    Oops! Sorry, it took me 2 weeks to see this post!

    Yes, I absolutely think the broom would count as your "something borrowed!" And what a nice memento to use in your wedding. 

    I’ve been wondering about the very same thing. I think we will "jump the broom" right after the officiant announces us, as we get ready to walk back down the aisle. I haven’t thought about it much. 

    Do you have pictures of your broom?

    I have not heard about this broom thing before how very interesting. I do not think I will be jumping any broom though!

    We’re not getting married at a church, so we can jump the broom anytime. We are doing it right after he pronounces us husband and wife. After our kiss, one of the bridesmaids will take the broom and then we’ll jump and walk down the aisle to begin the recessional.

    Wow Im shocked that you wont be able to jump the brook at the church. I guess the next best thing to do is to do it as you exit as you said. We are deff jumping the broom in the sand of the DR as soon as we are pronounced man and wife:)

    okay so i am paranoid about jumping the broom. i’m scared i’ll fall or something like that and it will mean curses for our marriage.. i also don’t like the unity candle for the same reasons, what if it blows out while you’re lighting it?! i sure hope m doesn’t have either of these things in his radar.

    I’ve decided to jump the broom at the reception when we’re introducted to our guest.  Something different then I’ve seen before.

    We hadn’t really talked about it much, but we both would like to so we’ll probably make it happen.  Ours will be at a library venue, not a church, so we can do whatseneva we want to!  

    I’ve seen a few online stores, but where are other people planning to buy them from?
