What does the mother son dance symbolize?

Dancing with your mom on the wedding day is a special moment that you don’t want to skip.

This special dance is a great way to honor the special bond between a son and his mother.

You and your mom will cherish the photos forever (I speak from experience).

A couple of tips for getting the best photos of the mother-son dance:

  1. Some grooms (and mothers) cringe at the thought of being the center of attention, so they tell the DJ to cut the song after 30-60 seconds. We recommend having your song play for a minimum of 90 seconds. This gives your photographer plenty of time to get some awesome candid photos of the groom and his mom. If candid photos are important to you, we recommend having your song play for 2-3 minutes (that is the ideal range).
  2. We recommend doing the mother-son dance separately from the father-daughter dance. Some couples think that doing them together is a way to save time, but all it does is make it hard on your photographer. Do these dances back-to-back, but keep them separate to increase the number of candid photos from your wedding photographer.

Note: The mother and son dance is definitely one of the photos you should add to your wedding photography shot list (check that article for a ton of amazing photo ideas).
