Jessica Simpson’s $1.4-Million Wedding... by the Numbers
Fashion mogul Jessica Simpson and new husband Eric Johnson did not skimp on their wedding in Santa Barbara over the weekend.
E! News reports the lavish shindig cost roughly $1.4 million, and they broke down some of the costs.
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 Flowers: E! says the newlyweds probably dropped around $150,000 for the beautiful floral arrangements from Mark's Garden.
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!
