I can think of two duets that aren’t country.  "Come What May" from the movie Moulin Rouge and "All I Ask of You" from the Phantom of the Opera.

A little uncoventional, but I think it’s a beautiful song. Bryan Adams and Sarah Mclachlan sing "Don’t Let Go". To me it’s the epitome of the first look between a bride and a groom. Still, not everyone can sing like Sarah.

Even though it’s country, "From this Moment" might not be bad choice since it doesn’t have a real twangy sound:  Or even "God Bless the Broken Road" (I actually heard this performed by a christian group first and it didn’t sound very country).

I also like "When God Made You" if you’re having a religious ceremony.

If you search on iTunes for "Wedding Tracks" you can listen to samples of a bunch of songs and, if you want to buy the demonstrations or the accompaniment tracks, you can get them for only 99 cents each.

Another thing to remember is that since you’re having the song performed (I assume you also have musicians?) you can have it done in any style you like.  I always love to hear a nice cover that re-interprets an old song in a different style.  It makes you think about it in a whole new way.  I actually went to a big band concert the other weekend where they did a Willie Nelson song in a bluesy-Frank Sinatra sort of style – and you would never have known it started out as a country song!
