So what is a Gourmet Popcorn Wedding?
One aspect of weddings that will never cease to exist 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 much more than just a cake. The biggest trend right now is a Gourmet Popcorn Wedding.
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 even makes awesome wedding favors.
Create a fun and light vibe for everyone and you will be sure to have a wedding that not only you, but everyone will remember!
Here are some tips to make your party pop:
Choose a variety of flavors
Giving your guests many choices to decide from gives everyone an option to be unique. We recommend at LEAST three flavors. This is a super great way to break the ice and get people talking. The most popular flavors for a Gourmet Popcorn Wedding reception are Cheddar Cheese, Caramel, and White Cheddar. The reason they are so popular is their familiarity, most people have an expectation of what these flavors will taste like. Wildcard flavors such as Birthday Cake, Blueberry, Smores, or even Yellow Cheddar with Sriracha, that are less familiar to your guests are a great way to add an extremely personal touch of personality to your special day.
Be Conservative or Go Crazy
Everyone has flavors they are familiar with, but the real magic lies in getting people to step outside of their comfort zone because it creates excitement. Try something sweet, spicy, cheesy, or play it safe and go with the traditional flavors.
How Much Do You Need?
People tend to eat more if they’re having fun. Adult beverages and party music is guaranteed to make party goers eat more and you can’t forget the fact that the little ones love popcorn too! If the party is more formal or stuffy, you probably won’t need as much.
A Gourmet Popcorn Wedding gives you the most flexibility. Three to five flavors gives your guests a chance to mix their favorite flavors. Most will eat an estimated amount of 4-8 cups of popcorn, sometimes even more depending on if alcohol is in the equation or if the party is less formal.
Individual bags are labeled with cravings labels or you can even customize labels specifically for your wedding. Guests have the option to eat their treat at the party or take the popcorn home to eat later. Each bag is heat sealed to keep the popcorn as fresh as possible.
Bags of popcorn will stay fresh for up to two weeks. Avoid extreme temperatures and drastic temperature swings. Store away from direct sunlight.
We highly recommended that you:
- Request samples
- Order your favorite flavors at least two weeks in advanced
- Speak to our wedding order coordinator about special flavor requests
