Sometimes guests do not even bother to bring them home and are left on the tables. (PS That's really rude. The couple spend much time to choose the souvenirs and spend $10 or more, the least we can do is take them home and deal with them later.)
To avoid losing money, we'll find something that nobody is going to leave behind.
Wedding Souvenirs are a long tradition in many cultures, regarded as a thanksgiving offering. The first records of such gifts to several European countries was in the ages 16 to 18.
But it was not what was in the box was expensive. Cubes of sugar and confectionery are usually presented in a "Bombonera", a small glass box, precious stones, or porcelain. It was a sign of wealth and privilege to give wedding guests a gift or Souvenir for their assistance.
Once sugar became common, the masses took the custom of offering wedding souvenirs for the guests follow the original tradition.
Later, the nuts were used instead of sweets, which are said to symbolize the gifts of fertility, longevity, wealth, health and happiness the bride and groom want in their new life together.
Around 13th century, confetti or sugar and almonds introduced the combination of the two traditions of almonds and sugar in a unique gift.
