If you’re looking for a unique snack to have at your wedding, consider a popcorn bar!
Things to consider with a Wedding Popcorn Bar
As with all your other wedding details, having the right amount of popcorn at your wedding popcorn bar is critical. You want to make sure your guests have ample popcorn to enjoy. A few things to consider:
Other snacks? If you have other snacks and other hors d’oeuvres then you won’t need as much popcorn since people will tend to spread out to all the snacks.
How long to munch? The longer your guests have to wait, the more they will snack on. Also if you plan to keep the popcorn out all night, it provides a great snack to have while dancing the night away.
Vessel? How will your guests be treating themselves to your popcorn bar? Using larger bowls/containers will allow your guests to take more at one time, whether or not they consume it. If your bowls hold 3 cups, you may find yourself running short if you only allot for 1 cup per guest.
Ultimately, the amount of popcorn will vary for every occasion. A good rule of thumb is most people, with other snacks available, will probably go through about 1-2 cups per person.
Many of our wedding customers will stop into our store or order taster sized bags to use as samples. This allows you to taste the different flavors. Some try to use our large assortment of flavors as a way to match their colors in their wedding. Either way, remember when ordering for a popcorn bar, you’ll want some variety. Try to choose at least a variety in the type of popcorn for your popcorn bar. Not all guests enjoy (or can have for health reasons) candied popcorn and may prefer a traditional salted or savory (such as cheddar cheese).
When to order for your popcorn bar?
We want to make sure you have the freshest popcorn available to your guests. We recommend placing your order at least 2 weeks prior to when you wish to receive it. All you need to do is specify in the comment area during checkout when you want to receive your popcorn. This allows us to schedule your popcorn into our cooking schedule based on the delivery time. And we won’t process your credit card until we begin working on your order.
