2. Buy Popcorn in Bulk.
Buy popcorn in bulk to fill up the bags. This is the best brand to purchase, based on reviews (important!) and price. In addition, you get a huge quantity of bulk popcorn for favor bags and it comes with a sanitary scooper to easily fill your bags.
3. Fill the Bags and Seal Them.
Make sure you wear protective gloves when handling the popcorn. Fill up your bags a few days prior to the wedding day and they will stay fresh, as long as you seal them with a sticker or tape of some kind.
Here are two options.
Round Favor Stickers
Simple round thank you stickers work well to seal the bags.
Tape to Secure the Bag
Alternatively, you can use gold washi tape like this:
Place the favor bags in a basket and invite guests to take one. A simple sign like this will ensure your guests don’t miss it! Sign by SweetNCCollective and oh-so-beautiful!
And there you have it! As you can see here, it’s so easy to make your wedding favors especially when it comes to popcorn. It’s a delicious treat your guests will enjoy at the wedding itself or on the way home.
