PAB puts Myfruitylicious in the spotlight

Sometimes all you want is to add a bit of edible magic to your wedding day. What better way to do that, than with the mouthwatering strawberries dipped in Belgian chocolate from Myfruitylicious, based in Morganstown Cardiff. We caught up with Fiona at the busy fruity kitchen to ask some equally fruity questions.

PAB Events: Fiona, what is the best advice you can give a potential customer?
Myfruitylicious: It’s always lovely to surprise wedding guests with something different. A great option is a decadent chocolate strawberry display to wow evening guests or to accompany their fizz for the welcome drinks.  You could also think about a juicy fruity display with strawberry Bride and Groom favours. We can cater for all tastes for a modern day twist on the traditional wedding cake. Brides can also be creative with the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom gifts.  Why settle for flowers when they can be given a mouthwatering edible bouquet?

PAB Events: What are the main type of products you supply?
Myfruitylicious: We have 2 main categories of products: fresh fruit bouquets and chocolate dipped strawberries.
We specialise in creating handcrafted edible bouquets filled to the brim with yummy fresh fruit. All our fruit is cut, prepared and sculpted into flowery shapes and then arranged into flower arrangements.

PAB Events: Is there anything else you would love potential brides to know?
Myfruitylicious: We know that when it comes to a wedding day, nothing but perfection makes the cut.
Every one of our bride and grooms have very specific ideas and requests and we pride ourselves on offering a fully bespoke service to each and every one of them. We can even tint the chocolate to match the colour scheme of the wedding.

Planning a wedding? Don’t forget the hand over!

If you are planning your wedding I cannot stress enough the importance of planning a smooth hand over to someone you trust. But before you even get to that stage you need to create a wedding day itinerary so that your representative understands exactly what she needs to manage.

 Try to avoid any wedding day surprises!

Wedding planning surprises

At the very least the itinerary should include the following:

The name and contact details of all your suppliers

Arrival times for set up

Any special instructions  regarding where and how to set up

With many brides opting to ‘do it themselves’, I have found that wedding day co-ordination or wedding day set up services is proving more and more popular. Full details of these services from PAB Events can be found here

I often get asked, what is the biggest problem I have to deal with when planning a wedding. The general perception is that it is stressful, especially when planning a wedding that is not your own.

In some ways this is probably true, but in my 10 years of working with brides to create their special day, I have learnt some extremely solid tricks of the trade! This makes my job a lot easier and certainly stress free.

Should I have an engagement party?

Of course!

Being wedding and events specialists we are going to say yes every time. It’s the first time your friends and family with be able to get their glad rags on to celebrate your great news, so it is a good opportunity to give them a taste of things to come.

Engagement party ideas

Like any other party, engagement party ideas can be as lavish or as simple as you want it to be. In my opinion there is no need to over complicate things, whatever the party occasion. The priority for your guests is to celebrate with you. Throw in a sprinkling of good food and good music and you are pretty much on to a winner.

  • Food – keep it informal with a buffet or tapas type meal
  • Decor – checkout PAB Events black chair cover sale and give your venue that classy look. Finish off the overall look with small centerpieces
  • Entertainment – Hire a versatile DJ to ensure the dance floor s filled with all ages
  • Toasts – Everyone will want to toast the happy couple so be sure to include a toast or two during the evening. You can even do it with cocktails!

The important thing to remember is to enjoy yourself; this is the road that leads to your fabulous new life together!
