Jordan Almonds are quite traditional and I would say fine as a favor but keep in mind that many people don’t care for the taste. I think that you can find faux jordan almonds which are actually chocolate.

Food is usually a hit. If it works with your budget, go for it!

If you are Greek you definitely should. I am giving the guests 7 (i think that’s the number) of jordan almonds to them because of the greek tradition (i am greek, lol).
I am also giving them homemade cookies. I will be getting help from a lot of people and they are going to be great.
You should then package them in those lunch bags with the ribbon sewed around the edges (i’ve seen it in someone’s recent bee post)

I was just going to suggest that you could maybe even make cookies. Food is a hit.

It’s also totally OK to skip the favors, if you don’t find any that inspire you. Favors can be fun and festive, but if they’re stressing you out or stretching your budget, I’d say forget them entirely, rather than give something you’re not thrilled about.

It’s always a great stand in. Anything eatible would be appreciated I’m sure.

We were going to skip favors entirely, but my mom wouldn’t hear of it! We’re Italian and we HAD to have the Jordan almonds. I thought it was a nice tradition and my family appreciated it.

I think anything edible is always a hit and appreciated. I’ve found a ton of edible treats for around 300-400 dollars (but I am having 200+ people at my wedding). I’m not sure what your budget is or how many people you are having but I’m sure you could find something cute, fun, and tasty without breaking the bank too much. Jordan almonds specifically? I think they are 50/50 with people loving them or hating them.

Since you’re in a money bind, I would suggest skipping the favours altogether — unless you REALLY want to have them. In which case, of course Jordan almonds are fine! =) That’s what they were invented for, to give as wedding favours (especially in Italian and Greek culture). Wrap 5 or so almonds in tulle and tie with an inexpensive ribbon. Ta-da! If you’re big into the symbolism of the almonds, include a little tag that talks about what the almonds mean. =)

I love jordan almonds! They are one of my favorite candies. I think that would be a nice favor.
