Weddings typically gloss over one very important person—MOM! Unless you consider shopping for a wedding dress and setting up and taking down the wedding décor a way to honor mom, there really is little that traditional wedding etiquette offers for holding her high on your wedding day.
If you want to do something really special for your mama on your wedding day, and you happen to be the groom, then why not play a special song for her? Of course, it doesn’t have to be over-the-top or outright ridiculous, just something that says thank you mom, for everything. To help inspire your creativity, we’ve selected 10 mother son wedding songs that you can play to say thank you.
