Some of the lists were pertinent to honeymoon and wedding planning, so The Knot breaks it down for you below.

What would Google’s list be without weddings? In February, Miranda Lambert’s wedding to Brendan McLoughlin came as a shock to the masses. The unexpected celebrity wedding sparked a flurry of Google inquiries, making the country superstar’s low-key nuptials the top-searched wedding of 2019. Other key nuptials of the year included Jennifer Lawrence’s wedding in Rhode Island, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s nuptials, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s short-lived celebration, and Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s nuptials—emphasis on plural.
