REVIEW: Interflora Corsages

I have been given the opportunity to write a review for Interflora's new Corsage service, as I had my best friends wedding coming up I snapped it up and on the 24th July got to road test it.

The new service is a choice of Four corsages to add that extra special touch to your outfit for that big event in your diary. Just choose your Corsage, tell them the date of the event et viola! It is delivered to your door and the panic of finding that perfect outfit accessory is all taken care of.

I chose the Orchid corsage and it was delivered to me the day before.

The flowers and decorative ivy leaves are attached to a metal plate with small metal flaps and a bit of glue to keep them in place.

As you can see from this picture, the bottom orchid could have been secured a bit better, but apart from that it was beautiful, and throughout the day I received some wonderful comments from people who told me they would consider using the service.

I chose the orchids because I felt that it would compliment my black dress the best. On reflection, learning from this experience it was perhaps not the best of ideas as where the orchid is such a delicate flower and the wedding being an entire afternoon/evening affair, it wasn't long before it looked a little tired. The bottom orchid that I was worried about falling out did before I got to the church but I managed to secure it again under one of the metal 'teeth'.
At some point in the evening though it did go AWOL :(

Overall I was very pleased with my corsage and I am happy to recommend the service. Only advice is to just be aware of the type of event you are attending and to bare that in mind when choosing your corsage.
