Bride's Lucky Wedding Sixpence
Bride’s Lucky Wedding Sixpence
It’s not the perfect wedding unless your beautiful bride has a lucky sixpence for her shoe. Remember the famous verse:
Something old, something new,
Every woman dreams of her perfect wedding day – the perfect dress, the perfect ring, the perfect husband and a future full of lovely possibilities. A bride embraces tradition on her wedding day to make it ideal. So start with something old (to symbolize the tradition and loved ones of the past), something new (to symbolize optimism for the new husband and wife), something borrowed (from a happily married friend, ensuring that good fortune will pass to the new bride and representing that friends and family can be called upon by the new bride), and something blue (to symbolize love and fidelity). But make sure that the bride you love walks down the aisle with her lucky sixpence in her left shoe – ensuring health and wealth in the marriage to come.
Sixpence coins such as these were first minted in England in 1816, and have been minted from three different metal compositions, sterling silver, 50% silver, and a copper-nickel alloy.
While minted in different metal combinations throughout the years, the luck a sixpence bestows upon the bride never changes.
After the ceremony, the bride can tuck her sixpence into its special velour bag and carry it, along with the luck it brings, with her wherever she goes as a married woman.
A bride deserves the fullness of good tidings for her wedding day and her life as a wife that follows. Complete the rhyme and fulfill the tradition. Make sure she walks down the aisle with a sixpence in her shoe.
