We are using "Cut The Cake"  by the "average white band"  .... generic I know , but we had a hard time with this , we are cutting the cake before dinner while everyone is still paying attention , but the vibe will still be pretty mellow at this point , so we didn't want to jar everyone with loud thumping music before dinner.   This song makes us laugh because it actually kinda sounds like bad 70's "adult film" music ... so we went with it ... ha!

Cut the Cake is indeed a fun song, yet I have seldom used it at weddings for my clients.  It's still a great song to play. 


Most of my clients often choose "When I'm 64" by the Beatles.  I often follow it up with "Love and Marriage" by Frank Sinatra when when get to the part when the bride and groom feed each other.   


I'm curious to know whether the songs mentioned in this article were selected from an actual survey or were they picked out based on someone's opinion of songs they felt appropriate.   


Two songs from the above list that I would definitely recommend are "That's Amore" and "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" by James Taylor

We are using Jill Scott's "It's Love" I love it because she talks about food and it has a great Go-Go beat to it!

We used "Yummy Yummy Yummy I got Love in my Tummy" by Ohio Express.  I really wanted "Sugar Sugar" by the Archies, but this was one of the few things DH had a strong opinion about, so we went with it.


The only reason I even thought about a cake cutting song was b/c of PW!!  woo hoo!

My husband and I are renewing our vows, your recommendation of Everlasting Love by Natalie Cole is the perfect song for our cake cutting. Thanks for you suggestions, they are a big help to me.

I may do the song by James Taylor, but Michael Buble does a wonderful version of it..

I guess I'm behind in the times but I didn't know you needed a song for cutting the cake! I still think the cake cutting is one of the strangest things to do at your wedding but then again it would be strange not to do it either.

We are going with That's Amore. It was playing as we entered the restraunt where we first proposed to each other.
