Mother/Son Dance Favorites

Shannon Sano Photography via Style Me Pretty

If your groom wants to honor his mother by having a special dance, here are some great songs to choose from. Many of them overlap with father/daughter songs, but for the sake of completeness I have listed them in their own categories. There is certainly nothing wrong with just playing one song, and having a father/daughter and mother/son dance simultaneously, but having a separate mother/son dance is great too. Your day, your call. Here are some favorites for the mother/son dance.
