If you’re planning on including the garter toss at your wedding, consider livening things up by having the DJ spin a sexy tune. For most couples, the garter toss is a lighthearted tradition meant to mirror the bouquet toss. Once a wedding staple, the garter toss was part of a ritual in which the groom would remove the item to signal the bride's chastity. Today, it simply signifies the tossing away one's unmarried life to the rest of the single friends. The eligible guest who catches the garter is said to have good luck and will be the next to wed.

Whatever song you pick, remember to have fun with the garter toss. You can go for a sensual song (Marvin Gaye, anyone?) where your guests can have fun cheering you on or you can go the funny route with the theme song of a spy movie. Consider wooing with a classic like "Oh, Pretty Woman," or "Bootylicious," a modern-day equivalent, or boosting your own garter-grabbing prowess with "Eye of the Tiger." Whichever way you go, the garter toss is a cute (albeit, sensual) diversion in a reception that's sure to get all the single fellas out on the dance floor—and what could be better than that?

Here are our top 67 garter-toss songs.

How long should a wedding first dance last? ›

Keep your first dance short and sweet. Your first dance should be between 2.5 to 3 minutes long. Unless you are a professional dancer, dancing in front of people for more than 3 minutes could feel like forever! Plus, you don't want to bore your guests with the limited dance moves you have.
