Where To Buy A Cheap Prom Corsage, Because Flowers Can Get Freaking Expensive

Newsflash: For growing naturally in the ground (thanks mama earth!), flowers are freaking expensive. Fortunately, I've scouted out where to buy a cheap prom corsage so you can rock some floral bliss on your special night without breaking the bank. Every corsage below clocks in under $50!

Of course, if you have enough time and are feeling crafty, one of the easiest ways to cut costs on a prom corsage is making your own. Flower Moxie made an epic YouTube tutorial for how to create the perfect DIY wrist corsage with a slap bracelet, a plastic adapter (brilliant), a few small zip ties, and a satin ribbon.

As for what flowers to use, Flower Moxie recommends "spray roses, ranunculus, button mums, and carnations ... as well as many types of greenery!" Additionally, 1-800-FLOWERS.com expert Julie Mulligan provided a few tips on flower pairing, telling me "Roses + Berzelia Berries + Waxflower" work to create a bright boho look, while "Hydrangea Clusters + Rice flower + Monte Casino" come together for a soft, romantic vibe.

But if you know for sure that there is no way in hell you're going to try to make your own prom corsage, I totally understand! Scroll on for great budget-friendly-ish corsage picks.
