Adding fresh flowers to wedding cake tiers looks beautifully romantic and it's a cost effective alternative to labor-intensive detailing like piping designs or handmade sugar flowers. The more intricate your cake design the longer it's going to take for your baker to complete it, which means you're paying for that time.

Most bakers will agree to work with your florist, that way you can rest easy knowing the wedding cake will match the centerpieces and the stems used are the freshest possible—and not to mention safe to come in contact with food. What are some of our favorite wedding cake blooms? We've got a whole list of them, below.
