2018 EDITION 19 POPPY HAND-CRAFTED POPCORN (Asheville and Black Mountain;; 828/552-3149) Popcorn isn't just for the movies, people! Whether you're looking for a munchable snack for your rehearsal dinner or wedding reception or you're craving a preciously packaged wedding favor, Poppy Popcorn has more than enough to chew on. Flavors—there are 23 as of press time—range from sweet (like cotton candy) to savory (like olive oil and rosemary), and couples can choose popcorn packed into see-through baggies (clear or novelty style), mini popcorn balls on sticks (AKA "popcorn pops"), popcorn made into edible décor (think sticky, sweet popcorn shaped into a Christmas tree), or order popcorn packed into tins. Order three months or more before your event. MOST POPULAR FLAVORS: Asheville Mix (white cheddar paired with salted caramel), chocolate- peanut butter, pimiento cheese FRENCH BROAD CHOCOLATE (Asheville;; 828/252-4181) This is the go-to sweet shop for Asheville locals. While everything is handcrafted, exquisitely made, and divine (expect a massive variety of artisan chocolate bars, caramels, pastries, and cakes), know their decadent—and boy, do we mean decadent—truffles will rival you and your sweetie as the stars of your wedding show. Schedule a tasting to narrow down what flavors you'll tempt guests with. MOST POPULAR FLAVORS: fresh raspberry, salted honey caramel, Buddha VORTEX DOUGHNUTS (Asheville;; 828/552-3010) Vortex Doughnuts has been treating Asheville locals and visitors alike to their award-winning delights since 2014. And a bonus for weddings? With options classic (Old Fashion), meaty (Maple Bacon), and vegan (Strawberry Glazed), there's something for every last guest on your list. If you need more than a few dozen, order a month in advance. MOST POPULAR FLAVORS: salted caramel, Vortex (cinnamon sugar with dark chocolate swirl), all berry glazes
