since you're already using bootstrap by the looks of it, I recommend using bootbox.js. It's a modal dialog box (aka popup box) that works with bootstrap. It's highly customizable, good documentation, and IMO, really easy to use.

in your specific case, you would just put your form HTML that you already have in a hidden container, then, when the user clicks a button, use that html as the contents for your bootbox html.
