Sixpence or Horseshoe?

Why  give a Sixpence? The tradition is for a bride to wear  ‘something old, something new’. It comes from the rhyme, ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.’

A silver sixpence is a traditional good luck wedding gesture. 

Customarily, the father of the bride placed a sixpence in his daughters shoe.  A symbol of prosperity, love and happiness in her marriage.

Why give a Horseshoe?  Legend was that 10th Century Archbishop of Canterbury, Dunstan, outwitted  the devil.

He asked Dunstan, a former blacksmith, to shoe his hoof.

But when Dunstan realised it was the devil he nailed the shoe on as painfully as he could.

So the devil begged for mercy and Dunstan agreed to remove it. But only on condition that the devil agreed never to enter a place where a horseshoe was hung over the door.

A horseshoe is thought to help with fertility.

To retain good luck a horseshoe should be hung  with the shoulders pointing upwards. Hung downwards all the luck in your marriage would fall out.

 Confetti

The tradition of throwing confetti over the bride and groom originated in Italy.

Before paper confetti, flowers, petals, grain or rice were thrown. This would bestow prosperity and fertility.
