Top Bouquet Toss Songs

  • Peggy A. Ojeda

The tossing of the bridal bouquet is undoubtedly one of the most fun and exciting moments of a wedding reception.

For those of you that are not familiar with the tradition, the bouquet toss is the moment at a wedding when "all the single ladies" in attendance line up behind the bride for their chance to catch her bouquet.

The bride will usually stand with her back towards the participants and in some cases to ensure no favoritism. You might even see her toss the bouquet while blindfolded. 👀

The DJ or MC will often do a countdown, and when she hears her cue to go, she'll toss her bouquet behind her head for one of the lucky single ladies in the crowd to catch. Think of it as a passing of the torch, but in this case, instead of fire, it's a lovely bouquet of flowers!

Much like the garter toss, legend has it that whichever lucky gal gets their hands on her much-coveted arrangement of flowers will be the one who gets hitched next.

The music

The garter and bridal bouquet toss at weddings are all about engaging and having fun, and nothing seems to get people on the dance floor and full-fledged ready to participate more than a fun, catchy song.

Ultimately, you could choose any upbeat song for your bouquet toss, but female empowerment anthems have always been by far the fan favorites!

Notable mentions of songs not available on Spotify are:

  • Gwen Stefani - Hollaback Girl (radio edit)

Toss alternatives

  • You can present the bouquet to the longest married couple as part of an Anniversary Dance.


Always remember when it comes to wedding traditions, there are no rules. Whether you toss the bridal bouquet or not, the final decision should be made on which choice best fits your style and personality.
