Gifts for the guests
You want to thank your family and friends for surrounding yourself on this important day of your lives. The tradition is not new but is shifting in its content. If dragees are always appreciated, the couple now prefer to be creative and offer their guests a gift that reflects their personality.
The monopoly of dragees
The dragees symbolize eternal love, fidelity and fecundity. They are the perfect gift that the newlyweds give to their guests, most often in a personalized bag. The guests take them as a memory and those who could not come to the wedding, receive them as a token of affection.
It’s a Greek legend that associates the dragees with Love. At first the Greeks dipped them in some honey before eating them. Then, a dramatic love story, like we all love them, made them into symbols of eternal love. Before his marriage, a young Greek had to return to Athens to bury his father. He promised her he would be back for the D-Day. Having misjudged the time needed for the trips, he returned later than expected. Meanwhile, his beautiful fiancee, desperate, killed herself, persuaded to be forgotten. The Gods, touched by this proof of love, then convert that almond tree that blossomed when the young man offered her his eternal love.
