Right now the music is overwhelming. I really didn’t realize how many songs you had to pick! I was wondering if anyone could provide some ideas for what they’re using for the Garter Toss andPutting on the garter song as well as what the couple’s entrance song is for the reception?

We are walking into The Monkees, "I’m a Believer", and for the bouquet toss, I chose Beyonce "Naughty Girl". We aren’t doing a garter toss, but the following website might help you pick your songs. I printed it and my fiance and I chose songs we liked to give to our DJ.

For the bouquet toss, I think I would like to do Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper. I’m still thinking about the garter toss. I think I might let my FH pick that one.

Music can be overwhelming, so if you’re not having fun picking out songs, I’d say leave it to the DJ or band (if you’re not having an Ipod wedding). You can also pick his/her brain for suggestions as he/she has done this a million times. I originally thought it would be too stressful to pick out songs (another minute decisions to make!) and I was planning on letting the DJ decide on everything except the first song but it has actually been a lot of fun, though we haven’t decided on the grand entrance song or garter so can’t help you there. I’d ditto googling them or checking the wiki out:

Barry Polisar "All I Want is You" (opening song from Juno) is super fun for an entrance song. I think we’re going to use it for our cake cutting though. Good luck… just have fun with it!

I posted this song on another thread but listen to Mike Dought’s "I hear the bells" to me it just sounds like something is starting! It is our reception entrance song 🙂

our garter toss song is "you can keep your hat on" – no idea who sings it. For our entrance, we’ll be playing "let’s get it started" by the black eyed peas

@ loralie – the song you are referring to is "leave your hat on" by joe cocker. i’m not sure where else it appears, but it is definitely on the 9 1/2 Weeks soundtrack. it is a great choice for the garter song!

We’re playing “Take It Off” by the Donnas for the garter removal then “Enter Sandman’ by Metallica for the toss. We’re playing “Single Ladies” for the bouquet toss.
My flower girl/ring bearer are walking into the theme from America’s Next Top Model, the bridal party “I Got a Feeling” and we’re walking into “Run This Town” by Jay-Z.
I think someone already mentioned the website www.WeddingMuseum.com it’s a great resource for every part of the wedding.

- Wedding: May 2010 - Philippe Park
When we were planning on the bouquet/garter toss we were going to do “Glamorous Life” by Shelia E. for the bouquet and “Dress You Up” by Madonna for the garter. We didn’t want to do any song you can find by googling “bouquet toss music” or “garter toss music”. We wanted to it be less generic and more us, and we love 80s music, can you tell?

I’ve always wanted to come into the reception to the Jefferson’s Theme .
We are HUGE Blackhawks Fans so we will be using Chelsea Dagger

Since we’re doing an Ipod wedding I’m sure we can time the music right to HAVE an entrance song. If we can figure out the logistics, Mr. C would Love if we could walk into Orinoco flow by Celtic Woman.
But for the bouquet toss we’re doing “Girls just wantto have fun”.
We have a minor understated star trek thing going on with a few wedding elements, and so for the garter removal we’re doing the original star trek voice theme song.
Then for the Garter toss itself (since the theme song is less than a minute long), we’re doing “Another One bites the dust”.

“Under the Boardwalk” for garter.
“This One’s for the Girls” for bouquet.
“I Gotta Feeling” for entrance.
