- Wedding: May 2010
Our wedding is just a few days away, and we’ve selected all our “special” songs except for the song my FI will dance to with his stepmother. He’s dancing with his mom to the beautiful medley of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. (Yes, I had to google that to get the right spelling!)
He has a good relationship with his stepmom – she started dating his dad while my FI was in high school and married him while he was in college, so she has been a part of his life for 15+ years. Because the song he’s dancing with his mom to definitely doesn’t have sentimental lyrics, we want to avoid anything sentimental for the stepmom dance. I’ve read through every single list of mother/son songs out there (on WB and elsewhere), and none of them seem to fit the bill!! We just need something nice and pleasant with really nice, neutral lyrics. I don’t care if it’s a typical wedding song – we’re not trying to earn marks for originality here, just find a nice song for them to dance to!
Before I just throw this to the DJ and ask him to pick something for us, any advice from you wonderful ladies??
