It is well known that daughters are closer to their fathers and sons are closer to their mothers. After the father-daughter dance, it’s mother’s turn to glow together with her son. They are both parents and they both deserve a last moment with their beloved boys and girls before “they give them away” to their new loves. If the farther-daughter dance has a rich tradition in the past, the mother-son dance is relatively new. It’s an additional reason to beautify the event.
The mother-son dance is one of the most special parts of the wedding reception. The groom dances with his mother to bring her a tribute for all her love and care, for being the man that he is. Mothers are very excited about the song picked by their sons just for them. The song usually brings tears to the eyes of all guests. The whole moment makes mothers feel loved, cherished and proud of the men they grew up.
Like in all the other cases, there are some things you must remember when choosing the right parent dance songs to play. The message of the song must describe the exact relationship you have with your mom. The song holds a special meaning to both the mom and the groom. It can be something from your past, a nice memory for the first lady of his life.
Talk to your mother directly, or if you want to surprise her, ask suggestions from family members and friends. You can also browse the internet and you will find plenty of songs you can choose from. If you want to save time and tears, one option would be to dance on the same song picked for the father-daughter dance, but it is difficult to find a song suitable for both cases. In some cases the mother is the one to choose the song as a dedication to her son.
A song considered by many to be the perfect choice for the mother-son song is the famous A mother’s song by Tony Carter, a song that was specially written for such occasions. The song is full of advices from the mother to her son all along the way regarding his new life as a married man. Surveys show that it was the most requested song for such occassions in 2009.
