Bouquet Toss Wedding Songs


The tradition of ’bouquet tossing’ in the wedding reception ceremony has become very popular in the mid twentieth century. The bride is considered to be a very fortunate person on the wedding day. According to the traditional belief, the bride tosses the bouquet over the shoulder to the assembled unmarried women guests.

The woman who catches the bouquet would be the next one to be married. In the similar case, the groom removes the garter from the bride’s leg and tosses it to unmarried men and the person who catches is the next one to get married.

There are many popular bouquet toss wedding songs. You can select the best one as per your preferences.

You have to select four different songs for this occasion. They are when the bride tosses the bouquet, the groom removes the garter from the bride’s leg, the groom tosses the garter, and when the garter catcher places the garter in the legs of the bouquet catcher.

The popular songs for bouquet toss would include varieties such as dance music, classic rock music, all time favorite songs, hip hop music, and top popular songs. These songs will make this special moment more interesting and memorable. Some examples of popular bouquet toss wedding songs are enlisted below:

• Single White Female- Chely Wright
• Ladies Night-Kool and The Gang
• I feel like a woman-Shania Twain
• Its Raining Men-The Weather Girls

The mostly preferred bouquet toss wedding song is a song sung by women. It symbolizes the feminism, strength, and power of females or about the true love. Apart from these, there are also songs sung by men which are also popular and are utilized. You can also opt for fun songs or traditional songs and enjoy the ceremony to its fullest.

This tradition is slowly in the process of many distinctions such as the brides are opting for smaller and cheaper wedding bouquet especially made for the bouquet toss. These wedding bouquets look similar to the actual wedding bouquets that are tossed.

Add a Personal Touch with Unique Wedding Cake Toppers


One of the most common questions asked by brides and grooms when planning their wedding is "How can we make our wedding unique?” If you want to make your wedding memorable rather than just like everyone else's wedding, you just need to personalize it! Most guests won’t remember their chicken cordon bleu, but they will remember the personal touches that make your wedding distinct.

The ceremonial cutting of the wedding cake is always a highlight of the reception, and you can make this moment even more special with a wedding cake topper that reflects the bride and groom’s personal look and style.

Here are some great ideas for adding a more personal touch to your wedding cake:

Share your interests as a couple:
There are many wedding cake toppers available with themes that can display a common interest that you have as a couple, including sports themes such as baseball, hockey, fishing, skiing, football, golf, soccer, motorcycles and more!

Share how you met:
Many couples have a romantic or fun story of how they met. Maybe you met at a baseball game or at a Western bar? Why not use a baseball themed or western themed wedding cake topper? Did you meet at the beach? Choose a barefoot couple lounging on the sand beach theme cake topper. There is a wide range of wedding cake toppers that cater to many different scenarios.

Embrace your Heritage:
We’re not all blonde haired and blue eyed, so why should your cake topper look that way? We have many ethnic and culturally diverse bride and groom cake toppers now available to depict you and your husband or wife exactly the way you want to be portrayed.

Add some fun with Comical or Novelty Wedding Cake Toppers:
Liven up your wedding cake with a comical cake topper that pokes fun at yourselves. Obsessed with technology? Go with a couple talking on cell phones! Were you dating a long time before the wedding? Choose a funny cake topper with the bride dragging the groom to the altar. Whatever you choose, remember it’s all in good fun!

Mix and Match:
Not every couple is exactly alike. Wedding cake toppers sold as a couple generally are not suitable for most couples. With mix and match figurines you customize the look of your wedding cake topper to create a custom pairing that reflects your unique ethnic blend or pairing. Some options for you to create include curvy brides, burly grooms and multi-racial couples.

Non-Traditional:
Traditional cake toppers aren’t always suitable for every wedding. Many more brides are opting for something different from the traditional bride and groom cake topper. Some couples tying the knot choose an expecting bride figurine, or for a personal touch, monogram cake toppers with the first initials of the bride and groom’s names. Many cake toppers also feature animal couples such as a pair of doves. Or you could go for a modern sculpture to top your cake.

Wedding cake toppers aren’t just for cakes. They can go on top of cupcake towers or serve as the perfect decoration for your guestbook table! Regardless of where your wedding cake topper goes, it will be sure to infuse your special day with distinctive personality, and serve as a wonderful memento of your wedding for many years to come.

Choose wedding vows for your wedding



Wedding vows are the promises that couples make to one another in the witness of God, before they enter into life long commitment with each other. They have different ways in different cultures around the globe but hold the same essence at its core.

