Wire is the "new" ribbon! Available in eye popping colors and thicknesses, you'll love these newest and hottest looks for today's corsages and boutonnieres!
Stunning corsages are beautifully accented with colored wire. Here you see two lavender dendrobium orchids accented with purple wire, green hypericum berries and a little seeded eucalyptus.
On of the best advantages is that you can prepare your corsages and boutonnieres earlier and then pop them into water to keep fresh. Wire is impervious to moisture and will stay looking great even if it sits in water.
Guys who used to rebel against dainty ribbons and sheer tulle seem to think that the wire look is very cool and much less "fussy".
You can even mesh and shape the fine wire to replace the look of traditional corsage leaves.
A simple wire coiled around the stem of the bout looks beautiful and firmly keeps all the stems and flowers in place. No more hiding the mechanics!
Colored wire adds a delicate flourish and an updated look to carnations. The cost of wire is no more significant than a bolt of sheer corsage ribbon.
