It was decided early on that we would not be having the traditional father/daughter or mother/son dances as part of our reception. My father isn't in my life and a dance wasn't anything that my fiance or future mother in law were all that into anyway. However, my mother has mentioned to me that she would like to have a mother/dance. My only brother eloped and I'm her only daughter. So this is her only chance to dance at one of her children's weddings.
I've been looking at lists of songs for parent/children dances and most of them are ballads suitable for slow dancing. I don't really feel that's our dynamic. My mother pretty much raised us kids single-handedly and she is the one who taught me how powerful, strong, and independent women can be. So I'm wanting to do something upbeat and fun that celebrates the strength of women in our family. Any suggestions?
