|One of the most popular choices of brides is to fill favor boxes with Jordan almonds. These fancy, sugarcoated candies are rich in flavor and cultural meaning. Fresh almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life. The sugarcoating is added with the hope that the newlyweds' life will be more sweet than bitter. Five almonds signify five wishes for the bride and groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity. Odd numbers are indivisible, symbolizing how the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided.
