We are often asked to create a prom corsage & boutonniere that
matches the dress color exactly.. not a shade lighter or darker
and absolutely no other colors except the color of the dress.
Although this request seems like a reasonable & safe choice, it's not the best choice.
Especially when your dress is Turquoise or it's lighter shade Aqua, or some other
hard to match color of the rainbow.
To find the BEST choice for your prom flowers,
you need to remember what you learned in Art class about color.
Remember the Color Wheel??
Colors look their best when they are in harmony with other colors,
or different values or shades of the same color.
