Songs for the Bouquet Toss

The bride just tossed her bouquet

Picking out a bouquet toss wedding song can be a fun break from choosing the more stressful father/daughter or mother/son wedding dance songs. Whether you choose one that is simply an old favorite or one with a bit more meaning, you are sure to get the single ladies in the groove for catching that bouquet.

The old adage "two heads are better than one" holds just as true when it comes to wedding planning as it does to any other aspect of life. Even if you and your spouse are coming up blank for the flower toss songs, you can ask for help. Good people to ask include:

  • Bridesmaids
  • Siblings
  • Recently married friends
  • Wedding DJ
  • Single friends and relatives

Do not be afraid to consider relatively unconventional songs, either. A Disney wedding song, such as Someday My Prince Will Come (from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), is a sweet song that you may not have thought of on your own. Likewise, consider contemporary hits like Just a Girl from No Doubt or What a Girl Wants by Christina Aguilera. The Miss America Pageant theme song could be a possibility, too.

Songs For Women by Women

When choosing a bouquet toss song, you may want one that is sung by women, for women. The song may celebrate femininity, strength, and power; it may be about finding love; it may be about men (good or bad). No matter you preference, there are plenty of songs by female singers.

Songs to consider tossing your wedding flower bouquet to include:

  • This One's For the Girls by Martina McBride
  • It's Raining Men by Weather Girls
  • Man! I Feel Like a Woman! by Shania Twain
  • Hit Me With Your Best Shot by Pat Benatar
  • These Boots are Made for Walkin' by Nancy Sinatra
  • All I Wanna Do by Sheryl Crow
  • I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
  • Girls Night Out by The Judds
  • Single White Female by Chely Wright
  • Respect by Aretha Franklin

Think about all of the best times you have had with your girl friends through the years. What songs would be on the soundtrack if a movie was made of your life? Is there a perfect song that describes how you feel about these times? Consider songs that would answer those two questions when picking out the toss song.

Songs About Women by Men

Just because only women partake in the bouquet toss doesn't mean that you should stick to just songs by female artists. A number of popular songs were sung by men for women. Usually with an edgier twist, they can really get the party started.

Think about using these songs as your bouquet toss wedding song:

  • Girls, Girls, Girls by Motley Crue
  • She's a Lady by Tom Jones
  • Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison
  • Brickhouse by The Commodores
  • Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On by Mel McDaniel
  • Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison

You may want to ask for input from your guy friends and fiancé. Ask them to think of a song that describes how they think of their significant other. This can help you start brainstorming a few ideas.

Additional Ideas

If you have brainstormed and are still stuck, you can always choose a great party song as your bouquet toss tune. Celebrate by Kool and the Gang, Jump Around by House of Pain, I Love Rock and Roll by Joan Jett, or You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC would all be good songs to get the dance going.

The hit Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper is a favorite wedding dance song. If you don't want to groove to it on the dance floor, use it as your bouquet toss song.
