I do's

DIY Candy Bar. Choose your favourite candies and sweets from our Bulk Foods Department and display in different vases for a yummy treat your guests will love.


DIY Wedding favours. They don't have to be extravagant. Think about the theme of your wedding and pick a favour that goes with it, like a small succulent for a backyard wedding or a local jam in a mini mason jar for a rustic wedding.


We do's

Leave catering and the cake to us! The cake will be one of the most photographed accessories for your wedding. Our Cake Designers will make the perfect cake to fit in with your wedding day.


Flowers are an essential part of your wedding day; work together with our experts to create something beautiful. Our Floral Designers will wow you with their ability to create stunning bouquets that suit your style and theme.


Wedding Cakes

Our expert Cake Designers know that your wedding cake needs to be so much more than just delicious. It also needs to be a feast for the eyes, an expression of your style, and a memorable part of your special day. Our Designers are committed to making your cake gorgeous and unique.

  • Budget

  • Number of guests

  • Any other pieces of inspiration


Making "piece" with your guests

  • When it comes to shape and size of your wedding cake, our experts can do almost anything! Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when choosing what size to order:

  • Number of guests

  • Offering seconds

  • Other dessert options

  • Size of the cake slice


Below is a general Cake Serving Guide that can help you determine the perfect wedding cake size!














6 trade secrets to choosing a cake

  1. Make sure you love the taste.

  2. Get creative with the design; bring your ideas and inspirations!

  3. Consider venue and weather (no one wants a melted cake).

  4. Pay for delivery and set up (trust us, it's worth it).

  5. Don't wait until last minute to order your cake; we recommend 6-9 months.

  6. It's your day; don't let too many people provide input.


6-9 months in advance is ideal. Need it in a pinch? Let us see what we can do! 


Wedding Flowers

Get ready to fall in love with your wedding flowers. Whether you lean towards the traditional or are inspired by the unconventional (the sky is the limit!) our incredible Floral Designers can create dazzling wedding flower bouquets and arrangements to suit any wedding day vision.












Know your budget:
While most wedding planners will tell you to budget about three to five percent of your total wedding budget for flowers and décor, that number depends on your priorities and wedding day vision. If you are hoping to stretch your floral budget, consider using big blooms rather than tiny flowers, and choose flower varieties that are in season, like the following:


Tips for getting what you want

Sample your style:
Flowers come in an incredible array of colours, sizes, and shapes, which our Floral Designers can arrange into any style. To prepare for the consultation, flip through magazines and browse online to collect ideas of bouquets and arrangements that appeal to you. Narrow down your floral choices by keeping in mind the overall look of your venue, the colours of your theme and bridesmaids’ dresses, and the overall feeling you’d like to create. Here are a few styles to consider:
