It's that simple and the prize package is pretty impressive. In addition to things like the cake, a disc jockey, lodging, video and limousines, the whole event will take place at the historic Pen Ryn Mansion. Want more? Well, how about having your entire wedding immortalized in Philadelphia Wedding

It's not surprise that response to the contest as been strong, but Michelle Greco Falcone, Visit Bucks County’s Communications Manager, said she's hoping for some post-holiday entries.

"We were hoping for 100 entries and we're already there," she said. "But we're hoping for a spike after Christmas."

THe deadline is Dec. 31 and the winner will be announced in Febraury at the Bucks County Bridal Show. Neither the bride nor the groom need to be from Bucks County to win.
