Some Very Special Mother/Son Songs

Last month, we shared a list of our Very Favorite Father/Daughter Songs.  In this post, we wanted to show our Grooms and Moms a little love.

Let’s face it, when it comes to the special dances at a wedding, most of the attention is focused on the bride and the much anticipated father/daughter dance. But hey, every Mom deserves to have a special moment with her son as well!  The mother/son dance is one of the most touching traditions to take place at wedding receptions. Choosing the perfect song for this dance can prove to be a little difficult, so here’s a list of our all-time favorites.  Warning: you may want to grab a tissue before giving these songs a listen!

Our Very Favorite Father/Daughter Songs

It’s undeniable: the bond between a father and his daughter is special and sacred ( hello… just think of George and Annie in Father of the Bride! ).  Therefore, having the opportunity to share a Father/Daughter dance at her wedding, is often something a bride dreams about before she even meets her husband to be.  For a father, this dance honors that special relationship, but also serves as the acknowledgement and acceptance of a new man in a his daughter’s life.
As the choice of this song carries so much significance, it’s easy to feel pressured to make it just perfect.  Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of our all-time favorites, to help you choose the song that fits your relationship best.
