If your wedding plans include Irish customs, then don't miss this "Irish five pence" gift set. What custom does it fulfill? It relates to the Irish version of a well-known rhyme that states, "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and an Irish Five Pence for her shoe." (Yes, the very original verse said, "six pence, but in it evolved to five pence in Ireland.) The purpose is to provide the bride with a symbol of wealth that not only included financial wealth, but for her married life being filled with a wealth of happiness, joy, and good luck.

Since the Irish five pence is no longer made available as a currency, here's a substitute. This charming set includes not only the coin, but the poem and a beautiful white pouch to place the coin in. Then she can place it in her wedding shoe before walking up the aisle. Why not start her luck with this meaningful Irish five pence gift set? The packaging is artful with script and shamrock embellishments. Your attention to Irish custom details is bound to touch the heart of the bride.
