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.

I hate to break it to ya...but I could afford a wedding like that. Point is, I wouldn't want to. My millions are better spent in useful & more positive ways.

My husband and I had a very small wedding here in Charleston and then went to NYC to see my family and to "honeymoon." Stupid to see people spend that kind of money when there are people starving to death around the world.

It's nice to see how people with REAL money put on a wedding. No reality T.V. cameras following them around. No advertising so that they can recover the money they spent. Hear that Kim? No cheesy wedding here!

She's baaaack    

So what? Big f'n deal. Everyone thinks they can out-do the royal family of England and it ain't gonna happen. Those folks have been around since like the dark ages, so they automatically win. You know who did it right? Not that they are superstars or mega-freaking-rich but they are celebs, and that is Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo (sp?). I'm not a big fan of either of them, but they shared their wedding with like 36 people TOPS, which seems to me like the only people who they cared to be with to celebrate their marriage are the ones who really mattered ... and *THAT* my friends, is class.

Its a shame that people like that spend so much money on a wedding that will most likely end in divorce.

People like her often turn to drugs because life has been too easy, and they get bored.

It's not a question of being jealous or of hating on anyone. That kind of public display is tacky and classless and speaks volumes about her and her family's character. During any time and especially during this difficult economic time. Warren Buffet, for example would NEVER do something like that. Warren Buffet would also NEVER drown his kids in money like that...he will take care of his kids but will leave the bulk of his estate to charity.
*
Warren Buffet cares about the environment - drives a hybrid. These Eurotrash put on fireworks displays which poison the environment.
*
When you have that type of money, I do think you have a responsibility to help "solve the world's problems" by contributing to charity. I absolutely think so. Because you KNOW her papa did some VERY ILLEGAL things to amass the wealth he did. And you know her mama is a COMPLETE GOLD DIGGER. So it's the least her papa can do....contribute to charity.

This Petra chick suffered from meningitis as a child. That kind of thing has repercussions later on. She will most likely need medical help for future complications due to the meningitis she suffered as a child. So it would behoove her and her tacky trashy family to contribute to medical research ... the research that she herself will need later on.

Talking of trashy families - Kathy Hilton looks high as a kite - LOL!!

i don't see the problem the whiners are trying to point out.

that wedding put a lot of paychecks in a lot of peoples pockets this week and for the rest of this year.

making work so people can earn a living is just as good as giving away money with no strings attached, and many times better.
