Why put a sixpence in your shoe during a wedding?
There is an old tradition in the form of a poem that says the bride at a wedding should have: Something Old [symbolizing continuity] Something New [offering optimism for the future] Something Borrowed [reminding that one can depend on friends and family] Something Blue [symbolizing purity, love and fidelity] And a 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.

Depends on what kind of terrain and what kind of riding you are going to be doing. Some horse owners tend to leave their horse's shoes on to protect their hooves, but this can… cause the horse to slip and injure itself. If you take your shoes off the horses hooves still grow as much in the winter as the summer so they need a regular trimming. The best way to go is a boot or pad that helps the horse not slip and protects their hooves.
If you are trying to remove a stain from white satin wedding shoes, you can use a gentle detergent like Woolite. Using just a bit of the detergent, rub the stain gently with a… small, soft cloth (or you can just use your fingers). Using a circular motion works best. Once the stain is removed, use a clean cloth dabbed in water to rinse the spot. Then use a towel to pat the spot dry. Then allow the shoes to air dry.
Many shoe stores carry white shoes and you are best to go to department stores or even independent shoe stores. If you want satin then you are going to have to buy the shoes a…t a wedding shop. If you want your Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids to wear satin shoes then they will have to be dyed (by any shoe repair shop) to match the color of their dresses.
Basically, anywhere that you are able to keep them. They are an important symbol so its is best to keep them.
