I think it would be neat.. I am caucasian. But I love this tradition! I think it would be cute and meaningful for you both!

I have no experience with this wedding tradition, but I think if you explain it to the guests that may not understand what it is or why you’d do it, that most people would be supportive!  I think it’s a great way to incorporate your tradition into the wedding!

If the tradition is important to you, then I say to do it!  

As for your family’s reaction- do you think they would object to jumping the broom in and of itself- or do you think they would object to you jumping it with a white guy in particular?

If it’s just that they might not approve of jumping the broom at all, ignore them and have the ceremony you want.

If it’s that your Fiance is white, then it may be an opportunity to address those concerns/prejudices with your family and pave the way for your Fiance to be welcomed into the family without reservation.

Mrs. Bee is Korean and I am half-Japanese, but we still celebrated the traditional Korean wedding ceremony – the Paebaek.  Our guests loved it!

Just like you mentioned… to explain the tradition to guests, we put a description of the custom in the program.  Mrs. Butterfly later ended up using the same text in her programs:

Program Design

Everyone loved it, and it was one of the most popular parts of the ceremony!
