    I think the original saying is "and a sixpence in her shoe," but US brides use pennies because they don’t necessarily have a bunch or British change sitting around.  🙂 

    One of the photographers we interviewed tried to sell us on the idea of staging pictures of my dad putting a penny in my shoe before the wedding.  We didn’t go with him, but I wore strappy heels for the wedding.  Where was my dad going to put the penny?  It seemed like "one more thing" to me so I didn’t do it.  For some people, it completes the tradition, so then they might want to do it.

    I believe it used to be a sixpence in your shoe but because sixpences are harder to come by a penny suffices.
