VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – You too can be in Kelly Gray’s wedding. Who’s that? Just a 23-year-old hairdresser auctioning off an opportunity to be one of her bridesmaids.
Gray and fiance Karl Gau make a combined annual salary of about $32,000. Gray says they’re also caring for a 1-year-old daughter and can’t really save for their wedding.
Instead they’re looking to cut corners, using an iPod instead of a DJ for music and baking their own cake.
And then there’s the auction.
The auction was up to $202.50 earlier this week. It ends at 4:27 p.m. Wednesday.
Gray hopes to cover the winner’s dress and shoes, and make a profit.
She says whoever wins will be in the wedding, no matter what.
