We worked with Mercedes on our cake and it turned out beautifully! We asked her to use a PDF that we chose for our guest book and she replicated it on the cake perfectly - it was gorgeous and so unique. The only issue we had was that we had requested three flavors (one for each layer) and they all had just one flavor. We got two dozen cupcakes as backup and I'm glad as the main flavor we got had nuts in it and we had a nut allergy at the wedding. Also, there was some situation with the delivery and we had to pay an extra delivery charge for the cake. I'm not sure what happened, but I was pretty much over a barrel and had to pay or we would have had to pick up the cake ourselves. The delivery was going to be covered because we had all of our catering and flowers also handled by CM. Like most of the CM staff, email isn't the best way to reach them, but the results were amazing - and tasty!
One of the things that guests at our wedding raved about the most was our wedding cake! Central Market-Westgate did an awesome job decorating the cake the way I envisioned all the while being simply delicious. They were so easy to work with and super flexible. I couldn't be more pleased with their work and I'm really glad we had them as part of our wedding
We used CM for our flowers and cake. We did the arrangements ourselves to save money, but the floral manager was very, very helpful and special ordered large quantities in the colors and varieties we asked for. She also helped us pick out some flowers that went with we had ordered to help make our selections looks fuller and build on our initial idea. She even patiently added up everything we had thrown in the cart and created a label for the cashier to scan that included our entire floral order at checkout. She made the process really easy and we appreciated all her advice in the selections and help.
We had CM create a small 1-tier wedding cake for us that had a unique frosting texture. I sent them a few pictures from my phone when we placed the order. The cake looked and tasted great. Quite a steal for a small wedding.
When we first began the wedding planning process, flowers were the one thing we really did not have a clue how to budget for. After contacting a local wedding florist, my head nearly exploded when she told me their minimum for a Saturday wedding was $3200. THE MINIMUM! FOR FLOWERS THAT DIE! My husband and I immediately said “no flowers” at the wedding, but after doing some research, I decided to check out Central Market (Westgate location). SO happy I did. I met with Diana for a consultation. She had great recommendations for all the personal flowers and a great solution for the centerpieces. We were providing our own vases (wine and beer bottles), and since I really wasn't particular about what kind of flowers to use, she said to wait until the week of the wedding to see what they had in stock and we could choose from there.
The result was incredible. I have received SO many compliments on my bouquet and centerpiece arrangements. Guests who weren't familiar with Central Market couldn't believe a grocery store had done such beautiful work. To give those wondering brides, like me, an idea of price, Diana put together my bouquet, three bridesmaid bouquets, 4 corsages, over 10 boutonnieres, flower girl and ring bearer flowers, and arranged all the flowers for 17 tables (again, we provided the vases) for $850! And that included delivery to the venue!! I am so happy with Diana’s work and would recommend her and Central Market for any of your floral needs.
I wasn't picky about flowers, so I decided the best route to go would be to just make "messy" bouquets and centerpieces myself. The selection of flowers at this store is AMAZING--there was everything from a simple rose bouquet to tropical, spikey flowers I had never seen. So I used some of everything! I ran around like a crazy person grabbing some of everything and the nicest employee ever just followed behind me, keeping track of what I was picking so it could be rung up faster and putting everything in buckets of water for us to transport. I probably filled 5 buckets FULL of all different flowers and paid less than $280--I had expected it to be higher for sure by the way I was just grabbing without paying attention to price. They helped make suggestions for what went well with each other, color, heat tolerance, etc. I would highly recommend them for ANY type of event requiring floral needs.
Diana was very helpful in our initial meeting to discuss the budget and variety of flowers I could choose from. She was clear in her recommendations and let me know what to expect. We made adjustments as needed to my order along the way. It was a pleasure to work with Diana and Central Market at Westgate.
We used Donna for our floral needs and she was great! The bouquets turned out beautifully. I also loved that she used pearl and sparkle bracelets for he corsages. She was very nice to talk to and was always very helpful.
Our experience with Central Market catering department in Austin, TX, was nothing short of amazing. We had to customize our wedding cake and groom's cake and was not a problem with the department head, Vanessa. She went above and beyond to make our dream cakes come true, and was with us every step of the way. Her vision and creativity is unsurpassed. Thank you Vanessa and the Central Market team for making our wedding cakes the focal point of our wedding. People still can't stop talking about the beautiful presentation and taste of our cakes. You guys our aces in our book.
I didn't want to spend a thousand dollars on something that would vanish by the end of the reception so we opted with Central Market. The cake tasted wonderful and with a few additions from our florist it looked pretty too. I chose red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting for the wedding cake and chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting for the grooms cake. My husband wanted a Texas Longhorn cake and while our budget didn't allow for an elaborate design, they were able to make us a sheet cake with a longhorn on it. We decorated around hiis cake table, so it looked great as a finished product. We were happy and I felt like we got exactly what we paid for.
Noi at Central Market Westgate put together a beautiful bouquet of flowers for our church on our 50th wedding anniversary. I wanted an English Country Garden Bouquet of purple, pink and white flowers and the boquet exceeded my expectations - very beautiful
Outstanding selection of flowers for our wedding. We choose flowers without any Central Market assistance being offered which is why responsiveness and professionalism aren't rate 5 of 5. However, this didn't slow us down as we knew which flowers would work best for us. We were pleased.
For DIY brides, so much cheaper and you can find beautiful fresh flowers.
Our initial meeting was awesome! We got everything figured out quickly and in our budget. Couldn't ask for anything better.
I made my own bouquets with flowers I simply purchased there. However, they do have a full service wedding florist in-house. The flowers were beautiful and affordable from my perspective since I didn't get a ton. Lovely if you want to DIY or just need to pick up a few last-minute flowers.
Donna Foster at Central Market off 35th did my flowers for my wedding and they were absolutely stunning!!
Please, please DO NOT HESITATE - call Central Market right now for your floral needs. I was nervous because of the great price and the fact that florals aren't their only business, but that fear was completely unfounded. I had the most amazing experience with Central Market, and specifically Donna Burkhalter. They responded to every one of my requests, tried so hard to give me the peonies that I wanted (even though I couldn't afford them), but then snuck a few into my bouquet as a lovely surprise. The delivery was early, the price was amazing, they through in so many extra little touches, and everything arrangement and bloom was GORGEOUS. I was so happy with this vendor. Please, don't spend more money when you don't have to.
