Football-playing freshman Billy from Michigan just started dating Katie. The
two are going to Homecoming together this weekend and they couldn’t be more
psyched. The only problem? Billy doesn’t know what kind of wrist corsage to get
for his girl! All we know is she’s wearing a black dress.

as many people said..
black or white or try to compliment her eyes!
by EQC123 on 10/17/2011 7:06:20 AM
White or red rose. Maybe a black band. Or try and compliment her eye color or skin tone.
by Aislinn120 on 10/16/2011 6:25:51 PM
do not get a carnation! what color shirt are you wearing? get a white flower you pick out and the wrist band to match your shirt is its colored. if not just get a black band with a red or white rose.

by bananaeater345 on 10/15/2011 12:43:45 PM
Well, black does go with anything.
Maybe get one that matches her eyes. She'll be touched to know that you pay attention to these things, and it'll be a nice accessory for her.
If she has brown eyes, get something that will compliment the color. Or something that will stand out nicely against the black.
by 5jellybean on 10/14/2011 9:35:04 PM
Black band, white and red roses. Go classic!
by kk25225 on 10/13/2011 8:58:04 PM
Like everyone said, black goes with everything. If I were you, I would get her favorite flower in her favorite color. If you don't want to go that route, then just go to the place where you'll be purchasing the corsage and look around. Something is bound to catch your eye. Let us know how it went
by Stargirlcandy3 on 10/13/2011 8:43:56 PM
I think you should just go with a white rose. :]
by Lauren68 on 10/13/2011 8:10:54 PM
Well, black can go with pretty much anything. If you know what color her shoes are going to be, or if she's carrying a purse, get one to match that. Or, get one to match her eyes.
by webkin6766 on 10/13/2011 3:49:11 PM
If you want to go simple yet classy,buy her a red rose. If you want to surprise her a little more,go for something that pops with the color black,like bright pink.
by kaitlinautumnx3 on 10/13/2011 10:01:58 AM
I would go with red.
by fireworks1071 on 10/13/2011 9:11:17 AM
I tend to like red silver. I think you will do great.

by maddieboo786 on 10/13/2011 5:15:19 AM
A red, purple, or blue would look cute with the black dress
by kaylarocks2000 on 10/13/2011 1:36:05 AM
That guy looks so hot. I think guys look so sexy when they wear tuxedos. Yumm!
by luckykel on 10/12/2011 11:22:42 PM
Hmmm.... I don't know what her favorite color or flower is but if it was me I would want something bright to contrast from my dress. Maybe a fuschia orchid or even go traditional and get a red rose! Have a great time!
by theatreluver26 on 10/12/2011 11:06:08 PM
A red or white rose will definately stand out. If not that, lilac or ramona (a blue-red flower) will make her shine.
by bookwormgrrl14 on 10/12/2011 10:48:16 PM
Ooh! Try reds and pinks, also try matching your tie to the corsage so you look complete!
by sweetdreamer98 on 10/12/2011 9:38:05 PM
Go bright! Get something unique, like hot pink, purple, or even blue. It'll look awesome against her dress.
by Harry-Potter-Fan on 10/12/2011 9:36:55 PM
Something that matches her eyes. I loved it when my boyfriend got me a blue corsage that made my eye pop! Have fun at the dance!
by mmragan13 on 10/12/2011 9:36:41 PM
Find out her favorite color and favorite kind of flower and do what you can to get her her favorite flower in her favorite color i suggest a bright colored flower so it stands out against her black dress. Good luck!!!
by ParamoreRox13 on 10/12/2011 9:03:36 PM
If you know her favorite color then get her a flower in that color.
But an Orchid mean delicate beauty.
If all else fail... every girl likes red roses
by TheCuteNerd on 10/12/2011 8:58:33 PM
A simple white or cream-colored flower would look stunning with the dress! Try a light pink, or maybe a lilac too. Have fun!!

