@jordyanna:  oh the constraints with an italian wedding… I hear you! I’m of italian background and my mum would flip if i didn’t have sugared almonds!

Italian custom can be that your bridesmaids go around after the ceremony with a basket of sugared almonds…or alternatively they can go around during the reception. 

I hate sugared almonds so im going to get the normal ones and the ones with the chocolate inside. 

hope this helps and you can find a compromise with the MIL!Tongue Out

Not overkill at all! If I was a guest at your wedding I would be thrilled! Ohh the little things.

@jordyanna:  I think it’s nice to have the jordan almonds as favors.  When FI’s sister got married, when his parents toasted the bride, they talked about why there were only five almonds in the favors – they represent wishing the bride and groom health, wealth, happiness, children, and longevity (I think!).  I think that’s kind of neat, and having them in a bowl kind of loses that.

Why don’t you do pretty favors with Jelly Belly’s and just add five almonds to each?
