BOUTONNIERES~~~Do They Still Do Them For Homecoming Dances

Do your daughters buy boutonnieres for their dates for the Homecoming dances?

My 16 year old daughter is prepearing for their Homecoming dance.  It's the first one she's been to.  She in a new school and they didn't have them at her old school.  She got the nice party dress and told her boyfriend the color (he wanted to know~I'm assuming so he could match his tie to it as well as get a coordinating corsage.)  Anyway, I'm telling my daughter she needs to buy him a boutonniere too.  She doesn't believe me.  She's telling me that you only do that for prom.  I told her that we always did.  She tells me that they don't do things like get corsages and boutonnieres anymore.  That's old fashioned.  This boy does so much for her and I feel confident that he will get her a corsage.  I just think she needs to get him a boutonniere.  What do you think?

Homecoming here isn't that formal so no we didn't get boutonnieres for our dd's date when she went to homecoming dances.

When I was in school homecoming wasn't formal at all. (don't know if that changed at all) It was always held in the cafe and no one dressed up. The only dances that people dressed up for was the semi (held in Feb.) and the prom.
