When putting their Central PA wedding reception playlist together, the most frequently asked question from our Harrisburg, Lancaster, York area brides and grooms concerns the Mother – Son Dance. Some find it challenging to plan this wedding reception dance.
Grooms recognize the special bond they share with their mom. Whether it is their biological mom, stepmom, grandmother, or mother-like figure; most realize how special this relationship is and want to be honor that relationship on their wedding day. A heartfelt mother-son dance song at your wedding reception is a great way to express that.
So, if as you envision yourself on the dance floor of Linwood Estate, Lily Manor, Lauxmont Farms; or any of the amazing venues we are fortunate to have in our area, and need some help finding that special mother-son wedding song that expresses how you feel. Here are a few of our favorites and the messages they contain.
"Forever Young" by Rod Stewart
I have always been a Bob Dylan fan, but I admit that his song writing ability far exceeds his vocal ability. This is a fantastic cover by Rod Stewart who has done a lot of covers of Big Band artists as well. The message of this song is a wish for a fantastic life that gives you all the things that you want spiritually while your soul stays “Forever Young”. Every mom can relate to this message.
As for the Rod Stewart “Big Band” covers I mentioned? They are great options for both Cocktail and Dinner hour!
"Days Like This" by Van Morrison
Staying in the rock genre this Van Morrison song is a no-brainer for any classic rock fan. “Well My Mama Told Me There’ll Be Days Like This” is the constant refrain about how his mother told him that he would experience days where he wouldn’t worry, and that day would be absolutely perfect!
Can you think of a more perfect day to play this song than your wedding day?
“You’ll Be In My Heart” by Phil Collins
What do you get when you combine a fantastic vocalist, composer, and song writer? Add them to a Disney Movie soundtrack? You get one of the more popular mother-son wedding dance songs!
This song expresses that mom is not only here to love and protect you physically, but spiritually as you grow and move ahead with your own life. No matter where you are “You’ll be in my heart…always!”
Too often popular can mean overhyped and not worthy. This song is the opposite of that! This message about a mother's unconditional love is universal and it just may be us who is not worthy of this fantastic tune.
"A Song for Mama" by Boyz II Men
This heartwarming Boyz II Men tune from the '90s expresses how mom not only made him the man that he is today but gave him the love and security that he needed for that to happen.
“And no one else can be what you have been to me
You always will be the girl in my life for all times”
“My Wish” by Rascal Flatts
Is there anyone who doesn’t know this song? This song expresses every mother’s wish for their child.
“May your dreams stay big
Your worries be small
You never have to carry
More than you can haul”
I think we all want that for everyone that we love and care about. Who cares about you like you mother?
"You Are the Sunshine of My Life" by Stevie Wonder
Looking for something sentimental but more upbeat? This Stevie Wonder classic may be just what you are looking for! Not only does this song have completely different feel with Stevie on the keyboard and the horn section, it clocks in at less than three minutes which is perfect in terms of time.
