"Chapel Of Love" by The Dixie Cups.

OK, back to the 60's: This New Orleans-based girl trio started out as Little Miss and The Muffets only to be soon renamed The Meltones. Their name was once again changed in '64 shortly before recording their first and biggest hit. A Barry/Green/Spector composition previously recorded by The Ronettes and The Blossoms, it topped the charts for 3 weeks, sold over one million copies and was awarded a Gold Disc. The first recording ever under Leiber and Stoller's brand-new Red Bird label. Happiness and anticipation on a girl's wedding day. #279 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. Covered by Bette Midler, The Beach Boys and Sir Elton John. Featured on the "Father Of The Bride" soundtrack. Trio? Song? (Para credito extra: Como se llamaba la version de Lucecita del '65?)

Yesterday's answer: "Islands In The Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. I actually like the Bee Gees' version better. (Man, Kenny Rogers is looking BAD these days - too much "work"!)
