29 of the Best Mother-Son Wedding Dance Songs

29 of the Best Mother-Son Wedding Dance Songs

Time for a playlist update! Our Mike Staff Production DJs wanted to re-visit this topic because they have been getting a lot of questions when it comes to finding the perfect mother-son wedding dance song. It can be tricky. It’s one of the few moments when all eyes are on the groom — you don’t want awkward song lyrics but you want those lyrics to tell your story.

We turned to Spotify to build a better selection of songs for you to choose from. You’re going to find classics from The Beatles, to new hits from Adele. Something you can always count on, our wedding DJs are always on top of the music trends but know the standards that pull at the heartstrings. 

Let’s start with what mom likes: is she a country gal? Prefer the classics? Or does she appreciate good ‘ol fashioned rock n’ roll? Crank up the playlist — you’ll know the right song when you hear it!
