I got my broom custom made and it's BEAUTIFUL! I'm going to try to post a pic. I figure I may do the make and take at Michael's so that I'm not running with the damn thing back and forth trying to figure out what I need or wanting to add something I don't have at home. Just easier all 'round.
Here's my broom undecorated!
I figure I may wind some wide ivory ribbon around the grooves in the handle, then attach the greenery/flowers around the base of the bristles.

A popular custom is to pass out colorful ribbons to guests and then have each guest tie their ribbon on the wedding broom before it is jumped as a symbol of their wish for the couple. You can even pass out markers with the ribbon and have guests actually write their blessing on the ribbon if you like. The broom can be passed around during the ceremony and then collected by a designated person. An easier method is to have guests decorate the broom between the ceremony and the reception and then jump the broom at the reception.
