"Why Are Candied Almonds Associated With Weddings?"
In ancient Rome, almonds were an
exotic and highly perishable item. Serving almonds to your guests developed
as a great way to display your wealth. In the 17th century, French confectioners
covered the almonds in hard sugar coatings for the royal court. This
royal treatment also preserved them and invented Jordan Almonds as we
know them today. The combination being at once sweet and bitter, became
a metaphor for life which is filled with both tears and joy. Traditionally
5 white confetti candies fill the tulle sachets for an Italian "Bomboniere"
wedding favor. Five almonds signify five wishes for the bride and groom:
Health, Wealth, Happiness, Fertility and Longevity.
We recently tied those knots and have tips, tricks and trials to share:
Shop around to get the best price
on whatever favor you select. Simply typing in "Jordon Almonds" into
a google search will give you an unexpected wealth of options. The edible
gold and silver ones are particularly stunning, but you can easily coordinate
with any color scheme. It's more fun for the guests if you have printed
the tradition surrounding the almonds on labels with the favors or in
your program. If you have selected candy of any nature and are going
to be having children at your wedding, plan for a few extra to be needed.
Don't forget to calculate wedding favors for those who will NOT be attending
your wedding day, but will have sent you a lovely wedding gift.
