Weddings are all about individualized elements that create a one of a kind experience. Your wedding broom is a symbol of strength, love and loyalty that will forever be a reminder of your new life and commitment. As such, it should be constructed with the choicest of materials. Journey wedding brooms are meticulously handcrafted; adorned with the finest silk, natural touch, preserved flowers and highest quality satin ribbons and organza. Our modern, vintage and afro-centric accents give off a shimmer in the light and sun that is sure to catch the attention of your guests!
"Jumping the broom" has both symbolic and spiritual importance in African American culture. While the ritual was used by our ancestors during slavery to honor their unions, some say it originated in African tribal marriages where sticks were laid on the ground to represent the couple`s new home together. It has been said that the straws of the broom represent family, the handle represents the Almighty and the ribbon represents the tie that binds the couple together.
Our three unparalleled collections consist of 25 premade styles, boasting a wide variety of intricate features and scent options of lavender, sage or frankincense. Choose your broom based on flowers, style, broom name, or whatever resonates with your heart.
