Wedding days are often considered the most important day of many people’s lives. For this reason alone, throughout the past and into modern day, numerous customs and superstitions have developed around the wedding event, in hopes of creating "The Perfect Day!"

A very common custom still honored today is in reference to a time-old saying, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence inside your shoe". So old is this that tracing it back to its origination is nearly impossible. The "old" is believed to be the friends and family attending the wedding. The "new" is represented by the couple themselves, as a "new" union. The "borrowed" is something from the families that is to be returned. Something "blue" is interpreted to represent the bride’s virginity. The sixpence can be any form of money, tucked into the bride's shoe, this to bring wealth to the union, both in monetary means and love.