For an example, marriage vows are the central part of the time honored and solemn traditional practice. They are the heart of the sacrament of marriage and come as the final part of the ceremony. It’s the exchange of vows that makes a wedding official. Some choose to write their own one or get the traditional one supplied from the church. Doesn’t matter what ever be the choice a certain format is followed to ensure that whatever is necessary is said.

Choice of memorizing Wedding Vows



After deciding which form of verse to choose, next one can also think about whether to memorize the verses or to repeat it after the priest. The advantage of memorizing not only gives a richer symbol to the marriage but also in the saying the words makes one realize the deeper meaning of words of the verses, to understand depth, sanity, spiritual unbreakable bond that the institution of marriage holds.

If some one is not confident about to recall the wedding Vows correctly then the priest will say the verses and ask the couple to repeat it word by word though the Rite of Marriage actually does not suggest this.



Most couples decide to have a Wedding Songs or instrumental piece after the wedding Vows to add emphasis to the declaration of consent, though many liturgical strongly advise against it as it disturbs the flow and momentum of the entire rite of marriage. But a short and joyful musical acclamation is welcome.

Beautiful Father Daughter Wedding Songs



Various thoughts pass through a father’s mind when he prepares to get her daughter married. In such an occasion, the father looks forward to the delight he feels when he shares one last dance with his prized daughter, on a father daughter wedding songs, before she becomes a part of her husband’s life.



This part of the wedding cannot be overlooked as at many weddings the father daughter dance is followed by the groom taking his place at her side, representing the replacement of the father, as the protector and provider. Here are steps to choose the best most popular father daughter wedding love songs:



• Try to select a song that resonates with both of you. The father daughter wedding songs selection could be a standard wedding song or her childhood favorite song. The father daughter dance is likely to be a highly emotional moment in your wedding and the perfect song for this occasion could be an encouragement for the same.

• Find a song that is meaningful and has lyrics that relate to the relationship the bride and her father have with each other.

• A modest tempo song is best for this occasion as they might not be such good dancers and it is easier to dance to a slow song rather than a fast beat song.

• You need to choose a father daughter song according to the type of dance you will be sharing with him. If you are thinking on a two step dance, then choose a wedding song with a duple meter and if you want to do an elegant waltz then select a song in the triple meter.

• Though this is the time to savor the closeness between the bride and her father, you need to get the party started. For this reason, you have to select a short song as it is customary for the guests to clear the floor during the father and daughter dance is going on. That means you have to wind up the dance before your guests can get on with enjoying the party.

Choose your first dance wedding song



The first dance of the newlyweds is special not only for the couple but also the guests. The selection of the first dance wedding songs for this occasion reflects the personalities of the couple. The dance style and the song you chose creates a long lasting impression on the guests as this is the first thing you do as a married couple.



At such an occasion the parents of the bride and groom feel immense delight and joy to see their children in love. It is very common to choose a traditional style and select a love track on which the couple dances slowly and glides over the dance floor. Some couples eve take salsa or meringue dance lessons prior to their weddings so that they can dance well in front of the guests. However, remember that whatever style you choose to perform on ‘D’ day, you will not go wrong if you relax and be yourself.



Here are some steps you can take to choose your wedding songs first dance:



• The first and foremost step for choosing your own most popular first dance wedding song is to ask your would be spouse to choose a song for your first dance at the wedding which reminds him/her of you or of the relationship you share. Evaluate the songs he/she gives to see whether both of you agree on the same song and if it is suitable for your first public appearance as a couple.

• To make a list of all the first dance wedding love songs you are interested in, you can search the internet, the library or even ask your friends for popular songs you can play on your first dance.

• If possible you can play the songs your parents danced on at their wedding. Choose a song that has cultural, family or ethnic significance attached to it.

• Another way of selecting a good song for your first dance is to listen to romantic, danceable songs together. Listen to the complete songs or at least go through its lyrics before you finalize a song. You don’t want songs that have sexually suggestive lyrics to be played as your wedding songs first dance in front of everyone. This will be very inappropriate for a wedding reception where all your distant family members are also present.

• Ensure that the lyrics of the song lyrics are appropriate for the dance. If a band is going to play your song, you will have to decide if you want an instrumental or the vocal version of the song. Remember that even if you are playing an instrumental of a particular song, chances are that your guests might already know the lyrics of the song and hear them in their minds.

• Be sure of letting your band or DJ know about your choice before hand so that they can prepare for it in advance.

• Also make sure if you need to provide sheet music to the band of your wedding songs first dance and where you can purchase it. You might have to provide a recording of the song to the DJ.

• Think about taking dance classes together for your style of dance. It could be fun.
