This is a question that brides ask me all the time (so do their mothers)! This is really up to the bride and groom.
However, the current trend is to cut the cake about 10 to 15 minutes after the toast. This works out great because then the cutting of the cake is an extension of dinner, and this is customary with weddings that the bride and groom are the first to eat a piece of cake!
It is also the trend to pick out a song for the cutting of the cake. We have suggestions on our Music Express facebook page.
In the past, a couple of decades ago the cutting of the cake would occur about 30-45 minutes after dinner and the first dance.
It is really your decision how you would like to handle this.
You want to make your wedding great; so, you better start planning. You need to find a venue, a caterer, a photographer, a dress, invitations, an entertainer…slow down for a minute! Yes you have to find all of these things, but you also have to prioritize. Many people wait to the last-minute to find a dj for their wedding; not realizing that the best ones get booked first! Popular djs might be booked 6 months to a 1.5 years ahead of time!
Make sure you put the dj up there with the venue, photographer, and caterer.
One of the great things a really great dj can do for you is introduce you to your guests for you first dance while sharing your love story that has brought you there. They can even provide pre-recorded clips ahead of time from the bride or the groom to each other.
This is just one example of how a great dj can make things really special for you.
Make sure you make great memories on your wedding day!
