This week our wedding decoration of the week is our lucky sixpence. Giving a sixpence to a bride on her wedding day is an old tradition, you may have heard the saying something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe. The lucky sixpence was originally given to a bride on her wedding day by her father to be worn in her left shoe as blessing of good health, wealth and to ensure happiness. These days sixpences are given to brides from a number of sources, from parents or friends at bridal showers.
