Friday List: Celebrity Wedding Officiants

We're all about pie-in-the-sky dreaming here, kids. That's why we drew inspiration for today's Friday List from Howard Stern and soon-to-be-wife Beth Ostrosky. This week, the couple announced that they will be married by Mark Consuelos, as in Mr. Kelly Ripa. While this is probably a relief to Ostrosky's family, who might have feared a wedding officiated by Ron Jeremy or Eric the Midget, the choice of Consuelos is, erhhmm, creative.

To be fair, though, Consuelos is not just some B-list actor who met wife Kelly Ripa on the set of "All My Children." He's a B-list actor who also cameoed in 10 (ten!) episodes of his wife's show "Hope and Faith" and has a degree in marketing from the esteemed University of Southern Florida. So he's obviously way more qualified to perform a wedding ceremony than, say, Tiny Tim or even "The Love Boat's" Capt. Stubing.

Why Consuelos? Stern and his wife and Kelly Ripa and Consuelos (who, it should be noted, eloped when they married in 1996) are reportedly good friends and, according to some reports, Consuelos is Ostrosky's "spiritual advisor." Hmm.

Consuelos not to your liking? Well, tell me who is. Given the choice of any celebrity -- and assuming you'd want to remember your wedding more for the officiant than the actual bonding yourself to someone else for life bit -- who would you want to officiate your (or a friend's) wedding? Set the scene below...
