Mother Daughter Songs For Weddings, Best 43Matthew Campbell

mother daughter songsMother 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.

      I know I’m late on this but for any other times you are thinking about your daughter…For Always by Josh Groban. It always helps me when I am feeling the pain of missing loved ones who have passed. I am so truly sorry for your loss…

    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.

    My mother and I have a very special song and whenever we miss each other this is what we listen to. My mother being a major survivor of stomach, throat and breast cancer, she is truly my hero. Please listen to 26 cents by the Wilkinson’s. Its beautiful. Also like my mother does by Loren Alaina.
