Cake Cutting

Just like in any other wedding, a traditional part of the wedding reception is the Cake Cutting where the couple share their first task as husband and wife. It’s a romantic part of the wedding reception, and it is only fitting to choose the perfect song to celebrate this! The song you choose for the cake cutting should be fun, a bit romantic, and even sentimental.

You could stick with classic songs such as “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar and “Cut the Cake” by Average White Band, or something a bit modern like “Yummy” by Justin Bieber. No matter what song you choose, always remember to have fun with it!
