John McCain may disapprove of Ellen DeGeneres and partner Portia DeRossi's intentions to marry, but there's another Republican who is only too happy to help with the upcoming nuptials: Jenna Hager.

The first daughter, who herself got hitched May 10 at the Bush family spread in Crawford, Texas, appears with her mother, Laura Bush, on next Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Among Jenna's topics with the host (the show was taped Thursday) is the wedding at the ranch, with the bride even showing off snapshots from the reception.

Observes DeGeneres: "So, the ranch was a great place to get married – it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures or bother you, really."

"Yeah," concurs Hager, "that was really nice" – which prompts DeGeneres to ask, "So, can we borrow it for our wedding, can we get the ranch?"

"Sure," replies an obliging Hager.

"Okay, great," says DeGeneres.

In terms of advice, Hager 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 immediate circle is another wise move, Hager said, because, "I definitely didn't want to introduce myself to somebody at my own wedding."
