This lucky sixpence is presented in a personalised gift bag with the something old, something new rhyme and makes a lovely keepsake for the bride.
As the traditional wedding saying goes 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe'.
A sixpence is a coin made of silver that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967. It is thought to be a British tradition dating back to the Victorian era, with each line of the poem representing a good-luck token for the bride. Traditionally, if she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy.
Something old symbolizes continuity with the bride's family and the past, something new means optimism and hope for the bride's new life ahead, something borrowed is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage carries over to the new bride. And finally, a silver sixpence in the bride's left shoe represents good fortune and financial security.
This delightful lucky sixpence for bride will be a lovely keepsake for any bride to receive. Beautifully presented in a pretty personalised gift bag, they are also supplied complete with a little gift card which is printed with the traditional rhyme.
