Certain songs are perfect at describing the special relationship shared by a mother and her son. These songs take on a special meaning at a wedding reception when the groom takes his mother out on the dance floor. Sit down with your mom before your wedding and ask her which song she'd like to hear while she dances with you.

For many mothers, there is a song that brings back memories of their son as a young boy. This song may have been his favorite song as a child, or it could be a song she sang to him while he slowly drifted off to sleep. This song might simply describe the never-ending love a mother will have for her son.

Mommy, Can I Have This Dance?

"Through the Years" by Kenny Rogers describes the way a person can change someone's life, and is a popular mother/son wedding song. Many mothers' lives were changed forever the moment they gave birth to their son. While dancing with her son to this song, she can express these sentiments one more time before he begins a new life of his own. If you're not a fan of Kenny Rogers, other songs you might want to consider are James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend," "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole, and Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me."

The mother/son dance is a very sentimental part of any wedding reception. Don't forget to include this moment when planning your reception. Check with the DJ well ahead of time to make sure he or she has the song you are planning to share with your mother on the dance floor.
