Thought I would share my special little bridal details! I recommend that brides do this tradition. It's fun and something that you will always remember and hopefully will be able to share and pass down.
Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Something Old:We are still deciding but it will be something of my Moms.
Something New: Beaded Hair Comb
Something Borrowed: Garter
Something Blue: Wedding Date Stitched
Silver Six Pence In Her Shoe: From Nana & Mom
Something New: My beaded hair comb.
Something Borrowed: This was the garter Zack's Mom wore when she married his dad! The lace is from her Grandmother's wedding dress!
Something Blue: My Grand is going to stitch our wedding date with blue thread at the bottom of my dress.
A silver sixpence in the bride's shoe represents wealth and financial security. It may 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. My Nana actually has a six pence she received from her great aunt who went to England and brought it back for her. My Nana wore it in her shoe when she was married and my Mom also used the same six pence in her shoe when she married my dad!
I love this bridal tradition and am so happy with all of my something's! They are truly special and unique. :)
