Biznagas in Malaga for weddings

Images from
The biznaga is a symbol associated with Malaga, Andalucia. It is made by taking the separate flower heads off jasmine plants in placing them onto a natural spike head.
Thanks to the legacy of the Arabs, and the mild climate, jasmine is abundant in Southern Spain and it is rare that a house with a garden, courtyard, or a balcony, does not have jasmine to decorate and perfume the surroundings.
Wedding shops in Malaga and southern Spain sell biznaga gifts for the wedding guests
and many brides give them as a souvenir of the wedding.

When the guests arrive at the wedding, the biznaguero gives one biznaga to each lady
as a reception detail and you can imagine, dining in the open air on a hot spanish night with the smell of jasmine is an amazing experience.
