How to choose the music when tossing your bouquet and garter
Although not absolutely necessary, the bouquet and garter toss are still very popular with brides and grooms. Why wouldn’t they be, after all? These traditions can be a lot of fun and they can add a lot of laughter to a wedding – so you might want to consider including them as well.
How to choose the music for these fun wedding highlights? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on, find out more and inspire yourself to create some unforgettably entertaining moments at your wedding.
• Both the bouquet toss and the garter toss are traditions that date as far back as the Middle Ages. While back then they were used to protect the bride from unruly guests, these days the only “unruliness” present at these moments are the slight bumps guests will give to each other when trying to catch the bouquet or the garter.
• Choosing the songs for these two moments is not something you should stress too much about. In the end, these traditions are fun, so you can definitely allow your creativity to run wild when picking the “soundtrack”.
• In general, brides and grooms choose to go for songs everyone in the room will recognize – such as “Oldies But Goldies” from the 80s and 90s or songs that are more modern, but very well known (e.g. Beyoncé’s All the Single Ladies for the bouquet toss). If you don’t have any kind of idea for these songs, ask your DJ – he will definitely be able to recommend you with something upbeat, fun and popular.
