How to Make the Popcorn Favor Weddings L O V E

1. Pick your favorite design from their shop & place your order.

It can even be customized with your names and wedding date! *Note: This also makes a cute bridal shower favor, too. Take care of it all right here.

You’ll also want to order some colorful washi tape for sealing the bags. It really adds a fun pop of color to your favors. Any color which coordinates with your wedding will do! These are also from Mavora:

2. Order your popcorn in bulk — or make your own.

Pre-Made

Each favor bag can hold up to 2 cups of popcorn, so keep that in mind when ordering. Here are some helpful links:

Buy Online

o Pre-popped rainbow popcorn in bulk

Note: Rainbow popcorn has a very sweet and distinct taste. Try some before you commit just to be sure.

Or, try…

o this delicious caramel popcorn I’ve tried myself from Costco. So good!

o this kettle cooked popcorn that has great reviews (and is available in an 18 gal/180 cup bag — awesome!)

o this popcorn site has a ton of different flavors you can order, or you can shop by color here

o or this buttery popcorn that has great reviews and is also available in a gigantic bag

Buy In-Store

o Head over to your local Costco or Sam’s Club and buy their varieties of popcorn in bulk

o Find a bulk food store near you and ask about large orders

Make Your Own

Here’s a recipe for how to make colorful popcorn at home. It looks so good and makes me want to make my own! You’ll want to use a bulk jug of plain kernels (like this) and an air popper. And that means you’ll have an excuse to have a popcorn maker in your cabinet, which will get plenty of use on movie nights.

To save you even more time, just pop these rainbow kernels or this option in your air popper. Full disclosure: I’m not sure how colorful these kernels are, so you might want to give it a go before you decide to make 100+ favors. Or, try the do-it-yourself recipe so you can really customize the colors.

3. Assemble the bags.

Use a handy-dandy scoop to fill your popcorn bags. Seal with your washi tape — and make sure you seal them tight. Air can cause the popcorn to get stale. Place bags in a sealed box away from heat and light.

4. Relax.

Cross “wedding favors” off of your to-do list and celebrate, preferrably with some leftover popcorn you stole from the bulk bag you ordered and a tv marathon on Netflix. Andrew and I have been into The Amazing Race reruns lately. If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend it. It’s a fun way to travel the world from your comfy couch — and root for your favorite teams!

5. Present to guests.

Place your popcorn favors on a table where guests can easily see them. (Want them to stand flat? Mavora Art and Design has a tutorial for diy favor closures). A ‘please take one’ sign displayed on the table will encourage guests to take the bags to-go or enjoy at the reception.

What do you think about popcorn favors for weddings?

What do you think of popcorn favors? Will you be making your own? If so, what kind of popcorn are you using? I love the colorful kind, but I’m really into kettle cooked lately. There’s this popcorn from Costco called Angie’s Kettle Corn and I love it. But every time I go to get it, it’s gone. And then when I don’t feel like it, it’s there. Costco is great but I swear, sometimes they get you hooked on something and then it’s gone! So keep those eyes open if you head over and see it. That kettle corn is the best I’ve ever had.

Topsail Island Engagement Session

Nicole tells us, “Nick’s grandfather was a marine at camp Lejeune when he met Nick’s grandmother, a local from Wilmington. Years later Nick’s family bought a vacation home in Topsail and have been visiting since Nick was a little boy. Nick first took me to Topsail a year into our relationship and I immediately fell in love with the place. Since we have decided to get married in my hometown of Aiken, SC, we choose Topsail for our engagement session because it holds such a special place in both of our hearts. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how the photos turned out! We will cherish them and those sweet memories from that day for a lifetime! Thanks a million to Eric for capturing our love so beautifully.”
