Couple auctions off spot as bridesmaid in wedding.
Kelly Gray isn't losing a bridesmaid -- but she's gaining a sponsor for her wedding. The Virginia hairdresser offered eBay bidders a chance to buy a spot in her wedding party as a bridesmaid.
The winning bid was from Dr Pepper Snapple, which is contributing $10,000 to the wedding April 19, 2009, and will supply the drinks. Gray may even get a bridesmaid out of the deal, too. She said the company plans to launch a Web site to find her a bridesmaid or provide a surprise guest. Gray and fiance Karl Gau came up with the auction idea because they're worried about paying for the wedding.
