Mother Son Wedding Songs
Selecting the appropriate mother son wedding songs depends upon the relationship they share. If their relationship is open and light hearted then may be more peppy tunes like "Celebration" by the Kool and the Gang could be used. Otherwise, there are a number of songs which reveal the bond between a mother and her son.
Some of the conventional but beautiful mother son dance songs include "Beautiful boy" by John Lennon, "A song for Mamma" by Boyz II Men, "Ever Mother's Dream" by Teresa James, "Blessed" by Elton John, "Dear Mama" by Anne Murray, "A Mother's Song" by T. Carter, "I'll always be your Mother" by Lynn Leonti and Jim McShane, "First lady in my life" by Paul Todd, "Because you love me" by Celine Dion and many other songs.
Mother son wedding songs give both the mother and the son a chance to express their love for each other. It is an opportunity for the mother to wish her son all the best for his future as well as give him some advice if required. It also gives the son an opportunity to thank his mother for all that good she has done for him.
A mother son dance is also a good way to involve the mother of groom in the wedding. This is because, traditionally, the bride's mother is more involved in the wedding preparations than the groom's mother. The point is that none of the immediate family members and parents should feel left out or be treated as "guests" for their children's wedding. This especially is bound to happen with the groom's mother.
Mothers are known to be more possessive about their sons. However, a good mother would always take a back step when her son gets married. All the groom's mother requires is acceptance of the extended families and the new responsibilities of the son after his marriage.
The groom's mother in fact should be the first person to contact the bride's family introduce her family and preferably invite them for a meal. This is a good way to start communicating with the bride's family and build a healthy relationship with them. She should also be involved in arranging the rehearsal dinner before the wedding. She and her husband should be more than willing to contribute financially in their son's wedding if required.
A good idea is to gift the son and the future daughter in law a honeymoon package. This is nice gesture to support their relationship and wish them a good married life. Also this lets you involve yourself more as the groom's mother. At times, brides tend to get carried away and get it all done their way as they think the wedding day is only meant for them to enjoy and make them their dreams come true. Of course, it is their day, but the brides should remember not to step on anybody else's toes to make their wishes come true.
