Do you know the tradition behind favours?
Many years ago a favour was always 5 sugar coated almonds in either a bag or a box. These almonds are symbolic and why favours first started.
The bittersweet taste of fresh almonds symbolises life, whilst the sweet sugar coating represents hope that the newlyweds will enjoy more sweetness than bitterness in life.
Five almonds are presented to represent wishes of happiness, health, wealth, children and longevity.
