67 Best Garter Toss Songs



Are you tossing the garter at your wedding reception? What song will be on your soundtrack? Will it be saucy? Sexy? Risqué? We have just the list for you.

What Is The Garter Toss?

The Garter Toss is the part of the ceremony where the groom, set to a sexy song, removes the garter from the bride’s thigh, usually with his teeth. Choosing the right song sets the entire stage for this fun event. Garter toss songs are songs played as the groom tosses the bride’s garter to all of the single men at the wedding reception.

“The wedding garter is a piece of bridal lingerie worn under the wedding dress. During the reception, the groom will remove the garter from underneath the bride’s gown (with his hands or teeth) and toss it into the crowd.” Brides.com

You can enhance the garter toss with a drum roll but of course, we prefer a song. The song usually references men and has a sensual undertone. Much like the bouquet toss, the single man who catches the garter is said to be the next to be wed. It’s fun!

Is the Garter Removal Sexist?

Well, if you want to get to the nitty-gritty of any tradition, many things can be considered sexist. The flip side is that tradition states that a piece of the bride’s garment is good luck. Instead of allowing people to bum rush her and tear her (very) expensive dress, the garter is found by the groom and tossed.

It is up to the wedding couple if they would like to have some of the above events or none at all. Also, it’s a great transition from “this party is for you” to, well, “the party is for the wedding couple.” You know, behind closed doors and all that.

Same-sex couples can both keep the garter in and toss it out (see the pun?) of their wedding reception. It’s up to you. We like this idea from a wedding forum user named “Pirata 13.”

“We did both the garter and bouquet toss but combined it all into one. I’m a big baseball fan. So we ‘rehearsed’ a couple of times with the song ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ so we had the timing right. The DJ had the whole hall sing along with us–H & I had chairs “center stage” while the girls were off to one side of the dance floor, guys off to the other side. The garter was right at my knee, we’d agreed no head under the dress stuff, it was very simple and clean’ and on the ‘For it’s 1! 2! 3! strikes you’re out!” line, we tossed the bouquet and garter. It essentially kept the focus on us aside from the last couple seconds and not put the single folks on display.”

Where Does The Garter Toss Fit In?

The bouquet toss then garter removal is the typical order at a wedding reception. We have seen weddings with many combinations.

Don’t forget that the bouquet toss and the garter toss make great photo opportunities. You’re paying a pretty penny for that photographer, so make the most out of it. The bouquet songs below are focused on a woman’s theme while garter toss songs have a men’s theme. The garter removal and garter placement songs are generally sexy.
