A common English tradition, we're reviving this symbol of happiness, luck and fortune as a pretty card containing a lucky sixpence that can be given to a bride. The Lucky Wedding Sixpence is given to the bride from many sources: it is a popular bridal shower gift, a gift from the bride's father, mother, sister or friend,and is also a keepsake and family heirloom handed down from mother to daughter or father to daughter. The Lucky Sixpence was originally given to the bride from her father and placed in her left shoe to symbolize good health for the couple as well as great wealth and happiness. It is then typically passed down from generation to generation in a family.

As the saying goes:
"Something Old, Something New,
Something Borrowed, Something Blue,
and a Sixpence in Her Shoe."

Somewhere during its travels to the U.S. from overseas, the last line got dropped, but we love the pretty sixpence and all it symbolizes so we've decided to revive it. When you purchase this listing you'll receive a lucky sixpence card with a genuine lucky sixpence gently "tucked" into the shoe, a complementary envelope and a slip of paper explaining the tradition all ready to present to your daughter, friend, niece, etc.

Colors available are gray, blue and pink, but we can likely accommodate other color requests, so please just ask!
