Four years ago, the DJ music mixologists of Ambient DJs decided to post a few wedding cocktail hour playlists and select accompanying cocktails. Posting these blogs was fun, but we never aspired to scale up the project to any set number of playlists. We just kept posting them as ideas came to mind. Along the way, we covered a wide range of themes and musical genres. The variety and depth of musical knowledge at our company is something to be truly proud of.
Fast forwarding to March 1, 2019, we’re excited to post our 100th wedding cocktail hour playlist! To make the 100th playlist extra special, our DJs/staff were provided an opportunity to select their all-time favorite songs appropriate for a wedding cocktail hour.
For a signature drink, we’ve selected a celebratory bottle of chilled LaMarca Prosecco. This Italian sparkling wine is refreshing, crisp and a great value at just $14 a bottle.
Immediately following the playlist below, take a listen to the entire set on Spotify (unmixed), plus a bonus continuous DJ mix by Linda Leigh entitled “A Fine Day To Say I Do.”
Thank you everbody for reading and listening! If you have any input on how you would like to see the wedding cocktail hour project evolve, please let us know. If you are strategic partner who can help us take this project to the next level, we’d love to hear from you!
