Brief Bouquet Toss History

Historically, touching the bride or keeping some token from the wedding day was thought to be a sign of future good fortune. As a matter of fact, the rush of women hoping to touch the bride became so aggressive, that the tradition of tossing the bouquet into the crowd was borne – while the groom and bride made a dash for the bridal suite!

Today, the bouquet toss has been transformed. Single female guests look forward to catching the wedding bouquet as a sign of being the next in line to be married. The perfect song can also add plenty of fun – playing ‘It’s Raining Men’ is just one example. The same can be said for Beyonce’s hit song, ‘Single Ladies‘ – just be sure to have the hook line “put a ring on it” queued up.

Have Yourself Some Fun

Cindi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ is one of the most popular bouquet toss songs around. Yet, with so many songs to pick from, a good strategy is to divide your favorite song options into three categories – serious, funny, or romantic. Next, think about the style of your planned wedding; is it a casual, low-key affair or more elegant and classic. Here’s the surprising bit – go with a bouquet song that is opposite your wedding reception style. Turn formal into spontaneous fun and informal into highbrow order.

It’s up to you, the bride, to determine the flavor along with the right amount of spice for the occasion. Injecting a bit of sweet sarcasm is one way to entertain your single female wedding guests. The Supremes’ classic melody ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ or Blondie’s rock-out hit ‘One Way or Another’ are great choices. Even the single guys will get a kick out of Dusty Springfield’s ‘Wishin And Hopin‘.
