The 90s Pop Wedding Cocktail Hour

The 97th installment of our wedding cocktail hour series was created on the back of strong recent demand for 90s music by our clientele and party guests.  It seems that the Nineties are sparking the same nostalgia for millennials that the Eighties stokes for Generation X!

Compiled by Ambient DJs’ head honcho Gregg Ambient, the playlist features many of the biggest hit makers of the 90s as well as a few “one hit wonders.”  Track selections gravitate towards fun, light musical fare, perfect to set the tone for an enjoyable wedding reception or other celebration.

For a signature drink, we’ve selected the popular “Cosmopolitan” – a libation that cut its teeth in the Nineties!  To learn how to mix one, see Difford’s recipe by clicking here.


Immediately after the playlist, listen to the playlist on the accompanying Spotify playlist  (unmixed), and enjoy a bonus “80s 90s Something” dance mix which focuses specifically on those songs from the late Eighties and early Nineties.
