Wilfred Theodore (Ted) Weems (originally Wemyes) (26 September 1901 - 6 May 1963) was a United States bandleader and musician.

Born in Pitcairn, Pennsylvania, Weems learned to play the violin and trombone. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he and his brother Art organized a small dance band. Going professional in 1923, Weems toured for the MCA Corporation, recording for Victor Records. Somebody Stole My Gal became the band's first #1 hit in early 1924.

Weems was a Victor band from 1923 through 1933, although the final 3 sessions were released on Victor's recently started-up Bluebird label. He then signed with Columbia for 2 sessions in 1934 and subsequently signed with Decca from 1936.
