What jumping the broom means today

This old rich tradition thrives today and for those solidly behind the practice, it is a way of showing reverence to their ancestors and appreciating the beauty of this rich sacred tradition.

Today, one can purchase decorated brooms at a bridal store or local craft for the ceremony. You could also make your own custom broom from a normal household broom and decorate it with flowers and ribbons for the ceremony. The choice is yours.

On the day of the wedding, you can jump the broom right after you exchange vows or when you are about to enter the venue of your reception.
