Top ideas for mother and son songs to dance to at your wedding

When it comes to the “first” or “special” dances that are at a wedding reception, it is expected for the bride and groom to take to the floor.

You may also see the bride and her father dance together too.

One dance that you might not normally see, but that can be quite a special moment, is a dance shared between the mother of the bride and her son.

Sometimes the idea of a mother and son dance could be a stand-alone moment in the entire wedding celebrations.

For other people they might decide to have the dance as an addition to the father and bride dance, inviting the groom and his mother onto the floor during the dance and towards the end.

If you are thinking of having a mother and son dance at your wedding, then you are going to need to pick the perfect song to take to the floor.

To help you to make the most memorable moment ever, we have put together our top mother and son dance song ideas.

You’ve Got A Friend In Me – Randy Newman

If you are a sentimental soul and you know that your mum is too, then You’ve Got A Friend In Me is a great song choice.

Not only is it a positive and slightly up-tempo tune (ideal if you are not keen on something too slow moving) but it also helps to conjure up happy childhood memories too.

Angels – Robbie Williams

One of the best loved drunken karaoke songs out there, Angels by Robbie Williams is also a great song to have at your wedding.

Not only is it packed full of emotion and a bit of sing-along track, but it is also thought that Robbie wrote this song for his own mum, which makes the lyrics seem even more fitting.

How Long Will I Love You – Ellie Goulding

If you and your mum have a close bond, then you are going to want to make sure that no matter what happens, you will also love her.

Aside from belting out a bit of Whitney, this is also another song dedicated to eternal love.

Whilst it is likely to be written from one partner to another, this doesn’t mean that the lyrics don’t work for the other special lady in your life.

The Best Day – Taylor Swift

For those who like the idea of not just standing and swaying, but also being able to have a bit of a dance, then this is a great song choice.

Taylor is know for her songs packed full of life experience, but for once this song is written about her mum, rather than a past lover!

As you can see, there are plenty of fantastic song choices out there if you think that this particular type of dance could be a great addition to your wedding day.

So, why not have a think about whether or not a mother and son dance could be the ideal way to celebrate your special family bond?
