The Mother Son Dance is one we like to leave up to you. It’s an important moment and one that often contains a good amount of sentiment. However, we are always happy to make recommendations when asked. One piece of advice we always give is to consider a song with appropriate lyrical content.
Many slow songs are written with a romantic tone. A song you would dance to with your new wife might not be a song you would want to dance to with your mother, so always listen to the lyrics to make sure it’s something you are comfortable dancing to in front of your guests.
