Top Garter Toss Songs

  • Peggy A. Ojeda

After the removal of the garter belt is all said and done, it's time to switch up the music and toss it into a crowd of pumped up eligible bachelors!

As this old tradition goes, it is said that whichever person in the crowd catches the treasured garter will have good luck and will likely be the next to marry.

Some may also say that by throwing the wedding garter, the groom is tossing away his single life to his unmarried friends.

Whatever the case may be, one thing I'm sure we can all agree on is, that it's an excellent way to get the single men on the dance floor and involved in the wedding festivities.

Notable mentions of songs not available on Spotify are:

  • Jay-Z - Big Pimpin' (radio edit)

Also see The Latino Tradition of La Vibora De La Mar

If you’re considering implementing the fun tradition of the garter toss at your wedding, then you must know that selecting the right song is critical for setting the tone of the moment.

It's important to pick something that will get your single guests fired up and excited to compete for the good luck charm of the bridal garter!
