I Do! Traditional Wedding Foods You Shouldn't Pass Up
Honey is a powerful marriage symbol everywhere, the sure sign of its momentary sweetness. While the officiating priest recites blessing mantras at a Hindu wedding, the bride’s parents welcome the groom by offering Madhuparka, yogurt mixed with honey.

The common Moroccan wedding dessert, almond and honey briouats-- fillo cornets of almond paste scented with orange flower water and drenched with honey—are meant to start the marriage sweetly but also nobly because almonds and orange flower water are considered the exalted foods of royalty.
