and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Here at Charlotte Mills it's all about the detail, the little bits of uniqueness which we like to think makes us stand out and offer something special to our customers. If you're new to our brand then you may not know that we cover everything from this well loved old tradition. Turn them over and you'll even find the leather sole is embossed with “Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.” We couldn't cover all bases of the tradition and not have it on the shoe somewhere - it's a check list we get excited telling everyone about. How do we cover it?
First off, our Charlotte Mills bridal styles are all hand finished with an original silver sixpence, this covers two parts of the tradition -the something old and you might have guessed...'and a silver sixpence in her shoe'. The 'something new' is the shoe itself which is Charlotte's own design and are all handmade in Spain. Then we've got the 'something borrowed' and 'something blue' - two parts of the phrase customers don't expect us to cover...but we do! The Something Blue we have options for, all our shoes have blue detailed on the insock - or we also have styles which are designed to add heart shaped clips and one of those options is blue but if you want to go all out we do have some Blue shoes! You also get a blue shoe box and inside that shoebox you'll find your something borrowed - we add in a little envelope which you pop a picture in after your big day and send it back to us for display in our boutique or in our scrapbook of brides. A little touch we think finishes off the whole experience, it's one of our favourite parts receiving mail with beautiful pictures of our brides wearing our shoes.
All this detailing is unique to Charlotte Mills Bridal shoes, we love to be able to offer something special and be part of our customers big days...even if it is in just a small way!
