Chocolate Brides: To Jump the Broom or Not???

Recommended Posts

Hmm good question lol. I think it is about 3/3.5 feet and I was planning to put it in a plastic bag and put it in my dress bag. If not it will definitely fit in my big luggage that I was going to pack for the honeymoon. aefc253f-b53f-64e2.jpg

I really like this. I wasn't going to jump the broom but you have really inspired me. And the link to Etsy was great. I just custom ordered my ring bearers pillow, guest book and pen. I will add the broom as well.

We jumped the broom at our wedding and I'm so glad we did. A family friend who could not make the wedding made our broom as a gift. It was absolutely beautiful. In our family, an elder sweeps all of the negative energy away prior to the couple jumping the broom.  Our pictures turned out so well, we choose our broom jumping pic to be the cover of our album.

We jumped the broom and it was great! I ended up putting it in my dress bag and carried it on the plane with me. It just needed some fluffing when we arrived and it turned out great. Glad we were able to incorporate this tradition in our wedding.

I jumped the broom 25 days ago!! I drove myself crazy searching for an affordable broom. I ended up purchasing a broom on Amazon for less than $20. The same broom is at JoAnn's if you have one near by. To personalize the broom I had my guest write their wedding wishes on strips of ribbon that I then tied to the handle of the broom. It was a hit!

Jumping the broom is one of the oldest traditions, my grandparents and parents did it. My fiance and I are doing it as well. Its kinda hard to bring a broom though. Someone mentioned Pier 1...going to see if they carry something like that still.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
