Picking a song for your mom to dance to with you or with your fiancé at the wedding is a really difficult choice. For one you don’t want to pick something so emotional that she cries through the whole thing, although that’s pretty unavoidable, and you also don’t want to be cheesy, which is equally as unavoidable.
The list of classic mom songs is pretty short, and it seems that unless you want to dance to Boys II Men you don’t have a lot of options, but you do. The best advice is to go with a song that is meaningful to you and your mom even if it doesn’t seem like a “mom” song because of course, it doesn’t have to be. But if you find yourself struggling for ideas, take a look at these picks in honor of Mother’s Day.
