Has he asked her? Our song for the mother son dance came from his mom. It was a song that reminded her of him growing up.

OMG I am dealing with this too! It cant be too sappy because she will bawl her eyes out and some of the ones suggested just dont fit. Right now, i think we’re leaning towards “What a wonderful world” but here are some I have found that you might find helpful!!

My husband danced to “If We Hold on Together” by Diana Ross. Why did they pick it? It’s the song at the end of Land Before Time. Oh, the big nerd he is. I thought it was a bit of an awkward choice at first, but it was actually pretty nice.

FI asked his mom and she chose Rascall Flatts – My Wish. I think it’s nice and has no weird innuendos. The only issue is that it is slightly long at a little over 4 minutes.

@tksjewelry:  +1  DH didn’t feel attached to anything so we asked his mom she said John Lennon’s “beautiful boy” always made her think of him, so that’s what we went with 🙂  It really was a perfect choice.

@foreverlovex:  I was stumped for ones to dance with my dad (I didn’t want anything too traditional or sappy.)

My DJ suggested “Kind and Generous” by Natalie Merchant.  It was PERFECT.

“Kind & Generous”

You’ve been so kind and generous
I don’t know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I’m in debt to you
For your selflessness, my admiration
And for everything you’ve done

You know I’m bound…
I’m bound to thank you for it

You’ve been so kind and generous
I don’t know how you keep on giving
For your kindness I’m in debt to you
And I never could have come this far without you
So for everything you’ve done

You know I’m bound…
I’m bound to thank you for it

I want to thank you
For so many gifts
You gave with love and tenderness
I want to thank you

I want to thank you
For your generosity
The love and the honesty
That you gave me

I want to thank you
Show my gratitude
My love and my respect for you
I want to thank you

I want to…

Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you

My friend chose “Perfect Fan” by the Backstreet Boys as his mother-son dance. It was beautiful.
