What color corsage should I get for my prom date?

Dear Sandy,

My prom date told me her gown is green with black trim.  What color corsage should I get for her?  I like red roses, but don’t want her to look like a christmas tree in green and red.   I’m afraid I’ll make a big mistake.  Please help me!

Dear TJ,

Rather than trying to match a flower with your date’s gown, give her a corsage with white flowers.  Roses come in white as well as carnations and several other flowers.
