PromBack2-FlowersAnd-JoyceMasonMonheimWith prom season in full force, the first thought of any girl is, of course, the dress. Do you choose a two-piece or a high-low cut? A classic elegant style or the trendy color blocking design? Or is there sparkle and shine? So many choices and will you make the right one?

When choosing the right look, you ask yourself: What color best fits my complexion? Which perfect shoe accents the dress style? And next come the jewelry, flowers, hairstyle and makeup. Hold it. How about simplifying this by combining your accessories, such as jewelry with flowers or your hairstyle with flowers?

This can be a simple process by visiting your local professional florist and requesting floral accessories that best complement your dress. Think about the style and cut of your dress to determine how flowers, just like jewelry, can accentuate the perfect point on your neckline, shoulder, waist or even back. Flower accessories can be placed anywhere you choose, and with the incredible products your local florist has, the options are endless. From clips to magnets, nothing is out of reach or out of place.

One of the trendy styles is beautiful illusion or deep detailed backs of the dress. Accentuate the back of your dress by using floral clips that have flowers attached. Bling adds attention and creativity to the dress back. Complete the look with coordinating wristlets for a front detail.

PromHair-FlowersAnd-JoyceMasonMonheimUsing flowers to create a one-of-a-kind statement piece for your necklace can enhance any neckline and back of the dress also.  Your florist can use zippers, garlands or even decorative wire to create these incredible art pieces that know one else will have. Don’t stop there —add a floral ring or earrings to coordinate with your statement piece.

Last but not least, don’t forget to enhance your hair. Any updo style can be accented with flowers, halos or even hairpieces that bring your look totally together. It’s all up to you and your creative floral designer to accessorize your style and your look.

Your florist can also help you coordinate your date’s boutonniere with the same style and look you have just created. You will be the “star of the show” and the envy of all your friends.
