Mother/Son Dance Songs!

May 2, 2013

Get your dancing shoes on because it’s time for some wedding music ideas!

We often hear that couples have a difficult time selecting a song for the mother/son dance and are often asked for suggestions.  So many love songs are (fittingly) about lovers, and NOT about parent/child relationships.  And for whatever reason, there seem to be more songs that are suited to the father/daughter dance than the mother/son, at least in terms of popularity but the mother/son dance is just as important as the father/daughter dance!  No, we don’t hear quite as often “mama’s little boy” as we do “daddy’s little girl” but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve songs too!

If you were struggling to find the perfect song for the groom to dance with his mama at your wedding, fret no more!  Here are some GREAT options, most sweet and sentimental, some with a little edge, but all fitting for the occasion and free of awkward lyrics.  Enjoy!


Haven’t heard of some of these songs?  Well, get YouTube, Spotify or iTunes and start listening!  Or, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, ask mom to spend an afternoon listening and deciding what the perfect song would be for the two of you!  Cheers!
