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
