Which flowers will cope best in the heat at my summer wedding?

Which flowers will cope best in the heat at my summer wedding?


Written by Katie Byrne


Karen Barnes of Interflora answers this reader's floral predicament...

 

The question: "We're getting married outside at the end of August - we're hoping for amazing weather! Which flowers will work best in the heat and out of water for that long?"

The answer: For elements like tablecentres and pedestal arrangements, I would always recommend that flowers are in some kind of water, no matter what the time of year or temperature. 

I'm bored of flower walls - what's a cool floral idea I can use at my wedding?

For bouquets, your florist will keep them hydrated until they are delivered, and may even provide something to keep them hydrated until you are ready to walk down the aisle if it's very hot. 

Harder flowers that do better out of water for periods of time include lilies, carnations, chrysanthemum blooms and any other tropical varieties such as anthuriums, gingers, heleconias and some varieties of orchid.

I can't afford peonies but am desperate to have them in my bouquet. Help!

Another alternative for table arrangements would be to display potted plants such as orchids and succulents, lavenders and roses, marguerites and delicate geraniums. These also make great keepsakes for guests to take home at the end of the day!
