- Peggy A. Ojeda
Ever wonder what song(s) wedding DJs play while the groom slips the garter off the bride? If you answered yes, you're in luck! Not only are we going to tell you (see playlist above), but we're also going to give you some excellent suggestions that your guests are sure to enjoy!
For those of you that are not familiar with the tradition; The garter removal portion of a wedding reception also referred to as the garter dance, is the moment of the evening in which the groom gets to put on a show and entertain guests with a few fun and sexy dance moves.
How it works
Typically, the bride sits on a chair in the middle of the dance floor, facing guests with the groom standing directly in front of her. The groom then removes the wedding garter from the bride's thigh as guests look on with a song or combination of songs playing in the background.
Put on a show
Picture yourself standing by, pumped up and eagerly waiting for your cue to go. You look around and nod your head to let everyone know that it's show time! The DJ starts the music, and the lyrics to [YOUR SONG] begin to pour out the speakers while cheers of encouragement and excitement fill the room! 👏🏼
He's got the moves
Some of the most creative and popular moves grooms often use may include; slowly removing and throwing their jacket, low crawling, sliding across the floor and depending on how enthusiastic the newlyweds are, you might even see an innocent lap dance.
The enjoyable moments leading up to the removal of the bridal garter will undoubtedly create some great photo opportunities for your photographer.
The most requested songs
When couples ask us for advice regarding song suggestions, we always tell them to pick a well-known song if they want a reaction from their guests.
Two song examples that come to mind that also happen to be our most requested are; "Pony by Ginuwine" and "Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye." 🎶
Keep in mind that people tend to react well to songs they know and not so much to ones they have to figure out.
Take it off
