“Sugar, Sugar” – The Archies

This song is sweet, lighthearted, and appropriately named! Using this number as your cake-cutting song ensures an adorable vibe and the perfect moment for the video cameras — no one can resist the lyric “I just can’t believe the loveliness of loving you.” For the romantic couple, this song is a perfect fit.

“Marry You” – Bruno Mars

That’s apropos. This smash hit from Bruno Mars is meant to be played at every wedding, but making this the anthem for your cake-cutting ceremony will make you and your spouse remember all the reasons why you’re cutting your cake together in that moment.

“Better Together” – Jack Johnson

This romantic, acoustic hit makes for a lovely cake-cutting ceremony. Jack Johnson’s understated tone and comforting guitar strums create an atmosphere of pure love and warmth.

“Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Def Leppard

This one’s for the wild, exciting wedding party. While you may not be able to dance to a rock song to commemorate your marriage, you can definitely get down to this one for your cake-cutting ceremony — just don’t get too messy!

“Sugar” – Maroon 5

This iconic song from Maroon 5 is one of the most popular songs for cake-cutting for a reason. It’s fun, poppy, and so irresistibly good. The best part about this song is its inherently fun vibe, but it’s also got a romantic touch. For some extra fun, check out the music video where the band crashes as many weddings as possible — you might get some inspiration!
