When it comes to selecting the perfect mother-son wedding dance song, it can be challenging. That special dance between a mother and son is not only a once in a lifetime moment, but is a memorable one. To help with your selection, here’s a list of favorite mother-son songs from our staff at Eclipse Events.

The Way You Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra

If you are looking for a classic, yet more upbeat song this is definitely one of the most popular songs.

“I love the message. The song is also fun to dance to because it’s a little more upbeat than most of the mother-son songs.” – Mike Spinnato, Owner & President.

Have I Told You Lately – Rod Stewart

You may want to grab those tissues for this classic song. This song will for sure give you chills on the dance floor.

“This is a song my mother used to sing to me as a kid to always remind me how much she loved me. We were lucky to have a song because I know most grooms have a tough time choosing a song with their mom. The lyrics meant a lot to us and still do today.” – Anthony Battista, Director of Operations. 


The Man You Have Become – No Limitz

This selection highlights all aspects of growing up and how proud a mom can be of her son.

“My husband danced with his mom to this song. She chose it because it reminded her of relationship with her son and how proud she is of who is he today, husband he came and father he will become.” – Jenna Beard, Leads Manager.


Humble And Kind – Tim McGraw

If you like country music, you can definitely relate to this selection on many aspects of growing up with your mom.

“I personally like this one because I can really relate to the way that I was brought up by my single mother.” – Chris Ponce, Corporate Production Manager.


Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Israel Kamakaawiwo’Ole

This song everyone can relate to, but what makes this song extra-special while dancing with your mom is if you grew up watching the movie with her together.

“I’m not married yet, but I know I would use ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ as my mother-son dance. It was my mom’s favorite movie growing up and we watched it together countless times. Her other favorite movie was Jaws, and I feel that is a little less fitting.” – Justin Yoast, Creative Director
