So if this sounds like a viable alternative to going broke over a dream-wedding, applicants have until February 21 to enter the competition, and can do so by following instructions on the company’s Facebook page or through an online forum. Megabus will gladly pay for flowers, music and anyone qualified to preside over the festivities -- like a priest, rabbi or your mother's cousins podiatrist, if that's your speed.
