What is the Mother Son Dance at Weddings ?
The mother son dance is an especially touching tradition and a wonderful way for the groom to honour his mother. The Groom invites his mother for a dance just by themselves on the dance floor. This tradition is normal to see at American Weddings but is fast becoming more popular for Irish weddings.
When does it normally happen during a Wedding ?
Both the mother-son and father-daughter dances usually take place right after the traditional first dance with the Bride & Groom. Another nice option to choose is right after the late night Food/tea break. It’s a great way to start things off after the teas & coffees are finished being served.
You can go through the different options with your Wedding DJ before the big day and choose an option that works best for you. On the day your Wedding DJ will announce that it’s time for the father-daughter and mother-son dances. Traditionally the Father Daughter dance is first then followed by the Mother Son dance.
Who decides on what song to choose for a Mother Son Dance ?
Some grooms and their moms decide on a song together. Some grooms leave the tune entirely up to mom.
