Va. Bride Auctioning Bridesmaid Spot

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.