by greeknspooky on 10/12/2011 8:12:52 PM
What color tie are you wearing? Match it so that you look like a couple. If her dress is black, anything will work--black goes with everything. It IS cheesy, but it's cute!
by Doodle600 on 10/12/2011 8:10:42 PM
You should get a white, and purple one, to match her dress. You could get a matching one to pin to your tux. Good luck!
by Fmwhitt on 10/12/2011 8:02:27 PM
by babygirl1999 on 10/12/2011 7:54:02 PM
You could think about a color you think about when you think about Katie. Or her favorite flower. Or you could match with the colors your wearing. Good Luck!
by Queen Genius on 10/12/2011 7:46:26 PM
Pink and white!! your lucky, we dont have homecoming at my school, im a freshman too. all we have is a lousy football game. no dance. This girl must be really lucky to have a guy that cares so much about her! <3
by lilriver123xD on 10/12/2011 7:46:12 PM
I'd suggest a multi-color. Since she's wearing black, it would be cool to add some color. Or a meaningful color, like her favorite or something personal. If you remember what color you first starting dating or something would be ah-mazing. Good luck!!!!!
by alwaysdreamer on 10/12/2011 7:32:13 PM
Get one that's the color of her eyes, and tell her it was your favorite for that reason. Sounds cheesy, I know, but c'mon, it would be SSSSOOOOOO sweet! She would love it!
by christi11 on 10/12/2011 7:30:33 PM
by curlygirl9 on 10/12/2011 7:27:12 PM
by curlygirl9 on 10/12/2011 7:12:55 PM
I would ask about her favorite color- since ANYTHING goes with black!
White with a touch of color is always nice though!
by RaceTiger7 on 10/12/2011 6:58:51 PM
pick one that matches her eyes or her favorite color or a red rose/carnation good luck!
by sparrowchavez on 10/12/2011 6:54:51 PM
White looks really nice with black! or get her her fave color (remember that black looks good with anything )! good luck Billy!
by Emilicious on 10/12/2011 6:54:08 PM
Since black goes with almost every color that you can possibly think of, try getting her a corsage in her favorite color. Or, if black is one of your school colors, you could get her your second school color! (My school's colors are black and gold.) It all depends on whether or not your Homecoming has a specific theme to it. If it does, your school's colors may not look so well. For example, if the theme is going to be Under the Stars, you could get her a light blue or purple corsage. Hope I helped! Good luck, and I hope you two have fun!
by babygirl1999 on 10/12/2011 6:46:14 PM
pick her favorite color
by horselover408 on 10/12/2011 6:42:34 PM
red. or purple.. or turquoise
by CeceG98 on 10/12/2011 6:26:02 PM
I think red would look really nice.
by supersingershannon on 10/12/2011 6:23:44 PM
by curlygirl9 on 10/12/2011 5:59:36 PM
Get her one in her favorite color or get something totally unique that none her friends will have.
by roseeawesome on 10/12/2011 5:56:16 PM
by mkroberts96 on 10/12/2011 5:54:26 PM
Definately a mix of light and dark purples, OR peacock feathers actually look really cool too. However, if he knows her favorite color, he could also get her one with her favorite color in it.
Black goes with anything.
I'm going to Homecoming two weeks from now, and I think that's really sweet and I wish him and his girlfriend a wonderful time.
by ladybuglover28 on 10/12/2011 5:50:02 PM
get her a red and white one!!
by mthurman on 10/12/2011 5:37:44 PM
by volley_ball2341 on 10/12/2011 5:35:12 PM

by Bananas81 on 10/12/2011 5:27:00 PM
Maybe white to look classy or maybe pink, or red.

