In Reply to: Origin of Jordon Almonds at Weddings anf how to present them posted by Kay on March 25, 2000 at 20:41:13:
: Was told that it is tradition to give Jordon Almonds to wedding guests at a weddingC can you please explain the reason, and how and who presents them to the wedding guest.??
Jordan almonds represent the bitter and the sweet times a couple will share in their married life (the almonds being bitter and the candy coating, sweet). The almonds should be arranged in odd numbers (3 or 5) and placed in netting, tied with a satin bow. They are presented to the wedding guests at the reception before they leave. However, I have also seen them handed out in the church after the ceremony, probably for guests who will not attend the reception.
