Cake Cutting Song Options

You’re probably asking yourself what type of song should I play while we cut the cake? Before you check out our custom Spotify Playlist, consider these details…

  • To smash or not to smash. Do you plan on smearing that slice of cake frosting first into your fiance’s face? If you want that fun, silly moment, we suggest an upbeat song!
  • Wedding cake as a symbolic detail. The wedding cake can really be a focal point of the wedding reception. (The cake cutting is often one of wedding photographers’ favorite images to capture.) Couples spend a lot of time, money and effort into decorating their wedding cake and transforming their baked goods into part of their wedding decor. If this is the case, a slow-paced song may be a great option to narrate this special moment.

When Should You Cut Your Wedding Cake?

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.

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.

Whenever you decide to cut your cake, your Mike Staff Wedding DJ will know your plans in advance. Your DJ will arrive early and communicate with venue staff to ensure that everyone is on the “same page.”
