Fresh almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life. 

ITALIAN WEDDINGS: Five almonds signify the five wishes for the bride and groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.

These almonds decorate each place setting as favors. 

GREEK WEDDINGS: Sugarcoated almonds in traditional Greek weddings are called *koufeta*. Odd numbers are indivisible, symbolizing how the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided. Tradition holds that if an unmarried woman puts the almonds under her pillow, she’ll dream of her future husband.

MIDDLE EASTERN WEDDINGS: Candy-covered almonds, or mlabas, are considered aphrodisiacs and are always on hand at weddings and other important celebrations.

Jordan Almonds make great wedding favors. Wrap a cluster in tulle tied with ribbon, pack a few in boxes (made of sugar, straw, paper, metal, or plastic), stuff some in decorative bags, or pour a handful into champagne glasses or glass bowls.
