Meet the eBay Bride

Posted by bridalbuds on Apr 22, 2009

When times get tough, get creative! That’s what Kelley Gray of Virginia Beach, VA did and I thought I’d share this interesting story with you.  To help pay for her April 19, 2009 wedding, she posted a bridesmaid spot on eBay.  Her post gained national attention and someone won a place as her bridesmaid for $5,700.  If that wasn’t good enough, Dr. Pepper doubled the donation to $10,000!

Despite the tough economic times, the Virginia Beach community responded with local vendors donating bridesmaids dresses, jewelry, tuxedos, flowers, cake, DJ services, hair and makeup, photography and wedding programs.

They are so cute!  What creative ways are you saving and raising money to finance your wedding?
