She may be tall, short, thin or fat, may speak a lot or be a person of few words, rigid or more relaxed, slightly serious or funny. Each mother is different and special in her own way, but they have something in common with the others: the unconditional love they have for their child(ren).

When you see them getting ready to go up to the altar, they will surely be thinking about their wedding dress, about that tie that matches everything, the gifts they want to give, and even if you have been feeding well, then how about also thinking about ways to honor that person who has such a fundamental space in their lives?

When it comes to choosing the songs, it is necessary to evaluate the ensemble. There is no point in using a song with a beautiful rhythm if the lyrics have nothing to do with the situation unless the version chosen is only instrumental. Before choosing, don’t forget to check the lyrics to understand what they say.

It’s always a good idea to also ask your DJ for a recommendation if you are stuck.  Who better to recommend a song for your particular event then the DJ!
