    I think the bar sounds fun and would work fine.

    If you do not do the bar, how about providing a “sampler” of all 4 flavors?  You could provide the packaging you show (so cute!) but put all the flavors in there, separating them.  I would want to try all of them and not have to pick one.  Yummy!

    I love the popcorn idea, but putting flavor options on the rsvp might confuse people. I would wonder if you were not serving dinner as well. I think it would be fun to scoop it into the bags myself, but I think prepackaged would be both cheaper and easier. You’d have to get scoops and containers for a choose your own, and people would be more likely to miss it, leaving you with lots of extra popcorn.

    This might not be a very good idea, but could you just choose two kinds for each bag (without getting your guests preference) and they could always trade? I would be excited for whatever kind I got, but if I wanted different it would be easy to switch. Popcorn sounds fun and I love how it ties in to your movie theme!

    I think asking your guests for their preffered flavors sounds like a make work project for you. If someone doesn’t like any of the flavors, I guarantee another guest will be happy to take the leftover bag.

    I think the popcorn buffet is a great idea and you should do that. Not everyone is going to run right up to the popcorn buffet, they will probably do it throughout the evening and there won’t be a long line. Also I like being able to pick my own flavor and how much of each I’d want.

    I love the idea of the popcorn bar, but if you didnt want to do that i would have them prepackaged with no flavor choice.  Just make them even amounts (like 8 people per table, 4 popcorn flavors, 2 people at the table recieve 1 flavor) then people can switch and try others.  or a sampler pack would be neat even though alit more work

    I wouldn’t put it on the RSVP because I think it’s more fun when the favor has some surprise to it, and a popcorn bar would be a very pleasant surprise!

    I think you could still use it as an escort card, but I wouldn’t give them choices on flavors. Either make each one a sampler pack, pick one standardized flavor, or just let the guests trade amongst themselves. You’re asking for a headache if you let them choose flavors on an RSVP card, I think.

    I think that you can use the popcorn containers as escort cards, and still have the guests use the popcorn bar. 🙂 The popcorn bar sounds liek a ton of fun, to be honest. XD But you can still have peoples names on the containers to use as escort cards (particularly if the popcorn is saved as your midnight snack)

    Super cute idea! 

    You could use those cute popcorn contains as your escort cards (names on tags) and just add something like “pop on over to the bar to fill me up!” on the tag.

    What about doing empty bags/boxes as in your pic for escort cards, and then the people can fill them with flavors of their choice from the popcorn bar to take home?

    ETA: I see SuprMe had the same idea.  And the saying is cute, so people don’t get confused and think you just gave them an empty bag lol
