  • sidenote.. i think if a boob falls out thats an added bonus and it gives the groom a little preview of what is going to come later..lol

  • vawnnie please report directly to the corner. 

    {{stagewhisper}} ahem, double-sided fabric tape.    that is all.

    don't let the risk of looking like an idiot stop you from doing something you wanna do, it's all part of the day's charm.   boobs, balance, whatever, the only time people really talk is when you're stinking ass drunk and that's only if they weren't drunk enough.   live, chile.

  • Boob pop'n? Sure, why not. Go for it!

    We're not jumping any brooms. It's not a tradition either of our families follow. Now, playing a group line dance (Wobble baby wobble baby wobble baby) -- that'll happen.

  • Whew!  I thought I was the only one.  I think All of my family's weddings have included the jumping of the broom.  I have extremely strong anti-broom feelings, so I was preparing for a bit of a fight on this. 
  • We are both stoked to jump the broom. The biggest obstacle is finding one.
  • We are definitely jumping the broom. Just have to find where to purchase or make a beautiful one. I do not want it to look like a Halloween witches broom.
  • Definitely jumping the broom. We are also tasting the elements and doing a short libation ceremony :)
  • Try www.etsy.com there are a few people on there who make brooms.
  • Thanks Cstow06.  I found two vendors that I like on etsy.com for brooms.

    We are, but my fiance is white so when the time comes we're probably going to have to explain to some of his family why the hell there is a decorated broom on the ground and what the hell we're jumping over it for. 

    We talked about having a brief spiel on the significance of it before we do it, but we don't want to bore anyone.
