95 Best Bouquet Toss Songs For Brides
The wedding reception is off to a good start and it’s time to toss the bridal bouquet. What song is the best to get the single ladies on the dance floor?
Bouquet Toss, Garter Removal, Garter Toss & Garter Placement are the typical order at a wedding reception. It is up to the bridal couples if they would like to have some of the above events or none at all.
We have seen weddings with many combinations. However, the bouquet toss and the garter toss make great photo opportunities. Just ensure your guest list includes single people. Otherwise, you could have a very awkward moment.
Many brides decide to toss her bouquet to all of the single ladies in attendance at her wedding. The below songs will help highlight the event. If you have a special bouquet toss song not listed below, be sure to let us know in the comment section. Our bouquet toss songs are from today’s weddings and made popular by today’s brides.
What is the Bridal Bouquet Toss?
The tossing of the bridal bouquet seems odd — like 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.
“These days, wedding guests leap after falling flowers because we believe catching it will make us the next person to get married. But historically, the bouquet toss was a distraction technique.” Sequins Ballroom
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.
“Check with your florist whether they will include a throwing bouquet with your real bouquet. This has two advantages in that it stops your expensive bridal bouquet from getting ruined and it can be made to be more robust so that it doesn’t fall apart when it is thrown.” Easy Weddings
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.
“It’s lively, fun, brings energy to dance floor, and encourages people to stay out there and dance.” Shannon Leahy Rosenbaum
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.
