A Wedding Tradition : Jordan Almonds

Did you know that Jordan Almonds are not only popular wedding favors, but they are also a long-standing wedding tradition? The bittersweet taste of the almod is said to signify life, and the sugar coating is added to ensure a sweeter marriage.

Traditionally, couples give guests five almonds to represent:

  1. health


  2. wealth


  3. longevity


  4. fertility


  5. happiness


Typically almonds are placed at each guest table setting as favors. They are presented in wedding favor boxes or tulle bags (called bomboniere) and are often personalized with the couple's names and wedding date.

You can also include a popular Jordan Almond poem to let your guests in on the tradition!

Jordan Almonds for Thee
Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat,
To remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
Five wishes for the new husband and wife:
Health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life!
