Garter Ceremony Music
One of the most entertaining moments of any wedding
reception comes when it is time for the groom to remove
the garter from his bride’s thigh and toss it
to the pool of single men hoping to catch it. Unique
to the garter toss experience, this is one of the only
chance's for the groom himself to truly entertain the
guests; it's his chance to shine.
Play something upbeat, even a little sensuous if you
want. It's all in good fun, and it will only help to
enhance the atmosphere. Include a little jazz number,
for instance, or perhaps some old-fashioned swing music.
Or you can even go for something as contemporary as
hip-hop. The key with this musical number is to remember
not to take it too seriously.
Most weddings do this
part of the reception party with no music. But there
is a growing trend to dress up all parts of the reception,
including this portion. Therefore, more and more wedding
parties are including a song selection during this event.
In selecting music for the garter ceremony, you can
have more fun and play around with more styles than
you can during other parts of the wedding and reception.
