Cutting your wedding cake is a classic moment that a lot of guests look forward to (mainly because that means they get to eat cake soon). Choosing to have a traditional cake cutting at your wedding is entirely up to you. The modern version of the cake cutting tradition represents a couple’s first activity done together showing unity.
Talk with your caterer about the best time to cut your cake so they have enough time to cut slices and serve to your guests. Some great opportunities for cutting your cake are right after you are introduced into the room or before your first dance.
Unlike your first dance and parent dances, a cake cutting song doesn’t have be very personal. A lot of couples choose songs that are more related to the idea of eating cake – hence the many song titles with the word “sugar” and “sweet” in them.
