Wet Wet Wet's Love Is All Around was No1 in the UK singles chart for 15 consecutive weeks, but my main memory of that year is the heinous fashion crime committed many times over at a family wedding I attended as a bridesmaid that July.
So scarring was this crime of fashion that I had clearly deleted it from my memory until last Friday evening. As I attended a family birthday party it all came flooding back to me when my cousin, the bride, suggested watching the 18-year-old wedding video for a laugh.
Now I don't know about you but 1994 really doesn't seem that long ago and therefore I would have thought that fashion hadn't changed all that much since then.
I mean, when you watch footage or look through old pictures from the 60s, 70s or even the 80s it feels somewhat dated and you know you are witnessing a completely different era. But as I said somehow the 90s still feels very recent.
Well let me tell you ladies and gents after viewing that video with my hands over my eyes and screams of terror coming from all corners of the living room, I can confirm that not only was this a completely different era in fashion but it also looked like a totally different world.
The hairstyles were hilarious - and that was just the men, the clothes were mainly beige and green with lots of pleats and big buttons.
I was a 14-year-old bridesmaid with zero bust – hard to imagine now I know – and I looked about 20 years older than I am now at 32.
Fashion aside though, seeing the video reminded me of just how far we have come with technology too.
The video cameras looked like they weighed a ton. One guest had a mobile phone straight from the famous Dom Joly sketch of a man holding a gigantic handset and the video tape was huge and heavy.
I hadn't seen one in years.
However, it immediately brought back memories of my dad coming home from work to five little girls crying because The Little Mermaid tape had got stuck in the VCR or because Kerry, my youngest sister, had stuck three chocolate digestive biscuits in the machine again and he had to completely take it apart and fix it or our little lives would have been over.
It also made me wonder what we will all think of today's world 18 years from now.
It seems impossible to believe that what we wear today will ever go out of fashion and how much more we can advance in the world of technology.
I mean, will the iPhone become as retro as a Walkman is today?
Having been a bridesmaid at my own sister's wedding just a few months ago, will we all be sitting around a TV (if that is indeed what we are still watching things on) years from now with our own children laughing and dying of embarrassment at what we looked liked then?
Only time will tell - but one thing's for sure, there is no way my cousin will ever be allowed to convert that VHS to DVD.
That little gem can just remain true to its era and stay tucked away in the fake leather bound green book cover that was all the rage for VHS tapes then in that big box of memories up in the loft.
