If you’re stressing out over what type of food to serve your guests, consider this fun and brilliant idea: a wedding popcorn bar. If you time your wedding between meals, your guests won’t be as hungry and will still have some delicious popcorn to munch on during the reception. Here’s how this super fun idea works.
Start with a ton of popcorn. You have several different ways to do this, including purchasing large bags of plain popcorn and emptying them into a big, decorative container. If you want to spring for a little more, you can get an old-fashioned popcorn machine (or rent one) so the popcorn will be fresh. Then, you’ll want to set up a bar area so you can add fun other ingredients.
Give your guests a large choice of popcorn seasonings to make their treats just the way they like them. Some ideas include nacho cheese seasoning, chili cheese, kettle corn seasoning, cool ranch, or a sweeter option, apple and cinnamon. Seasonings can be purchased at specialty stores. You can also add drawn butter for your guests to use as well.
You’ll want to place bags out so each guest can fill a bag with popcorn. You can go with fancy bags or just plain, brown or white paper bags. Don’t forget the tools guests will need, like a scoop for the popcorn. You can also add an area for drinks. To keep it simple, place glass bottles in a large barrel filled with ice so guests can choose whatever they’d like.
This is a great idea! Everyone loves popcorn and this is a stress-free, inexpensive way to make sure your guests have great munchies at your reception.
