The Top 30 Most Requested Songs for Garter Activity

You’ve chosen music for your walk down the aisle, signing of the register and first dance, but what about the garter toss? We’ve got the Top 30 Most Requested Songs for Garter Activity

Nowadays, the garter toss is sometimes the only way to get most of the single guys on the dancefloor at a wedding, but the tradition started as a practical solution to a big problem. As the bride’s dress was considered lucky, a cry of ‘get the garter!’ as a bride attempted to leave at the end of the wedding meant that unless she had thought ahead and pinned the garter in a prominent place, she was in danger of having her dressed ripped to pieces by her guests!

Songs for Garter Activity

When the garter toss is included in a wedding, it can be a fun way to add a bit of spice and a few surprises: like the groom that also wore a garter for his wife to toss and the rugby-loving couple that threw the garter wrapped around a football.  

The music is key though, so below we’ve come up with the top 30 most requested songs for garter activity.

If you’re going to include a garter toss in your ceremony, pick a song to go with it that will really make the tradition come alive and reflect your personality as a couple. If you’re a couple that likes to make people laugh, the Theme fromMission ImpossibleorThe Bond Thememay suit your style (especially if you’re planning to follow the tradition of the groom removing the garter with their teeth!). 

If you want to heat things up, try Nelly’sHot In Here, Justin’sSexybackor give the bride her due with ZZ Top’sLegs.

For a more romantic take on the garter toss, it’s worth considering Hot Chocolate’sYou Sexy Thing, but ultimately the garter toss is traditionally the more suggestive part of a wedding.

Along with the ironic commentary of Queen’s ‘Another one bites the dust’, and Panic at the Disco’s ‘Death of a Bachelor’, here are the top 30 most requested garter toss songs to get you started (and keep those guys on the dancefloor!).
