PARENT DANCES:

Trying to come up with the perfect wedding song to dance to with Dad or Mom? Start by deciding if you want a beautiful slow ballad or also want a song with meaningful lyrics. (Warning: If you choose a tear-jerker, plan the dance for later on in the reception, when the party is beginning to wind down and most of the pictures have already been taken!)

Below is a list of popular mother and son wedding songs as well as father and daughter wedding songs. We recommend reading through the whole list for ideas — some songs work for a father-daughter or mother-son wedding dance. Or, you may want to choose one song and have both dances at the same time.
