No bride is complete without attending to the Irish wedding custom that completes the last line of this well-known rhyme, Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and an Irish Five Pence for her shoe!' We must confess that the original rhyme stated, 'a sixpence,' but in Ireland it evolved to a five pence. This Irish wedding custom symbolizes wealth, not only financial wealth, but a wealth of happiness and joy throughout her married life. Good luck is another aspect of this Irish wedding tradition.

Although the Irish five pence is no longer in circulation, we offer this adorable gift that includes the coin, the poem, and a lovely little white pouch that the bride uses in her left shoe. Gifting the bride with everything to bring this Irish wedding custom to life is a great beginning of good luck and joyful wealth. Artfully packaged with beautiful script and shamrock filigree, the bride can't help but feel touched by your thoughtful kindness. Modern brides stress out in preparing for marriage, but participating in this old Irish wedding custom brings a sense of calm and connectedness with those who've gone before.
