How can I differentiate my own wedding bouquet from my bridesmaids' bouquets?

There are several ways you can make your the blooms in your wedding bouquet look slightly different than your bridesmaids' bouquets. One option is to simply go bigger. Ask your florist to add a few more oversized buds to your bouquet or experiment with a different shape. Another idea is to play with color. Make your bridesmaids' buds monochrome and yours bursting with color, or vice-versa. Finally, you can also change the look (and price!) of a wedding bouquet simply by the flowers you choose. Design your dream wedding bouquet and then ask your florist to recreate it for your girls using less pricey floral counterparts.

What Kind of Flowers Will Stand Up to the Heat at an Outdoor Summer Wedding?

I'm having an outdoor summer wedding—are there certain types of flowers that will hold up better in the heat?

Certain flowers are definitely more hardy when it comes to high temperatures, so look for flowers that are found naturally in warm climates like succulents, orchids, and birds of paradise. Garden flowers like tulips, hydrangeas, and lilacs are more likely to wilt in the heat due to their hollow stems that can't store water. No matter what kind of flowers you end up choosing, you can also take precautionary measures: store your bouquet in a refrigerated space before walking down the aisle and give your buds some TLC during the reception by misting them with water or setting them in a vase while not in use.
