Fabulous wedding cake-cutting songs

The cake cutting ceremony at your Estes Park wedding is significant. It’s the first act bride and groom do together as a married couple. Such an auspicious event demands a fabulous wedding cake-cutting song.

Let me tell you, there are some greats one from which to choose!

“How Sweet it Is (to be loved by you)”

The obvious approach is to pick a song about the sweetness of the moment. It doesn’t get much better than James Taylor’s cover of “How Sweet It Is (to be loved by you).”

The lyrics blend with the moment perfectly.

I want to stop (stop) and thank you, baby

I just want to stop and thank you, baby, hey now

How sweet it is to be loved by you, oh, baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you, yes it is.

Take a listen …

“Sugar, Sugar”

In case that’s not sweet enough, you can always go with the Archie’s “Sugar Sugar.” These lyrics are so sweet, they may give you a cavity:

Sugar, ah honey honey

You are my candy girl

And you got me wanting you

Honey, ah sugar sugar

You are my candy girl

And you’ve got me wanting you.

“Today Was a Fairy Tale”

Taylor Swift has a nice top ten song written in 2010 that works beautifully for the cake cutting: “Today Was a Fairy Tale:”

The lyrics revel in a magical day:

Today was a fairytale

You were the prince

I used to be a damsel in distress

You took me by the hand and you picked me up at six

Today was a fairytale.

“When I’m 64”

For a different approach, consider the Beatles, “When I’m 64.” It’s a song about lovers growing old together, a perfect fit for couples at the beginning of their journey together:

When I get older losing my hair

Many years from now

Will you still be sending me a Valentine

Birthday greetings bottle of wine

If I’d been out till quarter to three

Would you lock the door

Will you still need me, will you still feed me

When I’m sixty-four

You’ll be older too

And if you say the word

I could stay with you.

Here’s a remastered cut of the song from the Sergeant Peppers’ album with Paul McCartney on lead vocals:


A year before the Beatles recorded “When I’m 64,” Nat King Cole recorded a catchy hit simply called, “Love.” This is a delightful song for your cake-cutting ceremony.

Listen to the great lyrics (by Milt Gabler):

L is for the way you look at me

O is for the only one I see

V is very, very extraordinary

E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you

Love is more than just a game for two

Two in love can make it

Take my heart and please don’t break it

Love was made for me and you.

“Sweet Thing”

For a ‘sweet’ country song, you can’t go wrong with Keith Urban’s “Sweet Thing:”

Sweet thing. The moon is high and the night is young

Come on and meet me

In the backyard under the Cottonwood tree, it’s a good thing

Am I’m wishin’. Ah c’mon sweet thing.
