You should actually ask your florist… they will have a good idea of what is more or less heat tolerant.  It also depends on how the bouquet is put together.  If it’s just tied stems, then it will wilt faster.  You can put it in water up until your photos, but pretty much as soon as you take it out the stems start to seal – so putting it back in water later in the day doesn’t really do much good.  If your florist uses a bouquet assembly that incorporates some florists’ foam, the flowers last longer, as they have a little water. 

Lisianthus are a nice, heat tolerant flower.  I had lisianthus, roses and anemones as the main flowers in my bouquets, and they lasted quite well (in July) but they were the kind with the florists’ foam.  Also, my florists did not have them in the cooler the morning of the wedding – she said that the sudden change in temperature is a big shock, particularly to the lisianthus, so they were better sitting out (in an air conditioned room). (They actually looked pretty good three days later when we came back from our mini-moon, and they had just been sitting on my dining room table all that time.)
