Honestly, if she is that awful and doesn’t support your marriage, I really don’t think she deserves to dance with her son at your wedding. I would just not have a mother-son dance, personally.

I am so sorry you’re dealing with this!

 I agree with the commenter above me, I would just nix the parent dances altogether so that it doesn’t look like you’re singling her out. If they are having screaming matches I can’t see them wanting to share a loving dance in front of all your guests anyway!

I would not have a dance with her and your Fiance.  It’s not uncommon to skip that dance at a wedding.  And given your situation, she probably wouldn’t want a moment like that at your wedding anyways.  I wouldn’t even think about including a dance for her.

I’d either leave out the FI/mother dance (commonly not done) or have them dance along side you and your dad and make it a parents’ dance (the focus will be on you and the song meaning won’t be singular to them).  The way you look tonight is a pretty neutral song.

If you do need to have a song, I’d suggest What a Wonderful World, it’s only a little longer than 2 mins.
