Jumping the Broom

Hello Ladies!
just wondering if anyone is considering or intends to jump the broom after their ceremony.  It has been symbolic in FI's ancestory, and although it is not practiced much anymore, I think it would mean alot to him and his family if we did.

 it represented the wife's commitment or willingness to clean the courtyard of the new home she had joined.  The only think I am concerned with is some of the family members feeling uncomfortable with it due to the negative stigma attached to it today.
