Why Have A Garter Toss At Your Wedding?

Now, while the garter toss isn’t a necessary part of the wedding, it’s still a good tradition to keep up, especially if you’re also having a bouquet toss! 

That’s because aside from it being a fun and lighthearted tradition that you can look forward to, it also symbolizes good luck and fertility for you as newlyweds. In fact, that’s what the tradition originally started as when couples first started doing it during the medieval times. 

Now, however, it’s a moment that brings laughter and joy to both the couple and their guests, and who wouldn’t want to have more unforgettable memories to look back on years from now? Not us, that’s for sure!

Tips For Choosing Wedding Garter Toss Songs

  • Consider Your Audience – Before anything, make sure to keep your guests in mind when selecting songs. After all, your parents, grandparents, and in-laws will be there, so make sure to pick tunes that will appeal to all ages, especially if you want to put your best foot forward!
  • Reflect Your Style – Hey, you can’t go wrong with showing off your personality. You are with some of the closest people in your life, after all. So make sure to pick songs that will reflect who you truly are, and release your inner quirks!
  • Keep It Light and Fun – The garter toss is all about having a good time, so choose upbeat and catchy songs that will get everyone in the mood to celebrate, especially if you’re using it to transition into the reception afterparty
  • Coordinate with Your Wedding DJ – Whether you’re picking a wedding garter toss song or the main wedding playlist itself, don’t forget to work with your wedding DJ! Keep in mind that they’re the experts in this area, and they should be able to provide some extra insight that will make your celebration even better! 
  • Practice Makes Perfect – Consider practicing the garter toss beforehand to ensure everything goes smoothly on the big day. And hey, that’s an extra “spicy” bonding moment between you and your partner *wink wink*

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
