A time honored tradition since the 15th century, yet still a popular activity in today's wedding events. According to various historic sources, bouquets were introduced into weddings centuries ago for the shear purpose of masking a brides body odor on her wedding day.

      During this time frame, it was not uncommon for Europeans to bathe once a year (typically in May), and if a bride were to be wed, a wedding date was usually held the following month (in June). Additionally, as a wedding is a Bride's lucky day, it was thought that a bride was so lucky on her wedding day, that guests would literally tear pieces of her wedding dress as good luck tokens throughout the event. In lieu of having her wedding gown torn to shreds, a bride would often give away her bouquet to a lucky lady during an event, hence where the tradition of the bouquet toss originates.

      Obviously, in present times a bouquet no longer serves the same purpose as it did in the 15th century however, the tradition still remains a fun and even silly activity which also allows for a moment of “woman independence” in today's weddings. In order to keep the party going when the bouquet toss occurs, it is imperative to choose a fun, upbeat and entertaining song for the bouquet toss. Below Top Notch has listed our top bouquet toss song recommendations.
