Bouquet Toss Song | Run The World


I have meaning to do this post for awhile, and keep forgetting about it… maybe because of my generally negative feelings toward the bouquet toss. The moment I heard this song though, I thought, “what an epic bouquet toss song!” Although I loathe the tradition (feel free to read my feelings about it here), if you feel the need to subject all your single girlfriends to a few torturous minutes of humiliation, you may as well do it to a song that makes them feel like a bad a** instead of a desperate social outcast. Um, sorry… I got a little carried away there. (Note: the sarcasm is all in good fun, I do not actually think you’re evil for including a time honored tradition on your wedding day.) Anywho… Beyonce basically has pretty much owned the world of bouquet tossing for the last couple of years with Single Ladies, and I wish I could say I am offering up a gem by another artist, but Beyonce cannot help herself and she has done it again. I think I might not mind participating in a bouquet toss if this song was playing. Although I warn you, the feisty girls who already have a tendency to pummel people and steal the bouquet might get extra crazy due to the girls-are-powerful nature of the song.

I will stop talking now and let you watch the awesome video. It makes me want to go slay a dragon or something.

If you want to go against the grain and not play Beyonce at your wedding, check out other bouquet toss songs here.

P.S. I think I need to take a picture with my bridesmaids like the one (above) from the movie. It’s fantastic.

I think I saw a dragon on the meadow last night when I was checking out the full moon ~ too bad you weren’t here! : )

Fun idea for a bouquet toss song!

My husband and I just watched Bridesmaids on dvd on Saturday…super, super funny! And I am right there with you on the bouquet toss. I did not subject anyone at our wedding to that either and when I photograph weddings, I am always so grateful when I find out the couple has chosen not to do either toss…I just think the whole thing is tacky. Good to know I’m not alone 😉
