Bridal bouquets, ceremony flowers, corsages, boutonnieres and centerpieces can be designed with a vision in mind. Bring in photos of what you like and allow Tops’ floral designers to help get you there. Or Tops has beautiful pre-set designs for some items, which makes planning even easier.
The bridal bouquet is the star of the show. From a darling nosegay or a classic posy bouquet, to an elegant cascading bouquet, Tops can help design a bouquet that fits your personality and complements your wedding dress.
Just like standalone florist shop, Tops floral can also obtain specific varieties and colors of flowers that fit the season. Floral designers look at specific sizes, shapes and even scents that complement one another and create a one-of-a-kind floral theme.
Once the flowers are set, Tops bakery consultants can help you plan the sweetest part of your wedding – the cake. Whether it’s a tiered wedding cake or a sheet style, Tops bakery can create a wedding cake that is as customized as your flowers.
Sweet, dreamy cakes
Tiered rounds start with a classic white cake. Filling options include luscious fruit such as lemon, cherry, raspberry, strawberry or blueberry. Fresh fruit with whipped cream is another option, or choose a Bavarian cream, classic vanilla or chocolate buttercream filling. Each layer can have the same filling, or you can mix it up for each layer.
Frostings include traditional buttercream, almond buttercream, chocolate buttercream and even a seasonal buttercream flavor such as fresh mint for a holiday celebration or watermelon for a summer soiree. Tops cakes can also feature a whipped almond icing (Chantilly) or cream cheese frosting.
With so many cake, filling and frosting options, Tops bakery consultants can help pick out different flavor combinations until you get just the right tastes for your special celebration.
Wedding cake decorations can incorporate your personal style. From traditional to more modern and unique designs, bring your ideas to Tops and meet with a cake decorator or bakery manager to plan.
One tried and true practice is to use a tiered cake for presentation and sheet cakes for cutting and serving. Sheet cakes offer additional flavor choices of chocolate, yellow, marble and carrot. That can be a way to let the groom have his personal tastes reflected.
Cupcake tiers are another popular trend that provides guests with delicious flavor combinations while adding a bit of fun to your celebration. Cupcakes come in yellow or chocolate, with icing of your choice.
If you’re in need of a full dessert table, Tops offers delicious bakery choices such as cookies (chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and candy pieces), decadent brownies and cannoli.
From traditional flowers and desserts to something more unique, trust Tops Friendly Markets to help you make your wedding day special.
Saving with style
Wedding costs can get out of hand quickly, but you won’t have to sacrifice quality to save with Tops Friendly Markets florals and cake.
Bring your ideas to a Tops floral designer, and they can recommend a solution that works within a budget. They’ll let you know where to spend on certain items, like roses, and where to save with less expensive flowers, like carnations.
The same goes for cakes. Tops can offer ideas on how to make it affordable to serve larger groups without overspending or compromising on quality. Two- and three-layer wedding cakes start at less than $200, with a basic two-tier cake that serves up to 64 guests starting at just more than $100.
Tops can also work within a shorter time frame than most standalone florists and bakeries.
With about a three-week window, Tops floral can arrange to obtain specific varieties and any special supplies for your wedding flowers. With flowers on hand, it could be shorter.
Cake and dessert orders can be filled within a week—or in some cases within 48 hours.
