It is customary for the boy to buy a corsage for his date. It can be a pin-on type, or one she can wear around her wrist. Some even buy a small bouquet that a girl can carry in her hand or a display of roses to rest in her arm.
It is a good idea to know what color dress your date is wearing so that the flowers that you choose do not clash. Additionally, it would be good to know what her favorite flower(s) are.
Some couples like to go together and choose the flowers.
Customarily girls buy a boutonniere for their dates. Usually it is a pin-on carnation or rose with baby's breath to be worn traditionally on the right lapel. You may want to order this at the same time your date orders your corsage. Some florists will offer a package deal if you order the two items together.
Flowers are always worn in the same direction that they grow, so they will be pointed upward rather than down. Corsages and boutonnieres are worn on the same side as the heart.
