Default Quick ? regarding debutante balls to natives

My son has been asked to be an escort. Should he supply a corsage, or flowers of any kind? We are totally new to this.

Yes, traditionally a wrist corsage is appropriate, as are white tie and tails. He should check with whatever Presentation Committee is responsible, however.

Thank you LD. All we have to go on is the invitation sent by the girl's parents. The formal wear is taken care of, we're just not sure of any other obligations. The girls traditionally wear white, correct? So the corsage should also be white?

I would call the girl's mother, just to be sure. The deb usually gets presented with flowers(I had 12 red roses) at the presentation. It's been years since I was a deb, but corsages were not given and everyone wore white gloves. Every organization has it's own traditions. I hope your son has a great time, I remember my debut fondly-still have the white dress!

I am about to go into PTSD convulsions over this thread... J/K

I was not a debutante...but not because my mother didn't try. She gave up when I threatened to show up with my dress on fire. Actually, I think she knew I'd never agree to do it so she didn't push too hard. She'd already had fun with it with my older sister.

But, you have received very good advice. I hope your son has a good time!

Do not do anything without calling the girl's mother. I am sure she knows exactly what she wants and will not hesitate to let you know.

I am the mother of three grown daughters.
