Do you have a favorite garter removal song, not on our list?  Please share your song below so that we can add it!

What is a Garter Removal Song?

The garter removal song is played as the groom removes the garter from the bride’s leg. Usually, the bride is sitting on a chair in the middle of the dance floor, surrounded by wedding guests, as the groom removes her garter.

You can enhance the garter removal with a drum roll or a song. The removal is traditionally done to “The Stripper” by David Rose. But you may not like that swinging jazz vibe. That’s cool. This is why we’ve listed 100 more songs.

Is the Garter Removal Song Awkward?

If you’re more conservative (socially), then this may be awkward. If you’re a run-of-the-mill American, this is a fun part of the wedding. The groom has an opportunity to find the garter (with his teeth). Hey, it could definitely be the bride in a same-sex wedding. Who says it couldn’t be a double garter removal? That’s double the fun!

The garter removal is fun for the wedding couple and their guests. With that said, if it makes you uncomfortable, as a couple, then don’t do it. This is why you are planning your wedding with a professional wedding coordinator. Make your concerns known and, along with a professional DJ, you’ll come up with some fun alternatives.

 

Where Does the Garter Removal Fit in the Wedding Reception?

The typical order of a wedding reception for the bouquet and garter is as follows: Bouquet Toss Songs, Garter Removal Songs, Garter Toss Songs & Garter Placement Songs. Of course, it is up to you, as the wedding couple, to choose to have some of the above events or none at all. We have seen weddings with many combinations.

With that said, the bouquet toss and the garter toss make great photo opportunities. They’re fun, spontaneous, and a great way to show your personality! The bouquet songs below are focused on a feminine theme. The garter toss songs have a more masculine theme. The garter removal songs and garter placement songs are sexy songs either way.
