There are many times in your wedding reception that require a great soundtrack. I’ve found that many people forget about the song to remove the garter and toss the garter. This tradition can be one of the sexiest moment of your wedding reception. You must pair it with songs as momentous as the moment.
What to choose
When considering garter toss songs, you may want to skip tunes with a ton of expletives, but you should go with something that has a little more heat than, say, a PG song. Yes, it’s likely that your grandparents may give you a few disapproving glances, but it’s your party and you can do what you want to.
Since you need to remove the garter before it can be thrown, lets discuss your song choices. For the introverts of the world, this activity is pure terror but we’ll get through it. Pick an upbeat song like the ones from my Spotify List of PG garter removal songs below and only do what you’re comfortable with.
Now for my showmen out there, let’s take it to the next level. Pick some songs with serious heat. There are classics like “Let’s Get it On” by Marvin Gaye that did not make my list because it’s used at every wedding reception. You don’t want to be like everybody else. You want to show your unique sex appeal 😍. Take a look at my list of sexy garter removal songs below
After the garter removal 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; whichever person in the crowd catches the treasured garter will have good luck and be the next to marry. Some also say that by throwing the wedding garter, the groom is tossing away his single life to his unmarried friends. Whichever it is, one thing we can all agree on is, that it’s an excellent way to get the single men on the dance floor. Here are some Garter Toss songs that will help
Garter placement songs
There is no “official” title for putting the garter on the woman that caught the bouquet so I’m calling it the Garter Placement. You can leave it up to chance and let fate decide who catches the garter and bouquet. This kind of randomness can lead so some hilariously memorable or awkwardly memorable moments. But hey, that’s the beauty of chance. If you feel that fate needs a helping hand then pre-select the people to catch sought after items. No matter the route you choose, this Spotify list of songs is for you.
Although it looks like the garter toss may be going out of style, the garter toss is an option, not a requirement — so do it if you want to, and skip it if you don’t.

Over all these years, there have been numerous songs that have just been associated with the Garter Toss. Obviously there are thousands of songs to choose from but there are certain songs that are MADE for the Garter Toss.
Following are some of the songs that I believe might just add a little bit more of a perfection to the wedding when played during the Garter Toss:
Suits and Tie – Justin Timberlake
This song is a wild mix up of the voices of Justin Timberlake and Jay Z. It hypes up everyone on the floor and everyone else that is present in the wedding. With everyone involved in the wedding, the Garter Toss will most probably the most fun thing to do there.
Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up – Barry White
This song comes with a mixed punch of sultry, jazz, classical and the perfect amount of sexiness. All of this makes it the perfect song for the Garter Toss. Nothing makes it more perfect than tossing the garter in the air with Barry White’s voice in the background.
Welcome to the Jungle – Guns & Roses
I believe that no wedding can ever be complete without Guns & Roses being a part of it. This band has been a part of almost all of our childhood and their song being played on the most important day of your life will definitely not disappoint.
In Those Jeans – Ginuwine
This song is probably the most iconic among all the songs mentioned. This won’t only let the guests have a great time, but also them wanting more.
Hot in Herre – Nelly
This song used to be everyone’s jam back in 2002, which makes this song not only nostalgic, but also something that will make everyone party, since it was the most common party song at that time. It just sets the mood of everyone at the party with its naughty lyrics and catches everyone’s attention.
Animals – Maroon 5
Who can even forget this masterpiece? NOONE! This song was one of the best when it came out and it showed that this song was here for a purpose and yes, the purpose is to play it for the Garter Toss. The energy this song displays and shares is just unexplainable. This will make everyone at the party turn into ‘animals’.
