The hottest 100 wedding songs for 2019

Triple J might have just released the Triple J Hottest 100 songs of 2018, but what about when it comes to your wedding? We’ve crunched the numbers to find out what songs are the most popular for weddings in Australia!

Keep an eye out for the most popular wedding artist throughout the list, Ed Sheeran. You’ll hear his songs played at 12% of all weddings this year!

So without further ado here are the hottest 100 wedding songs for 2019.

100: Baby I’m Yours – Arctic Monkeys

This very Beatles-esque tune comes in at number 100, slipping into our countdown for 91 to 100. While you’ll likely know a lot of these songs and they are sweet, there are no standout wedding hits in this group. But they remain popular choices for weddings nevertheless!

99: One Day Like This – Elbow

98: A Whole New World – Aladdin

97: Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

96: Video Games – Lana Del Rey

95: Wonderwall – Oasis

94: Yellow – Coldplay

93: Truly Madly Deeply – Savage Garden

92: I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers

91: You Are So Beautiful – Joe Cocker

90: True Love – P!nk ft Lily Allen

We can definitely relate to Pink in this song! There’s a bit more of a modern vibe from 81 to 90, with AC/DC flying the flag for the 20th century in this section.

89: This I Promise You – Ronan Keating

88: Yours – Russell Dickerson

87: You Shook Me All Night Long – AC/DC

82: Like I’m Gonna Love You – Meghan Trainor

81: Fire and the Flood – Vance Joy

80: Lovely Day – Bill Withers

This tune gives us some really sweet vibes and we love that couples are using it in their wedding. If 81 to 90 was all about the modern tunes, 71 to 80 is all about the oldies. One tune we’d expect to be a little higher in the list is Your Song by Elton John.

79: Firestone – Kygo ft Conrad Sewell

78: (I’ve Had) The Time of my Life – Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes

72: Hanging By A Moment – Lifehouse

71: Hero – Enrique Iglesias

70: Close Your Eyes – Michael Bublé

This next section is a bit of a mix of wedding songs, but we love the character they give. Personalisation is important at a wedding so it’s nice to see a few out-of-the-box ideas on this list.

Nat King Cole’s L-O-V-E is a staple of wedding movie romances and is a great way to count down this section.
