Get your tissues ready, because it's time for the mother-son dance. Similar to the father-daughter dance, the mother-son dance is a tender moment shared between the groom and his mother (or mother-figure) in the midst of the big day to show gratitude for the person that made it all possible. This dance typically takes place right after the father-daughter dance, which traditionally follows the first dance between the newlyweds.
As the groom, your mother is likely the one who stood by you and nurtured you through the years, safely delivering you to the love of your life and the next chapter of your journey. When deciding on which song to play while you take her for a sweet spin around the dance floor on your wedding day, consider what type of music your mom loves. Is she into oldies, or would she appreciate something more modern? Although we love the idea of a tender and heartfelt moment, maybe you and your mom want a nontraditional upbeat song to dance to. Think about your relationship and personalities, and choose a song that represents them best.
Below, we've rounded up 65 songs that capture the love between a son and his mother (we might've shed a tear or two while doing so).
