Hmmm – my Fiance is Italian and I’ve never heard the cookie thing. We’re serving late-night cannolis and we have to get those little Italian candy-covered almonds as favours for the guests. But it could be regional! There are so many Italian communities in North America – I think local traditions have definitely developed.

I’ve never heard of it for weddings but it is very common for other occassions. As long as the venue is OK with it I think it’s a great idea.

I just went to a wedding with a cookie table.  And yes, the groom was Italian.  But I’ve seen it often at wedding and not only when the bride or groom was Italian.  Maybe it’s a Pennsylvania thing?

Anway, if someone wants to make you cookies?  That can only be good.

I am in the Buffalo,NY area and it is definitely an italian tradition to have cookies. I am not at all italian but my Fiance is half so this is new to me, but happens in all of his family weddings.

My cousin did this, and his Italian bride was from Long Island, NY. Also, who doesn’t love cookies?!

@playingdaisy: We’re rocking the cookie bar too! FI’s dad’s family are old school Italians and they were pretty gung-ho about the wedding cookies. His Italian gma was telling me that where she’s from they usually had huge piles of cookies instead of a wedding cake & the bow tie cookies are supposed to symbolize good luck.

IMO you can never have enough goodies!
