jordan almonds

i have been going crazy trying to decide if i should have favors at the wedding.  my first thought was no--why more useless stuff?  and who really remembers favors at a wedding anyway?  then, i was going to do a small potted fern for everyone that would double as part of the centerpieces.  but, while green, it was really expensive & the idea of someone taking a plant home & it just dying on their mantel was a bit being of italian origin & loving all things italian, i thought of those crazy jordan almonds.  in italian weddings, traditionally you give away five almonds, which signify wishes for the partners: health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity.  we talked about gold jordan almonds in a nice hemp or natural bag.  is it a cheesy gift or a nice nod to my italian roots?  what do you think?
