An increasingly large amount of brides and grooms that I have been meeting with over the past few months have been ranting and raving about their 90s music. 90s nostaglia has been going strong for quite some time now and I don't believe it's going to be leaving us anytime soon. As a matter of fact, I've taken it upon myself to go back and begin to refresh some of the older posts and added them to Spotify, one of which was 35 Songs From The 90s For Your Wedding Playlist. Feel free to go check that out and relive your youth. Today's post is about love songs from the 90s and in doing the research for this selection of songs, I found one or two songs you may not see on any other 90s playlist at any of the other wedding websites. This playlist is composed of some of the most popular love songs of the 90s. Before you listen, you might want to make sure your fiancee is nearby. Thank you for stopping by my website and blog and let's talk soon after you listen to this playlist.
