Mother – Son Dance

The Mother-Son dance is a typical part of most wedding receptions. This is where the groom and his mother enjoy a dance together. This is typically a rather important part of the wedding reception and can be an enjoyable time for both parties.

Just like the first dance with the bride and groom this time is a nice moment to sneak in some extra time with your loved one. Use this moment to thank them for all they’ve done, tell them that you love them and enjoy this peaceful moment together.

For this dance the song choice should reflect upon the relationship of the two people whom are dancing.

So we compiled a list of different songs, for you to peak at. We hope you find a song that speaks to your groom, whether he is a bit of a momma’s boy or more like his mother’s favorite tough guy.
