I think it really depends on what type of flowers you use in your bouquet.  Some flowers are hardier than others.  I’ve also heard of florists adding water to the stems and then wrapping the whole thing (so the base is covered).  Or, you could put the bouquet in a jar with some water at the bottom so they take a drink and stay fresh.

The bouquets should be fine for that time span.  If I were you, I would just keep little jars/vases of water nearby to put the bouquets in when you aren’t using them in the pictures.  I would also definitely keep them out of the hot sun while you are flying kites.

what type of flowers are you having in you bouquet?

If your using something really hardy like calla lilies you will be fine. I would place the bouquet in fresh purified water while your not using it to allow your flowers to take a drink between all the photos (like during the kite flying). Good luck

Pick a hardy flowers (and not flowers that can easily wilt e.g. hydrangea) and have vases with water to referesh them whenever possible. Hopefully, your florist will have a good recommendations. I had roses for pics for 3+ hrs before my ceremony and they were fine.

Definitely depends on the type of flowers you use, but to be perfectly honest…I had a mix of hardy and fragile flowers in my bouquet

(you can see it here)

We started with photos at 11am, had a 4pm ceremony and more photos after at 6pm.  It looked great the whole time.  I didn’t notice any wilting at all!
