fi and i are seeing a judge at our hotel at 2 for legal wedding, taking photos in the afternoon then having our catholic ceremony at 6 (here in mexico legal and catholic weddings seperate)
if the bouquet arrives at 1, will it still be fresh looking for 6? or will the heat make it start wilting by then (will be around 30 degrees centrigrade in cancun?)
or is it better to have it delivered after photos in time for catholic ceremony? Thanks!

It totally depends on the flowers. Something like tulips will start looking tired quite quickly for example – best always to ask the florist what are the best options for longevity. If the flowers you want are prone to wilting, consider silk ones instead – these days they are very realistic. My florist sprayed something on my bouquet which kept it looking great for the whole day.

My florist hid built-in water sources in our bouquets and they lasted all day! See if your florist can do that maybe?

@newname_99: Calla lilies should be fine, just make sure you keep them in a vase right up until your ceremony. @Cariad is right, you’re going to want to make sure you get flowers that will stand up well in the heat (I wouldn’t recommend gerbera daisies, tulips, or hydrangeas).
