UNDECORATED WEDDING JUMP BROOM

BRO3 - UnDecorated African Wedding Jump Broom

Jumping the broom is a popular African wedding tradition that symbolizes the sweeping away of the old and the welcoming of the new. A wonderful way to start your life together and a beautiful keepsake to pass down to your children!

Brooms are 32" tall and approximately 7" Wide. The handles are approximately 18" long. Note: Because brooms are "hand made", they are a bit "scraggly". This can be hidden with decorations like exampled below.

Decorattions below are shown as decorating ideas only. Ribbon, lace, flowers, and other decorations NOT included. Broom is sold "UNDECORATED" ONLY.

Another African tradition is to add "Cowrie" Shells to the broom. It was believed in the "old days" that cowrie shells encourage fertility (so if you don't want "youngins" any time soon, you might want to leave them off) .

You will see on most of the photo examples below, they are glued on. We also offer these in a bag of approximately 20 shells. They are a mixed bag of white and different colored browns.

 

 

Jump Broom Ceremony:

  • Select a time to perform this tradition. Either at the very end of the ceremony or during the reception would be appropriate.
  • Call your guests to gather around you and your new spouse.
  • Place the broom on the floor and stand in front of it.
  • Suggest that the narrator explain to guests that you are re-creating the ceremony as a way to represent the joining together of two lives and the need for support of the marriage from the entire community.
  • Hold the broom with your spouse as the narrator shares this important information.
  • Sweep the broom in a circle together until the story is finished.
  • Place the broom on the floor and hold hands with your spouse.
  • Ask the guests to count out loud to three.
  • Jump over the broom together.
