That sounds so cool! I would have someone in charge of the machine, and buy one commercial bag of popcorn (they are as big as a 5 lb bag of potatoes) instead of the single pack ones you get at the store.  Ask a movie theatre close to you if you can buy a bag? Most use Orville Redenbachers popcorn.

Cute idea! I love popcorn, especially with flavoured topping. Are you thinking of it as a later in the night kind of snack b/c I think it will go over really well! Especailly after a few drinks 😉  And if you are inviting kids, they will go crazy!

We were planning a popcorn bar also, so I’d like to know the best way to do it too. I’d love to have an old fashioned popcorn cart, but I was starting to lean towards just doing large apothecary jars filled with different kinds of popcorn and having popcorn boxes on the table. My Maid/Matron of Honor pointed out that if we’re doing the reception indoors and we use a cart, the whole place is gonna smell like popcorn, so I’m not sure I want that.

were doing this as well for a late night snack. we wanted a popcorn machine but cant because our nephew has nut allergies and we need to be careful. were gonna air pop a bunch of popcorn and have flavor shakers and were yet to try the kernels butter spray but if not finding a way for melted butter. were using brown lunch bags for holders and i’m hoping to stamp them all first.

I think having a popcorn cart with someone to “man” it so it was fresh would be awesome. You could have the bar set up with different toppings – cheese, salt, butter, cinnamon sugar, chocolate, candy, etc.

Just throwing this out there… you can buy bulk gourmet popcorn on Amazon. Popcornopolis is a personal favorite of mine (they have TONS of incredible flavors) but even something like Popcorn Indiana is great and sold in grocery stores (and online). I really wanted to do a popcorn bar at our wedding but we already had enough edible touches so it would have been too much.
