You’ve heard of something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… but do you have a sixpence in your shoe? That’s how the wedding poem goes, but many brides don’t know where to find the sixpence coin to put inside their shoe (and we’re not surprised, as they used to be hard to find!) Lucky for you, we found this sought-after coin at The Coin Art Company, who has taken the guesswork out of finding this good luck charm. They offer a beautiful gift which includes the sixpence wedding poem (personalized for the bride with her wedding date and color options), a genuine sixpence coin, a linen pouch, and a gift box for the bride.
This sixpence makes a lovely engagement gift for the bride, at her bridal shower, or on the morning of the wedding as she finalizes her “something old, something new” items. This is when she can add the coin to her shoe as an extra good luck charm. ;)
This unique sixpence wedding gift includes the following:
– Lucky British Sixpence vintage coin in the year of your choice
– Sixpence poem card with envelope in script font personalized with bride’s first name and wedding date
– Your choice of color for heart and border
– Linen drawstring pouch (2″ x 3″)
– Kraft two-piece gift box
– White heirloom thread ribbon and bow
In addition to this sixpence wedding poem and coin gift, the coin can be placed inside a keepsake coin art mat and frame kit, also available from this shop. Here’s an example of the art you can give to the bride with her sixpence coin to be displayed inside after the wedding. This is such a great idea!
Some interesting facts about the sixpence wedding tradition: these vintage coins (circulated) were minted from 1953 to 1967 and are considered a good luck wedding symbol to bring prosperity, love and happiness. If the bride wears one in her shoe, it is said to bring good luck to her marriage.
