Then They Do by Trace Adkins is a good song….if you like country.  There are other more traditional songs like wind beneath my wings, or Have I told you lately….

We may be doing the same thing and a song that we’ve been tossing around is "You’ll be in my Heart" by Phil Collins from Tarzan. It’s kind of parent/child appropriate and super cute 🙂

We’re doing the same thing.  I think we are using Forever Young by Rod Stewart.  There is a slower version on one of his CDs.  Can’t remember which one but if you have itunes you should be able to find it.

I think we will be doing an instrumental. My dad and I used to dance to Music Box Dancer which is a piano song so it’s okay for groom/mom too.

We’re doing the same thing also and using "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack (also country).

We used "Isn’t She Lovely".  We figure the "She" could be me and His mom, so it would work 🙂

We used "In My Life" by the Beatles.

My father is in a wheelchair and couldn’t dance with me and felt too embarassed to try even in the chair. So we combined the Mother/Son dance with a Bride/Brother dance.  My brother cried when I asked him to stand in for my father and it was great to have that moment with my sibling. And the words are very fitting for all situations:

There are places I’ll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life, I’ll love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life, I’ll love you more
