Wedding bells seem to be ringing on a regular basis this season. And Murdick’s “sweets for sweethearts” have never been more plentiful or delicious.
According to wedding-industry statistics, the most popular month for weddings is June. August, May, July, September and October follow June as the months in which most weddings occur, in order of popularity. And those are exactly the months that we are open and turning out fresh sweets daily.
These past few weeks (we opened officially on May 1), we’ve been consulting with various event and wedding planners as well as brides and grooms. We’re helping them with their wedding offerings as they select one of the sweetest of experiences for their big-day guests — our Original Murdick’s Fudge SweetBar, brimming with everything from taffy and toffee to brittle, caramel corn and, naturally, Pure Michigan fudge!
♥ Our SweetBar options are almost as varied as our 16 Sweet Summer Mackinac Island fudge flavors! A favorite option is the Mackinac Island SweetBar, which includes bite-size fudge and English toffee served on a marble slab; and jars and baskets of treats from which guests can scoop their own brittle (peanut, cashew and pecan), taffy and caramel corn into their own bag.
This option also includes a take-home, 1/2-pound slice of fudge favor (choose from some 16 flavors, including Chocolate Peanut Butter and Double Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt), in an iconic Original Murdick’s Fudge box, or a ¼-pound piece of fudge in a personalized 3- by 3-inch white box.
♥ Another option includes bite-size fudge served on a marble slab; and jars and baskets of caramel corn and taffy from which guests can scoop their treats into their own bags. This option also includes a take-home, ½-pound slice of fudge favor (choose from 16 flavors), in an iconic Original Murdick’s Fudge box, or a ¼-pound piece of fudge in a personalized 3- by 3-inch white box.
♥ For those who want just a fantastic favor, we’re ready to roll with 1/4-pound individual fudge favors that we think look great placed at dinner-table place settings or offer as special take-home favors.
♥ A couple of recent memorable SweetBar and SweetFavor projects include one at Mackinac Island’s Mission Point Resort that was island-classic all the way … and another for a metro Detroit wedding that featured a Gatsby-esque theme. That particular bride and groom were all about 1920s glamour and we at Original Murdicks Fudge came through with elegant packaging adorned with a few elements of which The Great Gatsby’s Daisy and Jay would approve!
Our wedding and special event coordinators are available for complimentary consultation and are happy to work with you on one-of-a-kind personalization options and themes. All SweetBar options include display set-ups that are custom designed to coordinate with your weddings and special-event theme and colors.
All Original Murdick’s Fudge sweet treats are handmade on Mackinac Island using only all-natural and gluten-free ingredients.
