Many times, a bridesmaid will wear her dress once and then store it away in the back of her closet after that special occasion. You don’t have to do that anymore! With today’s economy, it’s especially important to get as much mileage out of an outfit (whether it’s a special occasion dress or not) as possible. Style blogger and soon-to-be-bride, Jean from ExtraPetite.com has a few great ideas on how you can re-use that dress for many other occasions!

Since we here at the beautiful waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn in Maryland host hundreds of weddings every year, we pick up on popular trends pretty fast! For example, did you know that the garter removal and the garter toss are two separate activities, so it’s better to have two separate songs? That’s because we’ve noticed that the two activities have completely different vibes. Many grooms like to attribute the removal of the garter to the sexiness of their bride (like Foxy Lady by Jimi Hendrix). The garter toss is where it becomes a testosterone driven, men huddled event. So here are a few “bro”-appropriate songs for your garter toss:
- “Ain’t Nothin But a G Thang,” Dr. Dre
- “American Woman,” Lenny Kravitz or The Guess Who
- “Bad Boy for Life,” Puff Daddy
- “Thong Song,” Sisqo
- “Baby Got Back,” Sir Mix A Lot
- “Bad Boys” (Cops Theme), Inner Circle
- “Bad to the Bone,” George Thorogood
- “Who Let the Dogs Out,” Baha Men
- “Hey Man Nice Shot,” Filter
- “Big Pimpin,” Jay-Z
