mother son dance photo ideas cover

Like the Father-Daughter dance, the mother-son dance is one of the most touching moments of the entire wedding day. In this intimate portion of the wedding reception, the groom and his mother have a chance to share a dance together. In a way, this is a sort of “goodbye” for mother and son (something many of the songs in this list touch on). Such a powerful moment deserves a great soundtrack !

To help you find the right song for your Mother-Son wedding reception dance, we’ve listed our 175 most popular recent requests that we expect to be popular again in 2022.
