WEDDING MUSIC GUIDE

Mother / Groom Dance

SONG SELECTIONS

Looking for the best songs for your Mother/Groom Dance? The following is a curated playlist of Mother/Groom Dance song ideas that sons and their mothers will love dancing to!

Typically, Grooms should choose the song that he and his mother would dance to, but it is also acceptable to have the Mother of the Groom select the song. If the Groom will be dancing with two mothers in his life—his mother and step-mother—two options are available. The Groom can either dance with both women to the same song, or the groom can select two songs for a dance with both his mother and step-mother. Grooms, you may want to dance to a shortened version of each song.

As you consider Mother/Groom Dance songs, keep in mind the song doesn’t need to be about a mother and her son. A good Mother/Groom song can simply be about love or dedication. Alternatively, something silly, upbeat, and light-hearted can be selected for a fun moment between mother and son!

Enjoy the Mother/Groom Dance songs below, and as always, a Spotify playlist is included at the end for your listening enjoyment!
