Mother Daughter Songs For Weddings, Best 38Matt Campbell

mother daughter songs

Mother Daughter songs are special songs between a bride, aka daughter, and her mother.  We recommend to first select a song that has special meaning between both the mother and daughter.  If a special song is not known between a bride and her mother, we suggest our top 38 mother daughter songs below. 

When the bride’s father has passed away before the wedding reception, a special song dedication to her mother or a special dance with a bride with her mother may replace the father daughter dance.  It’s up to the bride how much attention she wishes to have with the mother daughter songs.

    Should have read the lyrics better… John Mayer’s “Daughters” is about women with daddy issues….

    A great song for a mom to dance with her daughter or even son at the wedding is,” Sunrise Sunset” from the musical Fiddler on the Roof. (Is this the little girl I carried, Is this the little boy at play, I don’t remember getting older when did they.
