    I have always planned to jump the broom at my wedding (even when I didn't have someone to marry).

    now that my big day is fast approaching, i've decided to "jump the broom" and so i've asked my adult daughter to decorate a broom and haul it with her to Jamaica. (oh the things a kid will do for dear ole Mom)

     

    is anyone else "jumping the broom' at their destination wedding?? and if so, what made you decide to do it, are you using a borrowed broom and/or a new one, how are you getting your broom to your destination?  oh and please post pics of your brooms too. 

     

    i can't wait to hear from all of you!  THANKS for sharing!! :-) R~

        OMG! Having the broom of your great-great grandmother makes the tradition so much more special.  I would defintely love to see that broom.

I have actually had the pleasure of having mines passed down to me. :-) My great-great grandmother was a former slave and although some of my family memebers have opted out of jumping the broom, I am definatley doing it. Not only to continue a tradtion but to honor my great- great grandmother as well. :-) I will upload pics when I get a chance.

                  This is soo beautiful!!!!  I plan to jump the broom and am really excited about it.  I found a spoken word type song on the internet that I plan to incorporate into the ceremony somehow.

                      @kks2012 - How many Inches is your Broom? Will it fit in your suitcase?
