Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence for her shoe.
It was customary for the brides father to present his daughter with a sixpence to put in her shoe on her wedding day. Now, wonderful as fathers are on their daughter's wedding day, I think this custom passes many of them by these days!
This is a gorgeous gift to present to a bride before her wedding day and ensure that she will have the lucky sixpence (perhaps not in her shoe!) to go along with her old, new, borrowed, blue items. The ivory organza bag contains a genuine British sixpence along with a heart shaped sequin (blue, of course!) and the traditional verse printed on ivory card.
It is gift wrapped (see last picture) and ready to present. Gift wrap is a cello bag with either white (pictured) or pink flowers. Please let me know if you have a preference, otherwise it will be whichever I pick up first!
I presented one of these to a friend recently and she tied it to the inside of her dress. The bag can also be used to carry any other (small) items to complete the verse above.
Please convo for larger quantities and I will set up a custom listing.
For a more personalised gift option, please have a look at the framed sixpence keepsake gift.
The sixpence comes with a frame that can be used to mount the sixpence after the wedding day and is printed with the bride and groom's names and the date of their wedding.
It is also possible to purchase an upgrade option for this sixpence:
