  • Garter Removal & Throw

    One of the most entertaining moments of any wedding reception comes when it is time for the groom to remove the garter from his bride’s thigh and toss it to the pool of single men hoping to catch it. Unique to the garter toss experience, this is one of the only chance's for the groom himself to truly entertain the guests; it's his chance to shine.

    Most weddings do this part of the reception party with no music. But there is a growing trend to dress up all parts of the reception, including this portion. Therefore, more and more wedding parties are including a song selection during this event. In selecting music for the garter ceremony, you can have more fun and play around with more styles than you can during other parts of the wedding and reception.

    Play something upbeat, even a little sensuous if you want. It's all in good fun, and it will only help to enhance the atmosphere. Include a little jazz number, for instance, or perhaps some old-fashioned swing music. Or you can even go for something as contemporary as hip-hop. The key with this musical number is to remember not to take it too seriously.

    Removal
    Garter removal songs are songs 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 as the groom removes the garter. You can enhance the garter removal with a drum roll or a song. The song usually is the stripper song but other popular songs are listed.

    Bouquet Toss Songs, Garter Removal Songs, Garter Toss Songs & Garter Placement Songs is 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. The bouquet songs below are focused on a women and girls theme. The garter toss songs have a men and boys theme. The garter removal songs and garter placement songs usually have a “sexy” theme.

    Note:  Garter placement songs are songs played as the woman (who was the winner of the bouquet toss) puts the bride’s garter on the arm of the winner of the garter toss. You can enhance the garter placement with a drum roll or a song.   I usually don't see this at Wedding Receptions that I have done.  It is totally optional.
