Jenna Hager's Wedding Advice to Ellen DeGeneres

by at . Comments

Ellen DeGeneres and John McCain may have gotten into a smackdown over her plans to marry partner Portia DeRossi, but there's another Republican who is far less abrasive - and even willing to help with the nuptials:

Jenna Hager (a.k.a. Jenna Bush)!

The first daughter, who got married May 10 at the Bush family compound in Crawford, Texas, appears with her mother, Laura Bush, on next Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Looks like they're having fun ...

Mrs. Henry Hager and the future Mrs. Portia de Rossi share a laugh.

Among the topics of discussion, of course, will be Jenna's wedding to Henry Hager, with the bride even showing off some new reception photos.

Said Ellen DeGeneres: "So, the ranch was a great place to get married - it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures of you, really."

"Yeah," concurred Jenna Hager, "it was really nice." Ellen responded: "So, can we borrow it for our wedding, can we get the ranch?"

"Sure," replies an obliging Hager.

"Okay, great," says DeGeneres.

And that was that.

In terms of advice, Jenna Bush said that when it comes to actually getting married, "It's a good idea to do it somewhere private because, to us, it was a really special day to be with family."

Keeping the guest list limited to those in your inner circle is another wise move, Mrs. Henry Hager said, because, "I definitely didn't want to introduce myself to somebody at my own wedding."

Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

I’m thrilled that the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage. I can’t wait to get married. We all deserve the same rights, and I believe that someday we’ll look back on this and not allowing gays to marry will seem as absurd as not allowing women to vote.

You showed us something in that film that I have not seen for a very, very long time.
