Not a florist but I got married on a very hot and humid day and 1 hour after I got my bouquet it was dropping petals.

May in Las Vegas will prob be drier, cooler weather so replacement bouquets might not be necessary but if you are having boutonnieres with petals, you might want to at least get a spare for your groom because those can definitely look tired after a few hours.

Las Vagas is HOT.

few things that might help you

ivory/white flowers especially roses every time they are touched their damaged petals get brown, especially in hot weather that will be visible a lot quicker. 

if you choose to only have one bouquet you will need to rehydrate it every time you have a second. You would need a small vase with water and if you are not shooting your flowers should be in there. Also not a bad idea would be to have a spray bottle and once a while mist them from outside. 

With that said… it might be easier and less stressful to get another bouquet. 🙂

If you’re on a tight budget..maybe you can use silk flowers or non traditional bouquet..that way you won’t have to worry about them potentially going limp on you (especially after 2.5 hours in the sun).  If you want to have beautiful flowers..you might just consider getting two bouquets.  Or you can take a spray bottle of cold water along the road. 🙂
