As couples start wading into wedding planning, they’re met with a sea of potential vendors—both locally and online—and it can be understandably overwhelming. The proliferation of personalizing weddings down to the last detail means there’s more options available to you than ever before.
But that doesn’t mean you need to splinter every to-do on your wedding list off to a different vendor. Some of the best and most affordable wedding resources are hiding in plain sight at businesses you already frequent—like your local grocery store.
Here’s how your local Tops Friendly Market can be the streamlined wedding vendor you didn’t know you needed:
Custom cakes and confections. Whether you want to cut into a classic tiered showstopper or a smaller sweetheart cake, the Tops bakery team can make it happen. They work directly with couples from the onset to dream up a custom creation worthy of your wedding—both in style and substance. It’s a process just like at any standalone shop: They do tastings, and there’s multiple cake and frosting options to choose from.
Plus, their bakery also offers a sweet lineup of options to round out your dessert table, including cannoli, cookies and European pastries. A perennial favorite? Tiered cupcake towers designed specially for you—the perfect accompaniment to smaller cakes, and a great way to serve up variety for your guests.
All things floral. Your go-to stop for fresh flowers can also pull out all the stops for your wedding. The Tops florists have every part of your wedding covered, from bridal bouquets and boutonnieres to ceremony arrangements and centerpieces. Not only are they here to help turn your vision into reality, but the florists can also lend their expertise on where to splurge—and ways to save, like opting for in-season options—to get you exactly what you want at a price that fits your budget.
Platter pleasers. There’s a lot of people to keep happy—aka well fed—in the leadup to the big day. But thankfully, avoiding hidden hangry moments is a simple fix with Tops’ wealth of prepared food trays. Their Great Entertaining spreads mean you don’t have to worry if bridal parties are eating something while getting ready, because you’ll know they can’t resist the breakfast spread you laid out.
