The Mother-Son Dance Song: Finding The Right Tune
Updated: Aug 16
The mother-of-the-groom dance is a time-honored tradition at many weddings and though it’s not necessary to include one at your reception, the mother-son dance is a sweet moment for the groom to honor and recognize his mom or any mother figure in his life. And let’s be real, mom has probably been looking forward to this moment for a long time.
The mother-son dance typically happens around the time of the father-daughter duet, which is usually after the bride and groom’s first dance. However, you can always switch things up—some couples even use the family dances to transition between different parts of the reception like from cocktail hour to reception or from reception to the opening of the dance floor).
The song for the mother-son dance can be hard to pin down, so consider what artists, genres, or memories are beloved by both mother and son when trying to find the right music. Maybe mom introduced her son to Southern Soul Blues; maybe they both love R&B or Hip Hop?
To help you make a decision, we gathered a few mother-of-the-groom dance songs. From classics to modern hits, these songs span generations, linking mother and son through music for the perfect dance.
