Mother & Son Songs

For the mother & son dance, choose music that reflects the bond between the two people involved. It doesn't have to be a family favourite, but something about the title, lyrics or melody should have personal significance and resonate with the guests, too. 


These 20 classics will get you started. 


Remember, every wedding is different and special. These may not work for you but they should help in choosing your mother & son song!
