I know that every bride is supposed to have "something old, something new, somehting borrowed, and something blue"
I have no idea where this came from or where i heard it but it was "something old, something new, somehting borrowed, something blue, and a penny in your shoe"
Have any ideas?

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.

Apparently you can buy a real sixpence for your wedding from this website: http://www.weddingsixpence.com/. Huh.
