WTL: JoandCompany's sixpence brooch

My offering to the PW ladies is my sixpence brooch.  If anyone would like to use it please let me know.


Silver Sixpence in your Shoe. [for luck] Historically (i.e., dating back to the reign of Elizabeth the First in the 16th century), the Lord of the Manor where the bride lived would give a sixpence as a wedding gift. Later, the custom evolved to that of the parents of the bride presenting a sixpence as a dowry gift. Since Victorian times, however, it has become more of a good luck charm to bring wealth and happiness to the marriage.


By the way, the sixpence is traditionally placed in the bride's left shoe.

Joandcompany, I just wanted to thank you for putting me on the list. I think this is such a wonderful idea and I think its really touching that those of us who are borrowing it are going to somehow share in each others' wedding experiences much like we do on here everyday. Most of us are complete strangers to one another yet we have so much in common at this particular moment in our lives. We're all laughing, crying, diy-ing, dieting, stressing, scrambling and doing a billion other things for one project, for that one day, our wedding day, that a lot of us have dreamed about our entire lives. It's the one thing we all have in common that "outsiders" don't seem to grasp sometimes (cough, cough...FI) and by sharing this with all of us, I think you're making that bond even stronger. It's a huge help to me to be able to read everyone's posts and look over all the biographies and realize how much we share. Before I found PW, I was really lost in the whole wedding planning project. I was being bull dozed by one of my friends who was trying to make a lot of the decisions for me and by being on PW, I've found a group of women who are all so different yet striving for the same goal. I've been inspired, I've been educated, I've been encouraged, I've learned to make decisions about what I want and I've been taught to stand my ground and make my day mine. I'm excited for us to all share your brooch because it will be a sort of comfort to know that I'm sharing my day with you guys and hopefully maybe the next PW girl will get that feeling as well. I dunno. Maybe I'm being overly sentimental right now. I'm PMS-ing. Lol.

Hello Joandcompany,


   I wanted to see if I would be able to borrow this for my November 14, 2010 wedding? I think this is the best something borrowed yet!


 


Thank you,

MiriamRogers & brittabee I sent a PM to everyone around your dates to make sure the brides can get the brooch to you in time.  I will add you to the list as soon as I find out it can get to you in time.

Would I be too hard for me to borrow it for my August 14th, 2010 wedding?!? If it is, thanks for trying though. not that anything would go wrong but I would hate to cut it close to a bride that already has dibbs... lol

Megan814 I wold ask thew ladies before and after you to see if it is possible.  Unfortunatly however I would not recommend it.  My shoes were missing for a few days after my wedding and I was late getting it out to mrs.carlo1934, so I spent extra to FedEx it to her in time.  But it didn't work for some reason it is still on the FedEx truck and her wedding was last Saturday!

=( i'm so sorry it didnt work out for u guys. i'm sure the holiday had something to do with the delay. hopefully its located and able to be placed back in rotation. jo maybe its better to keep the ladies at least 2 weeks apart for safety? it looks like this is how the majority of the list is anyway. keep me posted on the status of the brooch.

Oh no! I hope it is located soon. This is such a cool idea! Would I be able to be added to the list for October 10, 2010?

I love this idea! Would it be too hard to borrow for my wedding on 29 January 2011? I am in Australia but I love the idea of a PW tradition (hopefully it has been found as well - eeek!) :)
