The tradition of the bride's father placing a sixpence coin in his daughters left shoe on her wedding day dates back to the victorian era.
It is said to guarantee the newlywed couple a lifetime of health, happiness, wealth and wedded bliss.
Something old, something new, something barrowed, something blue. And place this silver sixpence in your shoe.
