I am not a flower expert, but I would try tropical varieties that grow in the heat naturally.  Look into birds of paradise, proteas, flowering ginger, and other desert-type flowers.  These might also go very well with your colors and modern theme.  You should probably consult a professional florist, even if you don’t hire them.  There is nothing dishonest about this since many brides interview multiple florists.  You can also make sure to keep your bouquets in a cool environment like a fridge or cooler right up until the ceremony, and then at the reception you could place your bouquets in vases with water to keep them from drying out or wilting in the heat too much.   For centerpeices, you could try potted cacti, keeping a desert-theme. Good Luck and let us know what you decide to do!

Why not also looking into fake flowers made with fabric? I’ve seen pictures of soome that look just like real ones.

Do you absolutely want flowers for the centerpieces? Because if you have a modern style you can also play with fruits like a glass bowl with oranges and lime and a fushia ribbon. 

I like sparklehorse idea of th tropical flowers. My husband offered me a bouquer of tropical flowers for my birthday a few years ago (directly shipped from Hawaii) and it was stunning.

I love the fruit idea!  That would look so great for summer and it might not be too expensive.
