    Anyone have any suggestions for good mother/son dance songs for the wedding reception? We are having a really tough time finding something nice but not too sappy...

          My little bro and my mom danced to "when momma prayed"
          It fit him perfectly but it is a tear jerker!
          My favorite type of vacation, a relaxing one!

                we are having trouble with this too. Ry older brother and his mom danced to Kenny Rogers and that is him moms FAVORITE singer so we feel like anything at this point is going to be kind of second best anyhow. Tough decision with limited choices for sure in my opinion.

                There was one James Taylor song that Ryan mentioned "youve got a friend" neither one of us love it but seriously its so hard to find anything fitting.

                  We are still working on this too, but FI is thinking of sticking with something classic like Louis Armstrong's "what a wonderful world" so he doesnt end up with somethign cheesy his mom picks out.
