Some people are single, some are married. But when a bride gets married, she wants to have good luck.
So a special tradition started in Britain in 1883. It recommended the bride wore these objects on her wedding day:
Because the old object connects the bride to her family and her past.
Because the new object represents her new life.
Because the item borrowed from a married woman brings good luck to the new bride.
Because in the Victorian era, blue represented purity, fidelity.
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Because the sixpence is a silver British coin that represents prosperity and protection.
That’s why the British rhyme says:
and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
