The Best Cake-Cutting Songs for Your Wedding

After dinner will come the time-honored tradition of cutting your wedding cake, with lots of pictures taken that will grace your wedding album. All eyes will be on you as you cut into the cake together, representing the first activity done as a couple.

While some couples prefer to do this quietly in the corner without a lot of fanfare, this is a memorable moment that symbolizes your love and commitment to one another that your guests love to see. So shift the spotlight to your dessert showstopper, and personalize this tradition even more with a cake-cutting song befitting the moment!

Here, Jason Jani of SCE Event Group shares a great list of some obvious and not so obvious cake-cutting songs that will set the sweet mood—from all styles and eras. He even put together a Spotify song list, where you can listen to each one to make your decision. This tradition isn’t as formal as other wedding must-haves, so have fun with it! And let them eat cake!