by liddywitty on 10/12/2011 5:09:40 PM
Good luck! Have funnnn
by millina*girl on 10/12/2011 5:09:25 PM
I've gotta say that matching her eyes is an incredible idea, and her favorite color is another great one. I just wanna say that if you can find one with a bunch of different bright colors (like a sunburst or rainbow theme) would also be cool.
by millina*girl on 10/12/2011 5:09:12 PM
well if its only a balck dress than u can get any corsage it could be white to look really cool or pink to be girly
so firts find out whts her favorite color and im pretty sure itll go w/ her dress and shell love it
by coly33 on 10/12/2011 4:49:13 PM
Something to match her eyes. Girls luh-v when the corsage matches their eyes!
by TeamAlice33 on 10/12/2011 4:44:37 PM
Black goes with everything, soo... get a rose of her favorite color OR another color that might mean something to her. Did her grandmother die of breastcancer so she's a big "Go Pink" supporter? buy her a baby pink rose or carnation.
by deathwolf13 on 10/12/2011 4:44:34 PM
i would say either something in her fav color OR a red rose or carnation. ooh, I would LOVE to get one of those...lol
by dramaqueen122 on 10/12/2011 4:36:38 PM
definitely purple and white thats all im sayin
by sidneyricerules18 on 10/12/2011 4:34:34 PM
I say pick a simple flower, possibly one that matches her eyes if it goes well with black.
by peaceluvandhockey on 10/12/2011 4:21:32 PM
get her favorite color. black really goes with anything, so the best bet would be to get her fave color.
by Kalulah on 10/12/2011 4:20:37 PM
When in doubt, black goes with everything so pick her favorite color and run with it. Also, ask the flourists, it IS thier job and they know what looks good.
by ArtGirl13 on 10/12/2011 4:05:28 PM
i say yellow that'll look nice with the black.
by lipglossluver2 on 10/12/2011 4:04:21 PM
pick whichever one reflects her personality. i think brighter colors for a more upbeat and outgoing girl, and lighter colors if she's shy and soft.
by fallsb-ball on 10/12/2011 4:02:46 PM
I was thinking, more like a cream or white flower corsage (yellow works too!) with gold/yellow detailing.
by biskii on 10/12/2011 4:02:07 PM
MOD! MOD! MOD! ive liked this guy since the beginning of freshman year(were sophmomres now) we lke rarely talk (last time was lke 7 words all together adn 3 weeks ago) i sometimes see him looking at me..and he seems kinda differnt around me he talks to every other girl pretty much so easily but whenever we talk for lke 2 seconds he seems so shy.. r entire skool had this feild trip last week adn when i was doing something my friend was watchin him adn she said he was looking at me with his eyes smiling adn his friend was talking to him but wasnt paying any attention to his friend..sometimes i see him all around..lke during cheerleading practice he was sitting near with some of his friends..but it doesnt seem lke he told any of his friends if he did lke me..im very shy btw and i get so nervous if i talk to him..soo do u think he mite like me?
by dance22lover on 10/12/2011 3:59:27 PM
I love the idea of a white one with gold detail(if possible) to go with a black dress! That would be absolutly gorgeous.If you can't do tat, then get one in her favorite color.
by MadiBoo:) on 10/12/2011 3:58:03 PM
It really depends on if you want it to be super matchy matchy or if you want it to pop. I would never do a plain black one, but black and gray or black and silver would be gorgeous (but you might have to use fake flowers to do that which could be a good thing, it will last forever, but nothing beats the real deal). The alternative, and the direction I would take would be to have a red one. what girl wouldn't love a red rose?
by sarahjanehaha on 10/12/2011 3:56:56 PM
It depends on her personality, if shes out going Id get her a bright color like yellow or if shes shy get her a nice rosy pink, idk if This would help but it's all I got!
by Toostie82 on 10/12/2011 3:47:44 PM
get one in her favorite color, since most everything goes in black
by lpstride on 10/12/2011 3:44:56 PM
If there's is one like this, I'd suggest a white rose. White and black are so cute together!
by EgirlH.97 on 10/12/2011 3:42:10 PM
Do like pink and cream roses and stuff! that would look great! red would look good too, but maybe a little dramatically serious ya know?
by josoccer5 on 10/12/2011 3:40:21 PM
Give her a white corsage with gold details. It woyld look beautiful with black dress. And its also very classy
by lourdezz on 10/12/2011 3:31:56 PM
He should get her something simple, that won't take away from the dress. A white rose would be pretty ,or if she is wearing colorful jewelry, he could get her a corsage to match her jewelry...
Good Luck! (:
by *dance_love_live* on 10/12/2011 3:19:51 PM
I work in a florist shop as my afterschool job right now, and i have to help make wrist corseges for so many girls' homecomings right now. my advice? anything will work w/ a black, so u have a HUGE selection to choose from! ask her waht her favorite color is if u dont already know, and work with tht. if u can, get the corsagee on a pretty braclet she can keep, even after the dance (thats what we do. guys who order them love it, cuz its like they're givng them a present too!) personally i like either roses or lillies, cuz they look so pretty and theyre so versitile! jst have fun w/ it and shell LOVE wat ever u get her.
by erynn14 on 10/12/2011 3:12:51 PM
u can never go wrong with a simple white flower or red rose!
by piedude on 10/12/2011 3:00:07 PM
i would say something like a rose (romantic) or something girly (pink/purple) to add a pop of color to the outfit. or even a pink rose corsage! good luck and have fun at homecoming!!
by sweetooth on 10/12/2011 2:59:42 PM
or you just do her fave color
by sparkle and shop on 10/12/2011 2:56:09 PM
if i was wearing a black dress i would want something that poped like pink
by sparkle and shop on 10/12/2011 2:55:43 PM
Do you have people who make jewelry around? They could make you one to match her dress! My mom made on for my cousin's girlfriend and it is absolutely beautiful!
by nerdisthewurd26 on 10/12/2011 2:53:04 PM
Since black goes with anything you could pick a classic pink carnation or red rose which would eliminate any tough decision making but if you want to be more original get her corsage made of different color leaves shaped as a flower. I know I would like that.It goes with the season and its unique. You could also choose an exotic flower like an orchid. Just whatever you do don't pick a flower that is yellow. Yellow flowers stand for friendship.Your girlfriend might not know that but you always want to be on the safe side. In fact you could get on of those blue and purplish roses. Those are soooo pretty. I think Katie would like that too. I hope this was of help.
by realchk on 10/12/2011 2:17:32 PM
BIlly should go to the florist or wherever he plans on getting her corsage, and ask which of them are the most popular, and ask the florist's oppinion on what goes best with a black dress. I would stay stick with something fun and light colored, to really stand out from the dress. Stick with a simple rose and some fun small flowers to decorate the outside. Also, don't shy away from leaves! Depending on which kind they can really make the corsage one of a kind and beautiful!
by littlemissdrama on 10/12/2011 2:07:10 PM
red or/and white or/and purple
by Swimgirl96 on 10/12/2011 1:54:52 PM
My brother got his girlfriend a blue corsage because it was her favorite color and she loved it!! So get it in her favorite color but if its like orange or something i would not pick that color try light blue or pink, but you could also use red or white.
i would choose white and go kind of classic, black clothes and a white corsage. white or red would stand out the most. Oh maybe if you got a white one and put some red ribbons in it! that'd be cute
Hope I helped!
