Since I love just about any type of genre (except for vulgar gangsta rap), you will find all kinds of things from pop, love songs, oldies, soft rock, classic rock, hard rock, techno, disco, hip hop, Christian and the list goes on. But to start off with my very first music post, I thought I would share something from my sister's wedding playbook. She is uber creative when it comes to song selections and we had so much fun with all the choices at her wedding three years ago.
If you've got the funny bone for it, this is the song she played as the DJ called all the 'single' fellas out onto the floor for the garter removal and toss. You can skip to 1:00 in as that is where the chorus begins and she had her DJ start the song at that point :)
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers (Even the Losers)
Now once the guys were on the floor and this song had been playing, it was time for the groom to dive under that dress and remove the garter...which he of course did with his teeth (and a little bit of a vulgar movement that I will not go into detail about - but you can see it in this post in the 3rd video down). But when he finally emerged with the garter in his teeth, my sis instructed him to look hard at the garter. She surprised him with a San Diego Chargers football garter in the team colors and with a football charm on it - it's his like lifetime favorite team! To which, at that point, when this little tidbit was noticed, the DJ began to play this funny theme song (I threw in a little funny music video that some kids did to the song for your own viewing enjoyment):

So what do you think, fellow brides? Is she funny or what? What are your plans for your garter removal and toss song? Anything? Though I have selected so many songs for the other elements of our big day, the 3 songs I have not yet selected are the garter toss, bouquet toss and cake cutting (sigh). I will definitely be enlisting the baby sis' help!
