She has been there through many of life’s milestones. She was the first face you saw when you opened your tiny eyes, encouraged you to take the training wheels off your bike, made you soup when you were sick, and then taught you how to make it yourself. 

Through the whole wedding planning process, she has been there every step of the way from asking for guidance to beaming when you found the dress. One way is finding special mother-daughter dance songs to let both of you take the spotlight on your wedding day.

The bond between a mother and daughter is one of the strongest. Mothers are hard workers, sincere, and, most notably, the ultimate role models. Your wedding day will be just as beautiful and emotional for you as it will be for your mother, who is watching her little girl grow up and get married before her eyes. But finding amazing mother-daughter songs to help tell the story especially can be quite difficult. 

It’s up to the bride and mother how much attention they wish to have with mother-daughter songs. Every couple’s music tastes are different. 

When selecting a song to dedicate to your mom, we recommend selecting a song with a special meaning for both of you. Our curated list of mother-daughter songs should help jog your memory or even find a new symbol of your bond.

These songs shouldn’t only be played on special occasions like weddings or Mother’s Day, but they should be played frequently to let your loved ones know exactly how much we appreciate them. 

If you’re just especially close with your mom, you may want to consider dedicating a song to her at your wedding reception. What’s more, dancing with your mom at your wedding—whether it’s for a first dance or an entirely separate number—is a fun and memorable way to capture your unbreakable bond. 

First, you’ll need to pick a mother-daughter dance song that is special, sentimental, and meaningful for both of you. To help get your creative juice

“I Hope You Dance,” Lee Ann Womack

This Lee Ann Womack song—which has since become an iconic country-pop smash hit—has remained a wedding playlist staple since its 2000 release. The song perfectly conveys a mother’s wishes for her child by encouraging them to take risks, embrace love and live life to the fullest.

“Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion

This song beautifully describes a mom who supports her daughter through good times and bad (and your wedding-planning journey!). If these lyrics ring true to your relationship with Mom, this Celine Dion classic is an ideal choice as a mother-daughter wedding song.

“I Turn To You,” Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera boosted “I Turn To You” to fame following her 2002 rendition of the emotional ballad. Its stunning lyrics, which depict mothers as a loving and rock-solid support system, make it a must-play at your wedding.

“Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac

As a song about the ups and downs of life, and the changes that we all go through as we age, there’s nothing like this hit from Fleetwood Mac to perfectly describe the transformation mother-daughter relationships go through over the years. Stevie Nicks wrote this song to talk about the challenges she was going through in her personal life back in 1974.

“Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder

“Isn’t she lovely?”— a lyric that could perfectly describe both a mother and her daughter. Although Stevie Wonder wrote this to celebrate the birth of his first child, it is a great song that celebrates both mothers and daughters for their inner and outer beauty.

“In My Life,” The Beatles

Music has to power to evoke emotion and offers us a place to reflect on our lives. “In My Life” does this beautifully and simply. The Beatles create this type of musical magic in a seemingly effortless way. The song simultaneously takes you back to your past while making you think about today. It inspires you to think about those you have loved as well as those you love today.

“Mama’s Song” By Carrie Underwood

This wonderful song by Carrie Underwood is something worth listening to. It expresses the mother-daughter love quite accurately in so many words. You will love the emotional lyrics of Mama’s song: “He makes promises he keeps and he’s never gonna leave, so don’t you worry about me, momma!” It’s a must-one for your list of mother-daughter dance songs.

Rockabye’ by Clean Bandit

This is a song about a hardworking mother who ensures that her daughter gets everything that she wants. She doesn’t want her daughter’s life to be hers and takes up all the hardships to make sure that her daughter lives a happy life. The song portrays the selfless love of a mother towards her daughter.

‘I Got You’ by Ciara

The mother wants to tell her daughter that many bad things could happen to her in her life, but her mother will always be there to protect her. In this process, she may have to face many hardships herself, but she will bear it all and stand strong for her child for her daughter.
