Flowers To Wear for Prom

prom season quickly approaching

With prom season quickly approaching, it is a smart idea to keep stock of flowers that are trending in your retail shop. Here at Main Wholesale Florist, we want to make sure that our customers are geared up for this spring season!

Here are some flowers that are totally wearable and amazing for any prom design:

Mini Carnations

Mini carnations are light weight and delicate. They’re fluffy petals would be amazing to pair with other wholesale blooms when building corsages.

Hypericum Berries

Hypericum has rounded berries that when paired as a secondary flower or filler adds a wonderful whimsical feel to any design.

Freesia

Freesia adds that tropical element without breaking the bank for your customers. They are elegant and come in a variety of beautiful colors.

Thistle

Also known as Eryngium, this amazing filler will add a unique texture that young prom attendees will die for!

Monte Casino Asters

Monte casino asters having tiny blooms that would lay nicely on a small wrist, perfect for the young wearer.

Be sure to suggest these wholesale flowers to your customers. As the retail owner, you are the expert and can guide a sale to completion. Create samples of your designs to keep in your floral cooler to entice parents and young adults to purchase. Also, be sure to advertise not only on your social media accounts but also through local high schools in the area. People are sure to flock to your shop to purchase designs with proper advertisement and marketing.

You can visit our New Jersey and New York locations to see the highest quality wholesale florals. We can help make suggestions and help to answer any questions that you might have. You can also have the flowers delivered directly to your retail location using our Flower Express Service!
