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.
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.
