After the happy couple have enjoyed their first spin around the dance floor, it’s time for a mother and son dance. This is one of the best ways to give your mum some special recognition for all the years she’s looked after you.
The mother of the groom is often overlooked in a traditional wedding. By dedicating a song and dance to her, you’ll make her feel appreciated while ensuring there isn’t a dry eye in the venue.
If you’re not sure who her preferred artist is, ask her a few months in advance and slip in one of her favourite songs. Alternatively, we’ve put together 60 of the best songs for telling your mum just how much you love her.
It’s up to you whether you go for something lighthearted and silly, or something truly meaningful and emotional. We have every song saved in a useful Spotify playlist for you to enjoy too!
