Silver sixpence range

 

The old sixpence coin was always known and remembered as “the lucky sixpence” and had a long tradition as a lucky wedding charm.

Bride/Groom sixpence card

 

Something old,

something new,

something borrowed,

something blue,

and a sixpence in her shoe………

It is often recited as the four “somethings”, and not including the sixpence.

 

Each item in this poem represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. “Something old” symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past. “Something new” means optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead. “Something borrowed” is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family.

As for the colourful item, blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. to symbolize love, modesty, and purity.

Our range comprises a gift card for the bride and groom, which can be given to each other. or more traditionally from the father of the bride. The front carries the traditional poem.

Lucky sixpence place card
A sixpence is a coin that was minted in Britain from 1551 to 1967. It was made of silver and worth six pennies. Many sources say this tradition began in the Victorian era.

It may also 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.
All our sixpences are original coins and cleaned.

Looking back to 2013

So, before moving on to our 2014 wedding invitations a look back to of our favourite wedding invitations of 2013.

Awedding in Paris

A wedding in Paris

We liked this one as the actual wedding invitation had highlights and the Eiffel Tower created in a gold foil to add an extra piece of luxury and uniqueness to the invitation.

For the save the date invitation we took inspiration from the Eiffel Tower theme to use the tower as the letter A in Save the Date and so tie the 2 pieces of  the wedding invitation together.
