    Do people eat cotton candy at the movies?  Popcorn seems more appropriate.  If you’re looking for a sweeter option, maybe give caramel corn.

    I suppose popcorn goes better with the theme… But I’d like to have cotton candy! πŸ™‚  But I’d be thrilled with either.

    @alotlikelove:  That sounds so fun! I think pop-corn goes with movies a little more, but I love cotton candy! Are you going to have children there? cotton candy makes for sticky children, but if it’s an indoor venu popcorn will likely get everywhere. Our church had a 30 minute movie activity for the kids (under 8, I’m not sure how the older ones did) and there was popcorn EVERYWHERE, so that is something to consider.

    Personally I like cotton candy a little better and find it a bit more fun, since I can get popcorn at home easily πŸ™‚ Good luck!

    Cotton Candy is a likely candidate for a carnival themed wedding. Of course, I’ve never  seen Cotton Candy offered at one of my movie theaters. Popcorn is what I always look forward to when I goto the movies. 

    EDIT: I also do love Cotton Candy, and many people do.. so I don’t think it’d be too out of place.. but if you go with a popcorn idea, you could have the set up with different flavors to add to popcorn (that’s what my movie theater has).

    @peachacid: YES! Popcorn is more obviously movie appropriate to me but I wouldn’t bat an eye at cotton candy being there and I LOVE COTTON CANDY!!!

    Also it might depend on at what point in the day you want to serve it. (Popcorn is noisier, messier, etc.)

    i vote for popcorn because you can do more things with it (there are different flavors, different ways to display it, ect.). caramel corn is my personal fav!

    You could do popcorn with lots of add-ons… like little chocolate candies or something? have a popcorn buffet.

    I love cotton candy but I’m voting for popcorn. Popcorn is messy, but it’s a cleaner kind of messy than cotton candy, which can stain mouths, hands, and fancy dresses and shirts.
