25 Most Popular 'Mother/Son' Dance Songs
Written by Michael Liedtke on October 15th, 2018
Well, here we are...

Your wedding is coming up and you're drawing a blank on which song to play during the Mother/Son dance, right?

Well you're in luck!

After our last blog where we listed our most popular 'First Dance' songs so far, many people had requested that we make more lists like that one. 

So, we have compiled a list of 25 of the most requested 'Mother and Son' dance songs so far, and it contains quite a few classics, with a mix of songs that you may not have thought of. 

Whether these songs strike up old memories of you growing up with your mom (or whoever you choose to dance with during this portion of your wedding), or if the lyrics perfectly explain your relationship with her, we hope this list can guide you in the right direction of picking the right song. 

However, before we get started, I want to hand out a few quick tips!

1. If you mom is unavailable or chooses not to dance during this portion for whatever reason, you do not have nix the mother/son dance altogether. Many previous clients have either danced with siblings, their children, or other family or friends who may have stepped in as a mother role. 

It is ultimately your wedding, so it's up to you on who you want to dance with. 

2. Many of these songs are pretty long, have lengthy intros, or have a specific part that you want to dance to. That being said, don't be afraid to ask your DJ to start (or end) the song at a specific point in the song. 

Also, many clients usually just dance for about 1-2 minutes, so you can definitely request that your DJ/Band only play the song for a select amount of time. 

3. There are many awesome ideas for dances, so don't be afraid to get creative! I can't tell you how many clients I've seen who have done choreographed dances with their loved ones.
