Dr Pepper is eBay bridesmaid

No primary category set

When other little girls were dreaming of being teachers or singers, . But times are hard and when she and fiancé Karl Gau couldn’t afford their dream day, they turned to eBay for help. Kelly put the opportunity to be a bridesmaid – dress, shoes and being in the photos – up for auction. The winning bidder at $5,700 introduced himself as “Nick from New Jersey”, but turned out to be a representative of Dr Pepper Snapple. The soft drinks company has decided to give Kelly $10,000 towards her big day, though the 23 year old hairdresser still says she doesn’t want anything extravagant; she now thinks she’ll be able to afford a honeymoon. The company don’t know yet who they’ll be sending as a bridesmaid: they’re talking about holding a contest, or asking a celebrity.
