Best & Most Popular Mother & Son Dance Songs

Most people are familiar with the father and daughter dance. It appears at almost every wedding, but a less common tradition is the mother and son dance.

Because this is a relatively newer tradition, the song selection varies quite a bit and is more representative of the personal taste of the mother and son than what is popular. Unfortunately there aren't many guidelines to this one, but here are few suggestions to make it great.

Suggestions for Choosing a Song:

  • Choose a song that is familiar to both the mother and son
  • Choose a song that is sentimental, but not overly so to avoid too many tears
  • Choose something moderate to slow
  • Decide if you prefer something unique or popular
  • Decide if you want something contemporary or classic
From our experience, we have put together a list of songs that people have chosen. Unfortunately we don't get too many repeats in a year so this list is less about popularity, but instead an assortment of suggestions.
