If you finding some Popular Mother Son Wedding Songs to Dance On then you are at right place. Just like the bond between a father and daughter is very strong and special, same is the case with mother and son. It is a natural inclination that each child gravitates towards the parent of the opposite gender and this is what is the basis of the strong bond that mothers and sons share. The occasion when a son gets married is a very special occasion for the mother but also one that is rife with many and often conflicting emotions.
On the one hand a mother is very happy to see that her son is settling with a girl of his choice. She is happy that he will have someone special in his life who will be there for him through all events that life will bring him. But on the other hand there will be a small kernel of envy in her heart when she realizes that she is not the only special lady in his life. He has someone else on whom he will depend on, love and spend time with. Her mother’s heart will also be full of apprehensions about whether the life partner her son has chosen will be really worth her precious son (every mother thinks her son is the most precious). She will pray that things will work out for the both of them and also that the new person in her son’s life allows her (the mother) to still be a part of his (the son’s) life.
One of the occasions in the wedding that a mother gets to have a special moment with her son is during the mother son dance. It is important that you should have a song that fits the occasion. When we talk about a song that fits the occasion we mean something that suits the special bond that a mother and son share. But the choice of song has to go beyond just that. It has to consider the personalities and characteristics of both mother and son so that the song reflects this.
If you feel that the moment is too fraught with emotions then you can lighten it by choosing a song in the lighter vein.
