So my fiance and I are few informal. I mean for our reception meal it is a pig roast and other BBQ items. We are havign our reception in an old barn that is BEAUTIFUL! What I was thinking for the escort cards was an idea I got from another bride. Brown (or white) paper bags with the name stamped on them and what table they are going to be sitting at. At first I was thinking a candy buffet and have them get candy and go to their seats but I was thinking, when looking through the balck friday ads and saw a antique looking popcorn machine, what about popcorn instead of candy? My fiance and I LOVE popcorn and have a bag of microwave popcorn whenever we get a chance to hang out together and just watch a movie at home. The antique popcorn maker is only like $29 to purchase and like $79 to rent, so if I went with this idea I would just buy it then try ot resell it online.
What do you think? Is it different enough but not so much so that it is going to look tacky? Should I buy it then go through the hassle of reselling it, or just rent it? Ideas?
