Although your day will always remain in the memories of you and your guests, keepsakes such as stefana for yourselves and boubounieres for your guests are simple and enduring.
Stefana: These are Greek wedding crowns, to be worn by the bride and groom during the ceremony.
Boubounieres / Favours:
Traditionally, here in Greece, boubounieres are given to the guests after the wedding service as a gift of appreciation for having attended the special occasion: Each lace wrapped boubouniere contains at least 5 sugar coated Jordan almonds which represent Health, Wealth, Happiness, Prosperity and Long Life.
At Greek weddings rice is always thrown at the newly united bride and groom amongst cries of ‘Kalo Riziko!’ This is a great touch for your photographs as the colours shine beautifully!
