Petra Ecclestone

The Wedding You Could

NEVER Afford

It's amazing ... Petra Ecclestone blew $85 million on Candy Spelling's 57,000 mansion, and she could still afford a wedding that rivaled the one recently thrown for those 2 kids in England.

Petra tied the knot with businessman James Stunt in Italy yesterday, in the same village where Tom and Katie got hitched.  But this wedding was a lot more expensive -- reportedly more than $5 mil -- and a lot grander.

For starters, Andrea Bocelli was there performing "Time to Say Goodbye," the first dance was courtesy of Eric Clapton, and the crowd then danced to The Black Eyed Peas.  BTW, Peas don't come cheap -- $2.4 million for the live appearance.

Petra -- the daughter of Formula One billionaire Bernie Ecclestone -- was decked out in a $130,000 Vera Wang special.

Guests guzzled wine at $6,500 a bottle -- Chateau Petrus, of course.

And, of course, Paris, Nicky and Kathy Hilton were there.

Wait till Petra Petra's dad gets the credit card statement.

For one, TMZ, you already used that lame headline for Kim. For two, try as you might, you're never going to make this boring little rich girl interesting or famous.

Get over it people. Compared to their net worth and yearly take from the racing circuit, thie wedding was pocket change. It's not up to them to solve the world's woes with their checkbooks.

"Wait till Petra's dad gets the credit card statement."
He'll probably shrug his shoulders and mutter: "It's a bargain."

Hmm, let's assume her dad is worth just 1 Billion Dollars... well then that $5 Million Pounds ($8.2 Million Dollars) is 0.00000082% of his worth.

Well, I at least give the Hiltons' credit this time. They saved some money by actually shopping at the goodwill for those dresses.

Pari******on must have felt like Poor White Trash in comparison. Well, at least Paris isn't poor.
