12 Prom and Wedding Wearables your Customers Will Want
What happens when you offer customers floral beauty beyond their expectations? Three good things.

They buy it. They show up at their event in style. Or, at the least, they see you have creativity that differentiates your business—and refer others to you.

What to offer in 2019? Petal-pretty wearable flower designs. From knuckle ring to anklet, bracelet to bustier, petal dress to floral scarf, with shoes, purses, crowns and tiaras thrown in—pretty petals you can wear are taking the stage.

For prom, weddings or special events, fresh flower attire is flourishing!

To support your flourishing efforts, this week's IDEA Weekly blog by Smithers-Oasis Design Director Sharon McGukin AIFD, AAF, PFCI, presents a dozen wearable floral design ideas from Franςoise Weeks, Garrett Stupinksi, Carol Jillian and other designers. 

There’s fresh new looks for spring or any event. And we’re not talking your everyday corsage or boutonniere either, as Franςoise’s designs above show (with more from her in the blog)!

Consider this your 2019 guide to wearable petal-pretty attire. Included are floral mechanics tips for each with links to more detailed design articles where available.
