Cultural Wedding Customs: Greek Wedding Gift Ideas?

Q.

My friend is having a traditional Greek wedding and I'd like to give her something that is traditionally Greek (in addition to the gift I purchased from her registry, of course.) What can I do?

A.

Food is a great focal point in Greek weddings -- in some Greek villages, women bake sourdough breads and decorate them with beads and blossoms. It's also popular to offer the newlyweds a cake made of honey, sesame seed, and quince. If you aren't afraid to experiment, find a Greek cookbook and spend a few hours in the kitchen. That way, you'll surprise your friend with knowledge of her ancestry and learn something yourself in the process.
