Popcorn bars for weddings are fun and trendy! We’ll tell you everything you need to know to create your unique popcorn bar and why choosing the best popcorn makes all the difference for you and your guests. Here are 3 of our best wedding popcorn bar examples and ideas for your special day.
So What Is a Wedding Popcorn Bar?
Over the years, weddings have definitely had their trendy decorations, fancy themes, delicious foods, and dancing. Everything from surprise rehearsed wedding party dances, to modern rustic country themes, we’ve seen it all over the last decade.
One aspect of weddings that will never come to a halt is the food. There must be food at a wedding, but the trend is now focusing on the dessert table. Today’s couples choose to display and offer more than just a cake. The biggest trend right now is popcorn bars for weddings.
Popcorn is a treat that nearly every person enjoys and it makes the perfect display at any wedding, regardless of theme, color or dietary restriction. The best thing about popcorn is that it can be colorful, flavorful and it makes great wedding favors.
Why Should You Have a Popcorn Bar at Your Wedding?
Let’s take a look at 3 of our most successful Wedding Popcorn Bars to give you the background information about why you should have a popcorn bar at your wedding.
1. Christine and Kyle’s Wedding
As childhood friends, Christine and Kyle grew up in the same neighborhood and eventually became lifelong partners. They chose to be married in the Gold Room at the Arizona Biltmore Resort. On their special day, Christine and Kyle wanted a little something extra.
Prior to their wedding, Christine and her mom came into My Popcorn Kitchen to sample our flavors. This allowed them to see the different flavors and colors and how they would look together. For this couple, they wanted to symbolize their move from Phoenix to Chicago with our Sonoran Blend and Windy City Blend.
The color was also important to the theme of their reception, so they sampled and chose some of our Fruity Delights flavors to coordinate with the bridesmaids’ dresses and venue. They ended up with a bright mix of our Grape, Cotton Candy and Vanilla flavors which we combined together to form a colorful and super flavorful taste.
However, they didn’t stop there. They also chose some of our cheese, classic, buttery, and chocolate flavors from our Popcorn By the Bag category on this website.
The selection was a hit with the guests, and they were able to take their favorites home. The couple opted to utilize our door-to-door courier service partner to deliver the popcorn to the venue on the day of the wedding. What you will notice is how beautiful the gourmet popcorn displays. With over sixty flavors and a variety of colors, it will look phenomenal on your wedding day.
2. Jamie and Ryan’s Wedding
Choosing a more casual theme featuring an outdoor reception in a lovely courtyard, lovebirds Jamie and Ryan also wanted to have a popcorn bar on their wedding day. They came in before their wedding to sample various flavors. The goal was to personalize the offerings to their favorites. We love when anybody wants to try a flavor or twenty, and we highly recommend all wedding couples come in to sample.
Jamie and Ryan settled on their top three popcorn flavors that they proudly displayed in cloth lined baskets with custom flavor labels. Guests were able to scoop out their favorites to enjoy all evening long. A take home snack was also encouraged.
3. Samma and Zach’s Wedding
Outdoor weddings are definitely amazing most of the year in Phoenix. Samma and Zach chose an outdoor venue that served as both wedding and reception, and chose a popcorn bar to make their wedding fun and festive. All of their decorations were classic and elegant. The popcorn station followed this theme.
The couple also came into My Popcorn Kitchen beforehand to try some samples, and choose the flavor that best represented them as a couple and their future. They bought our larger size popcorn bags and then hand scooped them into custom designed party favor bags. It made a beautiful display and was easy for the guests to grab and go. There was no detail left behind in this gorgeous wedding.
