Wedding guests will wait outside the ceremony venue for the bride to arrive and then follow the bride and groom inside for the ceremony to commence. After the wedding ceremony all guests are given small bags of rice which are thrown over the bride and groom as confetti.At the wedding reception each guest is given a Bomboniere. This Italian wedding tradition is the original version of favours and the Bomboniere are 5 sugared almonds wrapped in lace. The almonds symbolise health, wealth, fertility, happiness and long life.
