    I would have them as part of a take away, but not as the favor if that makes sense. Like a candy buffet. you could have little clear boxes with them at each place setting as an after dinner treat and then they can grab their real favor on the way out. Becuase they are traditional I think you should have them. But they aren’t as fun as you could get

    I voted yes, but I think they’re fine at ANY wedding not specifically because you’re Italian.  Here not the most delicious favour but I (and most guests) care very little about favours. If you’re having a traditional Italian wedding I’m sure there will be plenty of amazing things to eat.

    I don’t know what Jordan almonds are.  If it is what I think it is we call them confetti candy.  I like them!  They are tied to the bonbonieres (favours) at all Italian weddings.

    I vote yes!  I think anything you are offering to your guests is very kind and considerate and posting about it means you care a lot about doing something thoughtful for your guests!

    If they’re the traditional choice and what you want, why not?

    Ehh.  I’d leave them there.  I’m just not a big fan of Jordan almonds.

    We received them as favors from my cousin’s wedding…and I didn’t eat them right away, but found them like a year later…and ATE THEM THEN.  They were still good, lol.

    So YES!

    I said yes but because I love them and being that I’mPortuguese I also have them part of my favor. We are doing apple jelly favors and I tied in a little pouch with some almonds. It’s not a Portuguese or Italian wedding without those in my eyes.

    Jordan almonds can be delicious, but they need to be fresh. A lot of the stuff available to buy out there is stale because it’s been sitting on the shelf forever.

    I hate almonds, and nuts in general, but Future Mother-In-Law insisted that we have them.  I conceded, not only to keep the peace, but also because there is at least a little bit of history/tradition/sentiment.

    She said we had to have five almonds at each place setting.  Each almond signifies something that your guests wish for the happy couple:  health, wealth, happiness, fertility, and longevity.

    Also, since an almond is bittersweet (I wouldn’t know, they taste disgusting to me) the candy coating signifies that your guests wish a sweeter rather than bitter life for the couple.

    We didn’t have any almonds left over, so I assume that those who didn’t like them left them and those who did like them took the extras.  They also weren’t our only favor, they were more a part of the place setting.
