What is the bridal bouquet toss?

The tossing of the bridal bouquet seems odd — why are we singling out the single women? Though history is intertwined with superstition, most modern wedding couples include this practice.

People believed that touching a newly-married bride — and maybe getting a piece of her gown — would ensure their own wedding. Instead of ruining a dress, the bouquet was tossed instead. This is an excellent diversionary tactic, for sure.

What bouquet should you toss?

Maybe you want to keep your bridal bouquet. Do you have to toss that? No. You don’t have to do the toss at all. But if you want to do the toss but keep your original bouquet, then ask your florist about a second bouquet.

Same-sex couples can make a fun event of the bridal bouquet toss. Gender doesn’t have to play into who is eligible to catch the bouquets either. Remember, this is your special day.

You make the rules. Coordinate with your wedding planner and professional DJ.


What’s the best song for the bridal bouquet toss?

Bouquet toss songs are songs played as the bride tosses her floral bouquet to all of the single women at the wedding reception. You can enhance the bouquet toss with a drum roll or a song. The song usually references women or girls.

The best bouquet songs above are focused on a women’s and girl’s theme. The garter toss songs have a men and boys theme.

The garter removal and garter placement songs usually have a “sexy” theme. Choose an upbeat song; this is supposed to encourage dancing. You can even choose a silly song after for the garter and bouquet recipients to dance together.

One of the songs on our list will highlight the event and create memories for a lifetime.
