Thank you all for the lovely comments! I am so happy! :)
There are more traditions... In greek engagements there is a man of honour or a maid of honor. In mine, maid of honor was my best friend Mary :)

she wore to us our rings and she gave me and Alex presents :)
The little white candy are bonbons. Almonds covered in sugar, are given in engagements, weddings and baptisms. :) The bonbons that were in the same spot with the rings, as a tradition, are given by me to my female friends who are free (not engaged or married). They should put the bonbons under their pillow at night and maybe dream of their future husband :)
