Stuck on what to choose to dance with your mother to? Have you thought to ask her what she might like? Many songs are good suggestions on the premise that your mother is sending you a message during this special dance which is sometimes more important to her than it is to you. Think carefully before cutting this event from your reception. Check out this link to see 100 great choices (you can click on each song to hear it and also read the lyrics).
Can't decide on just one song? Choose a few and I'll make a special mix for you.
$49 for a special mix similar to the ones below
Here's one that starts out slow and rather predictable, but by the end is anything but, used in the summer of 2017 for Lisa and her son: Mother Son Mix 2
Here's another one made for Dana for her wedding in early 2015 where she and her husband choreographed a riotous routine where she and her dad and her new husband and his mom all danced together!: Mother Son Father Daughter combo
Here's another example for a father daughter dance: this one was made for Corey and her dad to dance to at her wedding in spring of 2014: Father Daughter Dance Mix 1.
Another example (for a father daughter) if it's something more wild you're after. I put this one together for Allison and her dad for her wedding in summer of 2013: Father Daughter Dance Mix 2.
Here's one for a couple's first dance on their wedding using the songs of their choice--it starts out slow and along with some of the "usual suspects" this one includes some Lebanese music! Wedding First Dance Mix 1
What would you tell your mom in the perfect thank you note? How about telling her in person at the start of the dance you'll share with her? Worried you'll blow it under the pressure? That's impossible...here's why... you'll write and record the message in your own voice ahead of time and I'll put together a special mix to the song of your choice.
$99 for a special voiceover mix
Check this one I made for Krysten to dance with her dad to at her wedding in the summer of 2014.
