Ramadhan and dates (kurma) are synonyms.
Sunnah nabi makan kurma. Hadis Saad r.a: Rasulullah s.a.w pernah bersabda: “Sesiapa yang memakan tujuh biji kurma di antara La Bataiha (dua tanah tidak berpasir di Madinah) pada waktu pagi, maka racun tidak akan dapat memudaratkannya sampai petang”. more hadiths and benefits of dates from here.
The most famous brand dates in Malaysia market is Yusoooof Taiyoooob (baca tone menggoda dan berbisik k~) but there are more than that.

Dates are quite common during fasting months but not to forget, these healthy fruits can be one of your wedding favour. Pack them nicely, tie with ribbon and tag. Lots of flavours and design to choose. I found this link.
They sell oat, almond chunk, white almond, cinnamon, coconut and definitely original dates.
