A Penny in Her Shoe

Ideas & Inspiration for Your Perfect Wedding Day


Bridal customs are often passed down through generations, leaving the origins of the tradition obscured. The tradition of a bride harboring a penny in her shoe hails from a Victorian British rhyme: "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe." Though sixpences haven't circulated as currency since 1967, many brides still keep lucky pennies or specialty coins in their shoes on their special days.
