70 Sweet Wedding Cake Cutting Songs

Last Updated: 14th February 2022

Cutting the cake with your new husband or wife is a truly celebratory part of your special day, with cheering, clapping and smiles – and it deserves an amazing song to reflect this! That’s why we’ve put together a list of 70 wedding cake cutting songs to help you choose.

If you’re going to cut the cake then let everyone get on with partying, one song might be enough. If you’re going full-on traditional and cutting a slice to feed to each other (or cover each other’s faces!) and then sharing the rest with your guests, you’ll probably need more than one song.

Traditionally, couples cut their wedding cake after their wedding breakfast, just before their first dance. For this reason, you might want to choose an upbeat song that will help get your guests in the mood for the epic party that will undoubtedly ensue afterwards. Alternatively you might want your guests to have tears in their eyes at the sight of you and your partner sharing this sweet moment together and would prefer a romantic number. It’s totally up to you!

Songs that have references to sweetness and sugar can be fun to use so we’ve included lots of these in the list to help you make this part of the day as saccharin sweet as you want.

Thank you to Alice & Dawn for this rockin' review! 🤘Radio Avenue killed it! 😄"...We rocked out for the entire afternoon to some of our favourite songs - and I, in particular, lived my emo fantasy haha. They were friendly and funny, making the crowd laugh and get involved. They also didn't mind our awful singing! We'd highly recommend Radio Avenue - and hope they end up playing even bigger events in the future! Amazing talent and they looked the part too. Thank you!" ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️See more 👉 ... See MoreSee Less
