Every wedding reception needs a cookie table, right? These beauties come from Panera Bread, which is offering a Valentine's proposal sweepstakes featuring free food for the winner's reception.

Maybe you met for coffee on a first date, or it's a favorite weekend lunch spot.

Maybe your sweetheart has a fondness for soup in a bread bowl, or a weakness for chocolate chip breakfast bagels.

And maybe, this Valentine's Day, you are ready to pop the question.

Do it at a Panera Bread and your wedding reception menu may come from Panera — free.

The rules are simple, according to the company's website.

All one has to do is:

• Get engaged at a Panera;

• Share a photo using #PaneraProposalSweeps.

No purchase is necessary, but the clock is ticking. It starts at 9 a.m. Feb. 14 and runs out at 11:59 p.m.

So if you are 18 or older, a legal U.S. resident and have an active social media account, check out the rules and you could be one of five winners who can cross off "pay for reception" from your wedding planning list.

Discount bus line Megabus ran a similar proposal sweepstakes , but, alas, deadline to enter was Jan. 30.

One lucky person may find him or herself bused into a romantic future on Wednesday.

And if you missed the deadline, Megabus' Twitter account helpfully notes that it's not too late to make special travel plans for you and your beloved.

Proposal optional.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
