‘Sweet’ Wedding Cake Cutting Songs

Follow by Email

Let them eat (wedding) cake!

But before you do, you have to cut the cake, which means you’ll need the perfect song to narrate the moment! Don’t worry — our team of DJ’s at Mike Staff Productions got this!  Check out our NEW Spotify Playlist!

When to Cut or When Not to Cut – That is the Question!  

A very common question during wedding planning is when to cut the wedding cake! The big debate: before or after dinner. Well, if you’ve been to a wedding in the last decade, you’ve probably noticed the cake cutting ceremony is usually performed immediately following the grand entrance, before the wedding party toasts begin.

Might seem odd considering no one would be eating cake at that point — I mean, dinner wouldn’t have been served yet! It’s all about flow & timing — cutting the cake before dinner allows your serving staff to clear and cut the cake during dinner service and have it ready once the dinner plates are clear.

Cake Cutting Music

Cutting your cake or cupcakes is a wedding day highlight! A moment that will, more than likely, end up in your wedding album or video highlight reel and a moment that puts all eyes on you and your (new) spouse at the reception — especially if a piece of cake is being smashed in the bride or groom’s face (just don’t do it) — hence the reason why you need the perfect song. We asked our wedding DJs for a list of the most popular cake cutting songs.
