Why Publix was our favorite vendor - Flowers and Cake

For those who don't know, Publix is a grocery store in the South-east. They did our cake and flowers, and they deserve to have their praises sung. Plus, I've seen a few "Has anyone ever used Publix?" threads.

They were well-priced, they followed instructions well, and everything showed up on time. We had no idea what we wanted for the flowers (other than orange and blue), but their floral designer made it work, and we loved it all. The day before our wedding, they sent us a thank you email that had me in tears--I was quite emotional at the time, but still. I couldn't recommend them enough. Oh yeah, and the cake was delish!

In the comments, I'll include pricing information and more pictures.

For those considering Publix, I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Used to grocery shop at Publix when FH and I were living down south for his grad school...

    Their coconut custard pie is insane. Awesome bakery for sure.

    Great post! Publix has wonderful cake & your flowers were beautiful too! (I would've used publix for cake if my caterer hadn't required I use her for cake too). I had no idea publix did such a great job on flowers though! Glad you got a good deal & quality products!

    I used publix as well. I knew for our DW in Destin we would use publix for our cake and cupcakes. Their cakes are delicious and they were very easy to work with. They even added our cupcake wrappers for us. Here is a pic of our cake.

    Ugh I wish we had a publix here in NY. I've only heard really good things about their cake. Didn't realize they delivered these things too!
