The tossing of the bouquet is one of the most fun and exciting moments of any wedding.
All single ladies gather around as the bride who tosses her bouquet to them (backwards or blindfolded).
According to wedding folklore, whomever catches the bouquet will be the next to wed!
It’s a really fun moment that deserves an equally fun song and we’ve compiled a list of 10 favourites (from 10 to 1, of course).
