How hot are we talking??  My wedding day was 40C and my bouquet held up pretty well, except maybe the fresias got a little wilted.  I had roses, mums, hypericum and fresia. 

Daisies, sunflowers, callas would probably do well.  Or tropical flowers like bird of paradise, and orchids.

Gratuitous picture 😛

@blinx:  Where are you getting married as in country wise? Different heats effect flowers differently.

A tropical heat- orchids or flowers from tropical locations like asia/polynesia would work best

A dry heat- try flowers from South Africa, Mexico and parts of Australia and flowers like sunflowers and bird of paradise. Australia also has some beautiful native orchids that could work.

These are some gorgeous native orchids.

A lot fo the native orchids fall in a natural cascade so look really beautiful in a bouquet.

I love these bouquets which are all natives

one, two, three, four, five

@j_jaye:  This is not a negative judgment, it just made me chuckle when I noticed that your number four link looks like an Edible Arrangement.
