We've been talking lately about the unique songs played during the wedding garter ceremony. There are lots of different ways that the wedding garter removal and toss can happen at a couple's wedding reception, but the one thing that is constant…there will be music! I just can't imagine a just married couple doing the garter toss without some tunes to help the tradition along.

I have list of garter toss songs from Washington DC area wedding DJ, Mydeejay. This list is for songs that DJ's often play during the toss part of the wedding garter ceremony. Remember, we talked about this a few posts ago, the wedding garter ceremony at most receptions is broken into two parts (toss and removal) each with their own song. So, when you are picking a song for your garter toss, you'll need to pick not one, but TWO songs! Truth!

The best part of this list of garter toss songs is that it is real! These songs are from Mydeejay's past real weddings! Can't get any better – or more real – than that!
