Something Blue.. And a Silver Sixpence in her Shoe!
“Tradition states that if a Bride wears a Sixpence in her Shoe on her Wedding Day that her Marriage will be blessed with Wealth and Prosperity.”
All those who love the couple will certainly make this wish/prayer for them. It is customary for the sixpence to be presented to the bride by her Father on her wedding day. In the hustle and bustle it can be forgotten by Dad so it often falls to the Mother of the Bride or even the Maid of Honour to think of this detail. Sometimes the bride even buys one for herself!
This English Sixpence (dates range from 1948-1960 circulated) comes on a 2×3 inch blue gift card. It is presentation ready and can be mailed to the bride, inserted into a Bridal Shower Card or given to her in the moments before she walks down the aisle.
Why not start a family tradition! The Bride can save the coin and re-affix it to the keepsake card to be saved for the day that she can pass it down to her own daughter.
