White and rigorously odd number, sugared almonds and bonbonnières are given to guests as thank-you gift and souvenir of Your special day together.
Traditionally tailored in precious tulle, more often today in small lace bags, sugared almonds are always in odd number – usually five – to signify what should never fail in the couple’s life:
– long life;
Customs are that bride and groom go around tables after the wedding cake has served to guests. The groom carrys a silver tray with sugared almonds and the bride serves them with a silver spoon, always in odd number.
