What a great idea! Too bad neither FI nor I can sing… and he’s a drummer. Not much you can do with just drums and terrible singing 🙂 hehe.

As for suggestions…

What about L-O-V-E or Unforgettable by Natalie Cole? I think they are both so wonderful and do well as duets (she did them both as a duet with her father originally I believe). They aren’t sappy either 🙂

Best of Luck,

Bella

Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart! It’s so happy and wedding-appropriate. Sweet rather than sappy.

My guy and I are thinking about making a cd, but just for fun since we’re both singers/musicians. You could write your own songs if you’re feeling ambitious. A bottle of wine and a little romance is excellent inspiration…it’s worked for us at least, haha. 🙂

what about Lucky by Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz?

Marvin Gaye has done some good duets: It Takes Two, You’re All I need to Get By (I’d definitely try this one if my FI could carry a tune, or really stay in just one key!!), and I’m sure there are others.

Others that are bordering on sappy/ totally sappy are:
It’s Your Love by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw
All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera
The Prayer (not sure if you do opera :))
Suddenly Seymore from Little Shop of Horrors (try to find the youtube video with Mandy Moore for a concert version)
Will You Marry Me? by Alabama and Jann Arden
