Perfect Wedding Flowers In Arizona Heat

wedding flowersWhen preparing for a wedding, there are many elements to consider. Many brides have spent countless hours online looking at photographs of flowers and have a vision of the perfect bouquets for their day. However, they may not be aware of the seasonal nature of their chosen bloom, nor to the costs involved with a certain arrangement. The impulse may be to simply put out a bid for proposals and look for the lowest price; however one of the most beautiful and visible aspects of a wedding deserves a bit more attention.

An Arizona wedding is a beautiful event, but the temperature in Tucson should always be a consideration when planning your summer wedding. At Casas Adobes, we are passionate about educating our brides on the best blooms for the time of year, so that you can be certain your bouquets and arrangements will be available, withstand the heat and look beautiful throughout the entire day. Sometimes, our floral designers may make recommendations that are intended to ensure your day is as spectacular as it should be. Casas Adobes wedding designer and expert Sarah explains “I advise which flowers are available that will last in the heat of the summer; and which blooms will look the best. Many brides this time of year want peonies, dahlias, and ranunculus – but these blooms do not ship well to Arizona, and may arrive in unsatisfactory condition. I’m not here to take their money when they aren’t happy with the outcome. I tell them the truth, even though it might result in not getting their business.”

Tucson Summer Weddings

summer weddingsWhen planning a summer wedding in in this part of the country, finding ways to beat the heat are a top-of-mind topic. As Tucson’s premier wedding florist, Casas Adobes has provided the floral bouquets, centerpieces and arrangements for hundreds of warm-weather events. We would like to offer some suggestions for choosing décor and flowers that will make your special day as beautiful as possible.

Although looking through bridal magazines for floral inspiration may seem appropriate, choosing flowers is more a function of opting for beautiful but hardy blooms that will withstand soaring temperatures. Orchids, roses and calla lilies are popular choices for hot weather bouquets. Another insider tip? Use non-traditional greenery such as succulents, eucalyptus leaves and olive branches for longer lasting, non-wilting bouquets.

Couples should choose venues that can provide shade via porticos or covered patios; if the location does not provide shade, you may wish to provide tents, and frame the actual ceremony with floral structures that will cover and shade the bride, groom and officiate.

The flowers themselves should be kept in water until the very last minute; ceremony flowers, altar flowers and venue décor can be arranged in beautiful and unique vases and containers that provide all the needed water throughout the day. And just as flowers need water throughout the occasion to keep from wilting, so do your guests! Provide water in appropriate decorative glasses, or refreshing non-alcoholic spritzers garnished with your wedding bloom to make sure everyone stays stylishly hydrated.
