Pittsburgh Wedding DJ | DJ Rockin Steve - 85 Joint Wedding Father Daughter / Mother Son Dance Songs
  • 85 Joint Wedding Father Daughter / Mother Son Dance Songs

    A combined father daughter and mother son wedding dance has a few distinct advantages. Joining the two will be saving valuable time that can be used later in the evening for dancing with your guests. You also reduce the stress of being the only couple on the dance floor while the wedding photographer, videographer and all of your guests watch you for the next 5 minutes.

    There are many songs out there for the wedding parent dances but many are not suitable for a joint father daughter and mother son dance. My Girl by the Temptations is a great father daughter dance and Oh Mother by Joe Wodarek is an amazing mother son dance but obviously they are gender based.

    We have compiled over 85 songs that are possibilities for your formal wedding dance. Some are slow, some more upbeat and some are just not appropriate for your situation. Only you can decide which ones will suit you best.

    I advise you not to read too much into the lyrics or you will be faced with absolutely no songs left. Your guests won't put too much thought into what they are hearing, merely enjoying those precious moments watching the 4 of you dancing.

    If you would like to mix it up a bit then after a minute or so you can have the other parents join in (switch partners) or have your wedding DJ announce all of your guests join you on the dance floor. Your Disc Jockey can even shorten the song. Most songs will have the second chorus around two and a quarter minutes where the song can be faded out.

    Don't rule out something very upbeat and poppy. We had a groom once that used Todd Rundgren's Bang The Drum for the mother and son wedding dance. It was played every Friday on the radio while his mom was driving him to high school. That song brought back many great memories for him. It was a surprise to his mom and the wedding guests really got into it.

    What I am saying is don't be afraid of being a little different. These are the weddings guests will remember the most.
