: 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.??
The Almod present the bitter and the sweet.. of life and especially marriage. Also they are used in the fourty days koliva. At my wedding the were tied in fluted netting and attached to crystal bells with ribbon and all the ladies got one as a keepsake at their place setting when they sat foir dinner.
You can do anything...
But WHITE are preferable for weddings.. at my sons baptizim we used blue and blue and white tulle. Looked sharp!
