Instead of a string quartet, a 100-member marching band. Instead of bridesmaids and groomsmen, a royal court. Instead of one photographer, dozens of TV broadcasters. And instead of just one bouquet, more than one million roses.
For those who want to broadcast their nuptials on national TV (and skip the florist bill), getting married on a "love float" at the Rose Parade is the opportunity a lifetime. But to our cold, reality TV-shriveled hearts, the contest is one hot tub scene away from being "The Bachelorette."
But, you know, that works for a lot of people. So in the name of love, we present the contest rules.
Farmers Insurance is seeking one engaged couple to shower with a gown, tuxedo, wedding rings, a trip to Pasadena and tickets to the 2013 Rose Bowl game. The couple also gets to bring six witnesses along for the ride.
To enter the contest, upload a photo and tell judges why you deserve a Love Float wedding on the Farmers Insurance Facebook app. Farmers is accepting submissions until Oct. 14., and people will be able to vote for one of four couples selected for the final round.
