When it comes to the bouquet toss, music can make (or break) the moment. Whether you want to liven things up with a sassy pop anthem or make it saccharine sweet with a country hit, you'll find tunes across every genre in our roundup of the best wedding bouquet toss songs.

Unsurprisingly, Beyoncé makes quite possibly the best songs for throwing the bouquet. Aside from Queen Bey's classics, there are many more songs you should definitely consider. Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," Fergie's "Glamorous," and Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T." would all be perfect choices (and well worth putting on your wedding playlist for the rest of the reception, if not as bouquet toss songs). Read on and get inspired!
