Top 20 Cake Cutting & Bouquet Toss Song Choices

by Monday 29th June 2020blog

Are you struggling to choose your songs for the cake cutting and your bouquet toss? I often find that couples struggle to decide on these songs more than the ceremony and first dance, there are no set rules for this, it is personal to what you and your partner like. However, the most popular style for the cake cut would be more of a romantic song whereas the bouquet toss is a lot more upbeat and a bit of fun. 

I would recommend going for these styles of songs if they are to your taste to fit with the tone as this will enhance the atmosphere, with the cake cutting being an intimate romantic moment whereas the bouquet toss is a light-hearted and fun part of the evening. Combining a great song choice with your award-winning DJ’s experience of staging your DJ will be able to make these moments unforgettable.

I often say to couples if you have a certain romantic song that you wanted to incorporate into the day time but couldn’t find the right opportunity, your cake cut would be a great place to play this. To help with your decisions I have put together below a list of our couples top 20 song choices for these important traditions in the evening reception.
