No, hadn’t even thought to do it…but that is SO sweet that your friend went to all that trouble for you!  What a great friend.

I’ve heard "and a shiny penny for your shoe." And – – just to give myself another fun thing to prepare, as a bridal-obsessive — I got a cute penny stamped with our wedding date, off Etsy. It cost $5.50, which is kind of hilarious for a… penny. But it has a hole for stringing it on a chain, etc, later, and it has the wedding date stamp, so…. justification, justification….

Aw that is really sweet of your friend, what a touching gift!  I’d never heard of this part of the tradition, just another thing to add to the list lol.  I may go to etsy too, since I have no friends in the UK!
