Snag music ideas you’ll actually want to play

Every Wednesday morning, you’ll get song ideas to create an epic wedding playlist. You may unsubscribe at any time.
This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.


Before tossing the garter, you can choose to highlight the removal of the garter from the bride’s leg (classy or risque). See a list of songs to play for the removal of the garter.


After you toss the garter, the tradition is to place the garter on the winner of the bouquet toss. See a list of music to play for placing the garter to highlight the process.


Garter toss songs are songs played as the groom tosses the bride’s garter to all of the single men at the wedding reception.

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!

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.

The bouquet toss and 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.
