Something old,
something new,
something borrowed,
something blue,
and a sixpence in her shoe.........

It is often recited as the four "somethings", and not including the sixpence.

Each item in this poem represents a good-luck token for the bride. 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 is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family.

As for the colorful item, blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. to symbolize love, modesty, and purity.

And finally............a silver sixpence in the bride's shoe represents wealth and financial security. A sixpence is a coin that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967. It was made of silver and worth six pennies. Many sources say this tradition began in the Victorian era.

It may also date back to a Scottish custom of a groom putting a silver coin under his foot for good luck. For optimum fortune, the sixpence should be in the left shoe.

A silver sixpence symbolizes wealth and prosperity and is to be put into the shoe of the bride by her father right before the wedding ceremony.

These are genuine British SILVER sixpences.

This sixpence comes attached to a hand made elegant card, measuring approximately 7cm x 21cm . The card has been hand designed with a lovely shoe illustration and photo illustration of a vintage rose, embellished with a rhinestone jewel, and silver leaf - beautiful! The front reads:
'Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence for her shoe.'

The back is printed with the history more or less written as above, so the bride to be can read up on this lovely tradition.

You will receive one silver sixpence which I've cleaned and polished attached to the card.

This is a gorgeous card to present to a bride before her wedding day. The sixpence can be removed to be carried by the bride on her big day and replaced and kept as a keepsake afterwards.

The inside of the card is blank for your message and comes complete with a matching envelope. Created on quality off white/ivory card (slight variations in colour depending on card stock).

Each card comes in a range of colours; red, brown, pink, black ink. If you have another colour in mind to suit a themed wedding or favourite colours, please convo me for a custom listing!

Packed in a cello bag with backing board for a safe journey to you!

Thank you so much for looking!
