You can get a broom at most craft stores, like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. I’ve also seen them in the Dollar Tree around the fall months. You can buy your own artificial flowers, ribbons, or other accessories if you’d like to make it yourself. There are also a number of them for sale on Etsy.com. They’ll be more expensive because they’re personalized. Just do a search for “wedding broom” on the site.

As for the black cake topper, it really depends on how elaborate you want it. If you want something that is really personal and resembles you and your fiance, then check out Etsy.com. If you just want something traditional, then check out: http://www.weddingstar.com/wedding-cake-toppers/ethnic-cake-toppers

You two are too cute! I don’t know if I want a cake topper. And we’e interracial (I’m black he’s white), so I don’t know how I feel about jumping the broom. Might be kinda offensive to our black guests so we’ll probably pass on that one. Super excited to be wedding planning though!

The economy hasnt affected us at all. I think it just differs from person to person. Have you tried etsy? It’s a site that has home made items, we got our cake topper from there made to look like us with our wedding outfits on. As for brooms, like another poster stated, try michaels and make your own, it will be a really nice personal touch.

@Mrs.Elivs:

My FI is white…and damnit, we’re jumping the broom! I don’t care if anyone’s offended. It’s my day and my choice! Hahaha! Laughing

Plus, there are lots of other cultures that “jump the broom,” including the Irish. Historically, it’s not just a “black thing.”

Best of luck with your decision 🙂

You can find brroms at the Dollar Tree! I was floored when I saw them. Check by the artificial flowers. I am not jumping the broom. :0( instead we are tying our wrists together to “tie the knot.” We are also having a libation ceremony and the tasting of the elements.

I can’t wait to see your broom. I know couples who once they wed, hang it above their front door (on the inside).
