A lot of brides ask whether sugared (candy) almonds (also known as Jordan almonds) are still a popular choice for favours, and the answer is a resounding yes!
I think with all of the other choices around, many brides still love the tradition of almonds.
You’re probably aware of the meaning of the traditional 5 sugared almonds – health, wealth, happiness, children and longevity.
Traditionally, the five almonds are tied in a tulle circle with a ribbon, however you can certainly play around with their presentation if you want something a bit more contemporary.
The Wise Bride offers a gorgeous traditional bomboniere of a silver frame. This can have your wedding message or names printed inside, and the almonds in tulle are tied to the back.
You can present the almonds in a number of contemporary style boxes. For something really different, you could try miniature birds nests – the almonds would look like eggs nestled in the nests, perfect for a garden or eco wedding.
Almonds also look great in clear cone boxes, or use a traditional tulle circle but decorate with a stylish ribbon or silk flower for a contemporary touch to suit your theme.
