I like your bouquet toss song, it’s fun. Between your two garter toss songs I vote for Suit and Tie.

Sorry, but I haven’t seen a garter toss in years. And those (few) that throw the bouquet have used Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.”

I refuse to do a garter toss. Personally I think the whole thing is trashy and will be avoiding it at my wedding. My “bouquet” toss is not a traditional toss, we are going to call all of the couple out on the floor and the one that have been married the longest will get the bouquet.
Sorry, I don’t mean to insuly anyone but come on…a garter toss is disquisting.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
My songs were:
Bouquet toss: Wannabe – Spice Girls. All the single girls were preteens in 1999 so I have a pic of the whole group singing and dancing. Cracks me up every time I look at it.
Garter Toss: Legs – ZZ Top. Fun song, husband loves ZZ Top, it’s about a lady’s legs, garters are on legs…
I liked our songs 🙂

I’m not doing bouquet or garter toss either, but they are still very common. I’ve only ever been to one wedding that didn’t have the garter toss–it was super non-traditional in every way, and even they did the bouquet toss.

I was married 36+ years ago and did neither. My daughters – married 2013 and 2014 did/are doing neither.
Maybe it’s a family thing, maybe it’s a regional thing (we’re in the suburbs of a northeast US city)? I did go to a very expensive/formal wedding, about 10 years ago, and the band played “The Stripper,” while the groom removed the garter, and I thought the whole formality of the event went down hill.
The last bouquet toss I witnessed was not successful. The band announced it, played “Single Ladies,” and no single ladies went up on the dance floor. Couples who had been dancing before the announcement were milling around. When the toss bouquet went up in the air, a co-worker of the bride got up from her table and ran and caught it.
Years ago my daughter went to a wedding – her boyfriend/brother of the groom was a groomsmen. A very large gal caught the bouquet. None of the guys wanted to catch the garter and put it on her leg/dance with her. A young boy (ringbearer?) was the one to catch it, and he was very embarassed. I can’t see putting guests through that.
A lot of people think the dollar dance is a necessary requirement of their wedding and they have it at every wedding they go to. (I saw it once, Polish bride, wore an apron). To each their own.
This was a thread about suitable songs, not is it right or wrong? It seems that few people witness garter tosses anymore, so there won’t be many song suggestion. I’m sure whatever DJ/band you have, they will have suggestions for each.

What song are you doing for the removal of the garter or are you not doing that?

june004: I thought so too. Thanks so much for weighing in.
myweddingbee: Thanks for your input. I should have said in my original post that I refuse to have that song in my bouquet toss. but it is fun when other couples use it. It’s just not my cup of tea.
MrsEmployed: Although I see your point I am going to say that I did not ask anyone to judge my choiices in my wedding. I am choosing to have a garder toss as well as a bouquet toss as these are things that are traditional in our area. My question was not asking for your opinion on the activities it was asking for an opinion on the music. Thanks for your input.
aggie2010: Your songs are great. Thanks so much. I love wannabee by spice girls and I feel like all the girls would get excited over that one.
PABride: Garder tosses are still very very known. As for the man putting it on the womans leg that is uncommon now. Every wedding that I have been to has had both and every wedding I have been to they did not do the man putting the garder on the woman. That’s a little trashy in my opinion but this was not a post asking for everyone’s opinion on the activities it is a post asking about songs. I would never play the stripper for it as I think that is a little trashy but other than that its just my thoughts.
MrsHistory-Bee: The original post was about both. The bouquet toss was either Where them girls at. and the garter toss is was suit and tie or get lucky.

MrsHistory-Bee: Im going to keep looking on both but this is what I came up with so far. I still have 5.5 months til the wedding.
