Mother - Son wedding dance

We have been blown away by the hype that is the father- daughter wedding dance. While this is a beautiful emotional moment and definitely a highlight for any bride at her wedding, we have almost forgotten or maybe become selfish about the grooms emotional needs (yeah I said that).

There is a deep, oft time deeper connection between a son and his mother. Sons have a glowing admiration for their moms and it is often harder to express it unlike us girls. Thus, a wedding is a perfect time for a groom to express his love for mama and be thankful for all the years of making mama cry and all those years that mama never gave up on him.  What better way to show this than with  a Mother - Son dance at his wedding.

I copped this video from YouTube. Very touching and cute. The groom and his mum rocked to the Boyz II Men ballad, A Song for Mama. He even grabbed his mama's butt... and funnily enough it wasn't gross. Definitely a "hanky" moment. Please enjoy

Below also are my top 10 Mother - Son Wedding songs

  • A Song for Mama - Boyz II Men
  • I knew I loved you - Savage Garden
  • You raise me up - Josh Groban
  • You had me from hello - Kenny Chesney
  • Wind beneath my wings - Bette Milder
  • I'm your Angel - R.kelly and Celine Dion
  • Dear Mama - Tupac
  • You are my sunshine - Remember that nursery rhyme, lol
  • Because you loved me - Celine Dion
  • Have I told you lately that I love you - Rod Stewart

And my all time favourite, Sweet Mother by Nigerian/ Cameroonian high-life singer, Prince Nico Mbarga.


  1. Awwww! too cute

  2. Ooooh! good ol' Sweet mother. My husband and mum must dance to it at our wedding o! but I also woulda loved a ballad like Wind beneath my wings or something

    1. I think you can do a medley of some sort. A live band will be the best bet for this but if you aren't using a live band you can get your DJ to create a mix of the songs you want. My suggested medley would be some lines each from Sweet Mother/Because You Loved Me/A Song for Mama then finish up with something upbeat like Tupac's Dear Mama

  3. grabbing his mama's butt was too cute I swear down

  4. Is it that normal you are my sunshine nursery rhyme?
    "You are my sunshine,
    My only sunshine
    You make me happy when skies are gray
    You never know this
    How much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away"

    1. Yes darling.. Wouldn't it be too cute to rock to a song like that. Great for evoking childhood memories too

  5. whao.... so sweet oh... loving every minute of the dance , wish i have a dance with my son..LOL :)
