Moments later, the shoe didn’t fit and she was not allowed to marry the prince.

    As a bit of an expert at folk magick, I can tell you it was something old something new something borrowed something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe. The idea is you are walking toward the money so you put it in the toe. So your path leads you always to the money. Americans would simply substitute a silver Mercury dime. They can be found for a few dollars at any coin shop.

    It definatley used to be a sixpence , it’s died out because we don’t have sixspences anymore.
    Shame a sixspence was a great little silver coin also put into Christmas puddings.
    And got you a nice little bag of sweeties when I was little.

    Wait! I didn’t have a penny in my shoe. I didn’t know about that part. Oh God, I can hear my marriage crashing and burning as we speak.

      I had a penny in my shoe at my wedding, and my marriage didn’t last. So maybe the key to a long marriage is NOT having the penny in your shoe. :)

    Yup. The old SO-SN-SB-SB & a PIHS. But the elders aren’t really into it, are they?

    p.s. In her wedding album, this pic is fifth in a series.

    What the others said.

    My wife of almost 14 years now had a six pence, though.

    Dad’s putting in the penny. It’s supposed to bring good fortune.

    It took me a second, but then I remembered: “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a penny in her shoe.” Grandpa (Dad?) has the penny.
