    Mother/Son Wedding Dance Songs

    My son is getting married August 25 and I need to pick a song to dance to. Any and all suggestions welcome. I know I'll be crying my eyes out.

    My son and I danced to "What a Wonderful World" sung by Louis Armstrong. 13 years later every time I hear it I get a little misty eyed.

    A mothers song by: T Carter
    A mothers song is dedicated to the love and/devotion that all mothers have for their son. If you dance to this i bet there wont be a dry eye in the room. you can hear it on youtube.I dont know how to post a link sorry.But hope you like the song.

    This is the song that my son and I danced to at his wedding. It is very sweet. My brother and his wife who have THREE sons were literally in tears!! They came up to me after asking where did I find the song.

    "I Hope You Dance", by LeeAnn Womack (sp?). My aunt danced to that with my cousin at his wedding and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. I personally am not a fan of the song, but I did tear up when they danced to it. I love Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World". That would be a great song, too.

    Ps150, That is a beautiful song, just don't get to hear it much. I love What a Wonderful World also. Either one would be good.

    I think my problem with the song, is that it was on the radio A LOT here when it first came out, so now when I hear it, it's still too much of an overkill. I prefer the more classic music, though.

    How about a real oldie: Que Sera, Sera or That's Amore? There wasn't any dancing at DS/DDL's wedding but if there had been a mother-son special, I'd have wanted something joyful and upbeat.....a polka, the Twist, Do You Love Me? or Walk Like a Man.

    can't remember the name but there is a song from Fiddler on the Roof, "Is this the little boy I carried?" is one of the lines.

    I also chose "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong. That song always makes me smile, and I was so very happy for him. A year later he is still ridiculously happy and in love.

    I'm not sure I'd want to spend the entire dance crying! How about "I hope you dance" or Stevie Wonder's You are the sunshine of my life or, "I Wish You Love by Natalie Crow,---or my favorite (Have I Told you Lately That I love you.!
