fashionable floral accessory that will look fresh long after the wedding day: wrist corsages made with silk ribbon flowers. They can even be tied around a ponytail or worn as brooches. These corsages are easy to make: Tie elastic ribbon around your wrist in a big bow, then pin the bloom to the knot.
This sweet flower-girl accessory is a wonderful option for a youngster who may not be ready to sprinkle petals from a basket. We made gathers in eyelet trim, then coiled it (securing with a few stitches as we went) to create the layered "petals" of a lush bloom; a piece of eyelet trim secures it to her wrist.
Tuck a single blossom through a slit in a wide velvet ribbon to create an elegant wrist corsage for any special occasion.
Wrist Watch Corsage
Elasticized ribbon, which comes in many styles and materials, ensures a snug and comfortable fit on this wrist watch corsage with a single bloom.
Corsages for Guests
Bride and groom, Emily and Jeff infused their Colorado Springs wedding with several DIY touches. One such detail, which helped carry out their floral and fabric themes were small fabric flowers attached to pins with ribbon, which were set out for guests.
Crepe Paper Flower Corsage
Flowers crafted from colorful tissue or crepe paper are graceful, inexpensive to make, and always in season. Attach to a ribbon or elastic band to create a beautiful corsage.
Silk Flower Hair Band or Corsage
Silk flowers never wilt or fade, which makes them a fitting memento of your wedding. Share these with your bridesmaids and have them wear them in their hair or on their wrists.
Like a corsage, but for your finger, these fabric-flower bands will be a hit with your bridesmaids. Give them out at the shower or rehearsal dinner.
Bride and groom, Allison and Jacob wanted to marry their love of dressing up with the tradition of exchanging corsages and boutonnieres by creating a playful and lasting take on an actual flower. Using custom-printed silk from Spoonflower, Etsy vendor BackYardPrims made fabric corsages for the women and boutonnieres for the men. When guests arrived at the ceremony, they selected their accessory from apothecary jars next to a calligraphed sign inviting guests to don a bit of whimsy.
Do nature one better: Turn the dainty blossoms of cymbidium orchids into big, dramatic blooms. The flowers come in festive colors -- and even stripes and dots. Give them to mothers instead of traditional corsages.
