"Bomboniera" is a symbolic present given to the guests of a wedding by the end of the ceremony.
It is full of "koufeta" (sugar coated almonds).
The white colour of "koufeta" symbolizes purity,
the egg-shape represents fertility,
the hardness of the almond represents the endurance of marriage and
the sugar symbolizes the sweetness of future life.
Their number is always odd and indivisible just as the bride and groom shall remain undivided.
The "bomboniera" is often decorated with a small present that will always remind the wedding day to the guests.
