You've got your dream celebrity wedding dress designer on lock so why not have a famous officiant as well? We asked a bunch of brides-to-be to answer the following question: If you could have any celeb officiate your wedding, who would you choose and why? From Ellen DeGeneres to Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Buffett, here are the names that topped their lists.

"Bill Murray because he unknowingly played a role in our relationship. My fiancé and I fell in love over Wes Anderson movies, like Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, plus, the first year we dated, he dressed up as Steve Zissou (Bill's character) from The Life Aquatic. The other main reason is that we are from Chicago, marrying here and so are several of our guests. Bill loves the city as much as we do, fitting in with our overall theme." — Ximena

"Jimmy Buffett! Our first date was at Margaritaville in Las Vegas, then we got engaged at the Margaritaville in Orlando. It just makes sense." — Stella

"I think Ellen DeGeneres would be awesome! Not only is she hilarious and super nice, but I bet she would also give an epic wedding gift." — April

"Mark Walhberg. My husband has a huge man crush on Marky Mark so if we went with anyone else I'm pretty he wouldn't marry me." — Nickie

"Joan Rivers if she was still alive. She could have given me some great fashion advice too!" — Kenzie

"Our mutual love of Indiana Jones is pretty much what brought us together so Harrison Ford would be my celebrity officiant." — Ginny

"Ryan Seacrest. He's a freaking pro at hosting big events so I wouldn't have to worry about him messing up or being awkward at all." — Liz

"I'd probably pick John Legend simply because I feel like he would have some really poetic words to say about marriage and falling in love." — Jordan

"We got engaged during a photo opp with Eliza Dushku so I'd have to choose her." — Missy

"Oprah...she makes dreams come true, after all!" — Micah

"Jimmy Fallon! My fiancé is the spitting image of him, plus he just cracks me up!" — Brittany

"If Robin Williams was still alive, I'd pick him in a heartbeat. I feel like he'd be the perfect combination of sweet and funny." — Ally

"Tom Hanks. He's an American treasure! He knows how to be entirely serious and hysterically funny all at once. He's also had one of the few truly successful Hollywood marriages, so the guy knows a thing or two about love," — Gabby
