Corsage HELP!!!

My Soon to be sister in law has chosen calla lillies for her corsages and boutonnieres what else goes good with them? Im not talking about other flowers but does the leather leaf or baby's breath or what? im ordering the flowers tomorrow and need to know what goes best with it, we are going to wrap the stem in ribbon but we dont know what else to use, ive take a flower class and although i know how to make corsages and bouquets and such i never grasped the whole what flowers look good together, i know the calla lily is a horrible flower for weddings, since its the flower of death and all but its her wedding. Please help!!!!!

  • I like babies breath, but what you can do is google image "calla lily corsage" or something similar, and you will be able to look at different corsages and get an idea or what you like. Good luck!

  • a nice broad leaf but try not to make it too much larger than the lily. place it behind or behind and tilt it a little.......
