You should post this on the Ohio boards on CraigsList 🙂  People might be more inclined to bid (and bid alot!) if they knew they didn’t have to travel (airfare ain’t cheap!).  Good luck!!

Technically you can still be married to your honey without having to spend money on a wedding.

I have an idea!   You mentioned "if everyone had just gave me .25 cent it would pay for the wedding…"    Well, there are certain auctions on ebay where you can sell numerous quanities of certain items (i.e. a buyer will have 25 candles for sale and post one auction where each buyer can purchase as many as they want).   It would be a buy it now auction.    So if you set up one of those selling 25 cent "shares" of your wedding, and really posted a good story — about you love of fiance, being out of work, the lack of interest/support of your family, etc., you might get a lot of purchases.  Those 25 cents could add up quick!.    You would need to do a 10 day auction.  Include lots of pics of yourself, and pics of your $5 dress from Fashion Bug (make sure to include backstory on buying that b/c its probably the least expensive wedding dress in history!) along with the jewelry, so that poeple will know you aren’t splurging unnecessarily.    I was really sympathetic to your story and maybe others would be to.    I’m not sure how you set up those auctions — I thikn they’re call multi-quantity auctions or something.   Let me know what you think!

Ooops i forgot to say, for the quanitity of the "item" you are selling, you would want to pick 1000 or 2000, so that plenty of people could buy shares if they wanted to.
