Having a mother-son dance for the groom and the mother of the groom is becoming a growing tradition for weddings. It emphasizes the fact that the wedding is about the bride and the groom, and each of their families coming together. This dance is complimentary to the father daughter dance and is similar in that the lyrics to the song they choose should usually be meaningful, non-romantic, and relatively easy to dance to. This type of song can be hard to find, so we put together a list of 20 songs that make for a great mother-son dance.
