The Story of the Penny Tree


The Penny Tree at BBB Lodge offers all guests the opportunity to place a penny for the promise of good fortune for the bride and groom. This ritual comes from a long-standing tradition relating to pennies and weddings.

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a lucky penny in your shoe." These traditions date back to Victorian times and still are carried on today. The practice of a father placing a sixpence (now a penny) in his daughter’s left shoe on her wedding day is to hope for the newlywed couple a lifetime of health, happiness and wealth. Today, in some European cultures, this penny is saved by the bride and given to her daughter on her wedding day.

When visiting Penny Tree Events, we ask you place a penny in the Penny Tree, with the wish of good fortune for the bride and groom or, if you desire, for your own good fortune.
