I’m looking for suggestions for upbeat and sort of humorous song ideas for cake cutting and for our “Dollar” Dance. We’re not taking any money…just wishes on our wish tree…but I want the chance to dance with everyone and would rather in not be a mushy slow song. I want to boogie with my girlfriends too.
Some others we’re including for reference…
“Grand Entrance” at reception: Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash
Recessional at ceremony: When I’m 64 by the Beatles

“If I had a million dollars”
“I want to be a billionaire, so freakin bad”
“Money, Money, Money”

@Brenda_L: We love the song “If I had a million dollars”, so I think I’m going to use it anyway, but we’re not asking $$ so the typical money themed songs might be confusing.
Thanks for the ideas. I love the “Eat it” idea. I hadn’t thought about eating themed songs. Maybe “Hungry Like the Wolf?” It’s a Rock Band favorite.

We used “rolling in the deep” by Adele, by the time we were even asked for it by our DJ we were definitely just over the whole wedding planning thing. We decided to go non-cliche’ and that song was my omg-turn-this-up!! song on the radio at that very moment. Still love it and will always remember that we cut our cake to it but nobody says you HAVE to go with something traditional.

Well if you want to dance with everyone it will have to be a pretty long song I guess (I don’t really know what a dollar dance is) Or you do a couple upbeat oldies songs because everyone loves to dance to oldies. A funny one to throw in there would be “If You Want to be Happy” by Jimmy Soul. I want to use it in my wedding somewhere because it is just so funny.
For the cake you could use “Sugar Shack” by Jimmy Gilmer or (my pic) “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies.

Another funny one would be Runaround Sue (if you choose to look at it as funny and not about cheating LOL) Also Save the Last Dance for Me would be cute.

We’re doing I do, I do, I do by ABBA for our cake cutting. I am a huge ABBA fan and I think it’s such a cutesy/fun song to include in a wedding.
