What Are the Best Mother-Son Wedding Dance Songs?

Learn the best mother-son dance songs from celebrity wedding planner Barbara Esses in this Howcast video.


My name is Barbara Esses and I do events for a living. I'm Ruthie Hecht; I'm an event planner and I work with and for my mother. We're going to teach you the do's and don'ts for the perfect wedding. For a groom to dance with his mother, they should choose something that's from his birth. Mothers are very nostalgic and they love it. So, if you were born in 1982, choose a song from 1982. It should be a little up-tempo, a little enjoyable, definitely Elton John, Billy Joel. Everyone will know the music and enjoy swaying to it with you. People love dancing to "You Are the Sunshine of My Life, "and "I Hope You Dance." They're both uplifting and just cheesy enough to work.
