we’re thinking of the Ella Fitzgerald’s verison of (I’ll Be Loving You) Always

For a combined father/bride, mother/groom dance.

we did a combined mother/son uncle/bride (my uncle gave me away) dance to In My Life by the Beatles. 

What a Wonderful World is always a hit too.  it’s not too specific but it’s pretty and it’s very short.

good luck!

I am all about trying to find alternative choices for these dances, because my Fiance and I are big music people. 

I think "Upward Over the Mountain" by Iron & Wine is the most beautiful mother/son song ever made – the trouble is, it’s a bit long so it may not make the cut, but that song chokes me up.
"Kind And Generous" by Natalie Merchant is a great option. 
And Sarah MacLaughlan does a great cover of "The Rainbow Connection" – it’s sweet and sentimental without being overly emotional.

what about Landslide by Fleetwood Mac? 

 took my love and I took it downClimbed a mountain and turned aroundAnd I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills’til the landslide brought it downOh, mirror in the sky -What is love?Can the child within my heart rise above?Can I sail through the changin’…ocean tidesCan I handle the seasons of my life?I don’t know…..I don’t knowWell I’ve been afraid of changin’because I’ve built my life around youBut time makes you bolder, even children get olderAnd I’m getting older too….So, take my love…take it downClimb a mountain and turn aroundand if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills…well the landslide will bring it downThe landslide will bring it down

Mr. Snow Pea used The First Lady in my Life. It was actually a very good song.
