We are the first ones to admit that emotional groom moments will make us cry like nobody is watching, and the mother-son dance is no exception. That dance is more than just a tradition; it’s a way for the groom to thank the first love of his life for raising him to find the newest love of his life. So, we’ve curated a mother-son dance playlist that is full of sentimental classics and tear-jerking new hits to help make that moment one nobody will forget.

  3. very cool songs!
    By the way, there are a lot of cool tracks for weddings and wedding videos on https://taraweddings.ca/wedding-videography/

  4. I found this one! The groom and mother will just love it. It takes us on a mother and son journey from birth to that very moment on the dance floor of his wedding day. A special bond between mother and son. Its country and fits perfectly for the occasion.
