40+ Ideas for Your Garter Toss Song

Each week, we feature wedding music recommendations from Scratch Weddings, the nation's leader with the best wedding DJs at affordable prices. This week's post comes from DJ RT.  This multi-talented musician gained his deep knowledge of music history at a young age and describes his DJ style as a balance of party rocker, turntabalist, and remixer. He loves to spin weddings and takes pride in playing music that brings people together "At weddings, you have such a wide range of people there, you really need to find the music that is literally timeless—the songs that everyone knows and loves.”

The garter toss is most definitely the naughtiest, sexiest, funniest, and usually most embarrassing moment of a wedding. This old time tradition simply cannot go down without laughs, cheers, ohh, ahhs, and bright red faces. The recipe is classic and simple: Make the newly-appointed husband reach up the dress of his beautiful wife in front of their parents, extended family, friends, and maybe even a bunch of people they are meeting for the first time. Then have the groom throw it at all the single guys in the room! A moment like this encompasses a lot of emotions and reactions within a very short time, so you better make sure the music is right. Here, I collected a bunch of classic songs used for the garter toss. Enjoy!
