Songs for mom & son - wedding

My son just told me that he and I are going to have to dance at his wedding and need to choose a song. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Recently I said something happy and upbeat and that would indicate you are welcoming your son's new wife to your lives.

My son got married last year.  We danced to Rod Stewart’s Forever Young.  Google and you can read the words and hear the song.

@isaboo- I had the same question not too long ago.  I learned about a song that I had never hear before and ended up choosing it for my son and I to dance to at his wedding last month.  It's called A Song for My Son.  Have a tissue ready.

When my son got married, we danced to Boyz 2 Men, A Song for Mama. I Googled the lyrics and listened to it.  It was perfect. I have tears in my eyes now thinking about it.

DS and I are both musicians so we collaborated on the choice. I coild not have something that would bring me to tears- there would be pictures and video! Our choice: I Just Can't Stop Loving You by Michael Jackson. 

 

Boyz 2 Men Mama's Song might be the choice for DS#2's wedding a few years from now.

How sweet! Pick something that "speaks" to you about your relationship with your DS. Now I'll put in my 2 cents for a tune: when we got married, my DH danced with his mother to Cass Elliott's "Dream a Little Dream of Me".
