Maybe “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban. It’s kind of done in the sense that I’ve attended wedding where the M/S dance is to this song, but honestly, it gets me every single time. I’m not sentimental or a crier, but I will get teary-eyed at this song. It’s not sugary sweet or incredibly upbeat, but it is dramatic (IMO) and inspirational.

Neither my husband or MIL were too into picking a M/S dance, so I chose “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. It was one of the top picks when I’d ask co-workers, and I don’t find it overly creepy or anything that. But then that depends on if you’re into country music or not!

My husband and MIL danced to “What a Wonderful World.” My MIL picked it. 🙂

We did a combined mother/son and father/daughter dance and we all danced to “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King.

First of all, if your FI was on board for “Sunrise, Sunset” I would tell you to suck it up and let them dance to it.  But since he’s not…

I also vote “What a Wonderful World.”  You could do the “Wonderful World/Somewhere Over the Rainbow” mix by IZ too.

Other than that… were there any movie that your FI and his mother watched when he was younger?  Like if he really liked Pinocchio, what about “When You Wish Upon a Star”?

I don’t know if you’ve read the lyrics to “you are my sunshine”, but that’s technically a depressing song too.  That being said, it’s an upbeat song so it doesn’t matter.  I’m having a bluegrass band at my reception and a lot of bluegrass is upbeat songs about depressing topics =P

My FI and his mom are dancing to Jim Croce’s “I’ll have to say I love you in a song.” I had never heard of it, but its one of his mom’s favorites
