The mother-son dance is a special moment for every mother and son
Weddings can be a very emotional time, especially for the mother. She remembers her son entering the world as a frightened, fragile baby, and watching and helping him grow into the man he is today, and all those magical moments in between. And now the time has come to give her son (which she may still see as the small baby that cried for her and she ran to comfort) to his bride. Mother son dance songs help you capture that feeling, and produce a memory that will last a lifetime.
