Adding some tradition to our wedding. In traditional Greek weddings, sugarcoated almonds are called koufetta. They are placed in little bags in odd numbers and are served on a silver tray. Because odd numbers are indivisible, this symbolizes that the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided. Tradition holds that if an unmarried woman puts the almonds under her pillow, she'll dream of her future husband.
In Greece it is tradition to gift wedding guest what is called a "bomboniera" to thank them for sharing this special day. Each bomboniera is a little puch made of tulle usually with 5 or 7 (always odd numbers, so they can't be divided like marriage) sugar coated almonds. Each almond represents Health, Wealth, Happiness, Prosperity and Long Life.
