That’s why I’ve compiled a list of the all the songs my couples chose for their cake cutting in 2017. Ranging anywhere from classics to recent pop hits to “out of left fielders” and everything in between, I hope these top cake cutting songs from last year will inspire your decision for your own wedding.

Our 2017 Cake Cutting Songs

Sugar, Sugar – The Archies

This is a classic mid tempo choice, for the bride and groom who want a throwback to older times.

Ain’t it Sweet – Phil Cook

A little bit of southern rock, a little bit of country, and a little bit of folk, this song is perfect for the couple who wants a simple, laid back vibe to their day!

Love You Madly – Cake

Astute guests will understand the significance of this song for the cake cutting (one in particular approached me at this wedding and said as much!). A great choice for the “thinking” couple who wants to test the wits of their guests.

Sugar – Maroon 5 (x2)

This has become a classic choice in recent years, for obvious reasons. Upbeat and fun, everybody will enjoy the smooth pop sound of Maroon 5!

Little Apple – Chopstick Brothers

This is an excellent choice for the offbeat bride and groom looking to do something a little different–especially if they love Asian culture!

How Sweet it is – James Taylor

I’m not sure which version I love more–this one, or Michael Buble’s. Either way, this is another classic choice!

Pachelbel Meets U2 – John Schmidt

This gives a bit of a slower, more romantic vibe to the cake cutting; classical, but still gives a nod to the hits of the day.

Say Hey (I Love You) – Michael Franti & Spearhead

This is a super fun choice! It’s upbeat, got a bit of a reggae feel, but guests are sure to recognize this hit.

Let Me Call You Sweetheart – Bing Crosby

This is about as classic as it gets! Bing’s sultry vocals will soothe the ears of your guests while you cut the cake.

Sweet Pea – Amos Lee

This sweet, simple song is a great choice for fans of folk/pop music.

Marry You – Bruno Mars

An upbeat choice for the couple who loves pop, and wants the cake cutting to be a big, exciting affair!

Love on Top – Beyonce

Also for pop fans, this sweet choice is romantic, but with Beyonce’s signature, soulful, sound.

Be Our Guest – Beauty and the Beast Soundtrack

Rounding out our list is a super fun selection for the bride and groom who have always wanted to live out the adventures of their favorite Disney heroes and heroines!
