The San Ysidro Ranch: Jessica and Eric’s wedding location is lovely, but just a tad pricey. Just to rent the garden space for the ceremony is $30,000. For privacy, the couple also reserved all the restaurant spaces, bringing the rental bill to at least $150,000.
The Food: With 275 guests and 96 hours of festivities, including the rehearsal dinner on Thursday, a 4th of July barbeque on Friday, the wedding day on Saturday and a farewell brunch on Sunday, the total was around $300,000. This amount didn’t include alcohol.

The Dress: We’ve seen the gorgeous sketches of the custom-made Carolina Herrera dress, but the cost? It would most likely sell for $30,000, plus Jessica was wearing an estimated $750,000 in jewels!
