A 23-year-old hairdresser from Virginia, Kelly Gray, set up an eBay auction, last week, for the bridesmaid spot in her wedding.
She hoped to pay for some of the $7,000 wedding costs. Her expectations were more than exceeded when the winning bid came to $5,700.
But more good news was on the way. The winning bid was from the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group who also offered to pay for all the booze and upped their offer to $10,000.
They intend to launch an online contest or get a celebrity to appear as the bridesmaid.
