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 depressing...so 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?
