Anyone "Jumping the Broom"??

Mom and I will decorate it ourselves from Hobby Lobby and Michael's. I'm likely going to go with ivory ribbon with gold edging, maybe some shells hot glued/scattered through the bristles. The ribbon will follow the wrap pattern around the handle. I think with this, less could be more so I'm not gonna try to get too complicated with it. I'll probably stand it up in the bag with my second gown/TTD dress to take on the flight. It's kinda heavy.
I know there are some ebay stores/sellers that have them pre-made, as well as a few web sites. Google or yahoo search would probably find some for ya.

I've been snooping on a lot of websites and seeing pictures of couples jumping over a broom after their beach ceremony in Jamaica. Does anyone know the significance of this?
To me, it just seems like an awesome, cute idea. But there has to be some deeper reason that couples do this, other than the fact that it seems cool.
I'm also guessing that there's some significance of mixing two different coloured sands together afterwards too?
I'm such a newbie at this wedding symbolism stuff!

The sand cermony takes the place of the unity candle...two becoming one. The Unity Sand Ceremony
You can check the web for better explanations. Hope this helps

Our programs read, "Each of our guests have been given a shell to hold, bless and protect Tammy and Frank. In your mind and in your heart, pray that their marriage be blessed. Let us cast our shells into the sea and as the ripples touch and and intertwine with one another, may ourlove also touch and intertwine to spead love and good wishes to all around us." May God bless us all! After the minister reads this he is to tell us all to cast our shells into the sea. The photographer has been asked to please get a great shot of this. My fingers are crossed.....
This was a llittle different than the traditional sand ceremony or the unity candle. Not to mention that I found shells prepackaged at the dollar tree store. (Gotta love them) I just bubble wrapped them and they are all packed in my suitcase!!
