Hot 50 Wedding Song Picks

Updated August 30, 2022

Curating playlists is great. Fantastic, even. (Hey we do it.)

But how can a non-DJ keep track of the hot songs for a wedding? There’s just too much produced. There are too many songs on Spotify, TikTok, and YouTube.

And we haven’t even mentioned traditional radio stations, iHeartRadio, or Apple Music!

So, we’ve curated the Hot 50 Picks Chart for you. If you’re looking for wedding-appropriate songs, then we have your back.

Rankings are based upon the most popular songs being downloaded and streamed that are wedding-appropriate.

    These are all great songs! Some of them never occurred to me as wedding songs! A few of my favorite are The Day Before You by Rascall Flatts, No Place That Far by Sara Evans, and My Best Friend by Tim McGraw.
