Catering and Drinks - The couple reportedly treated the guests to food that cost around £200 per person. She invited around 350 guests, so the catering alone may cost £70K. It's also believed that 750 bottles of Nyetimber 2010 Blanc de Noir Millington, costing £56,250, were served during the reception.

Wedding Rings - Pippa was spotted wearing a huge diamond encrusted wedding ring, which is estimated at £15,500, after the church service, while the groom James' platinum band may cost £1440.

Floristry - St. Mark's Church in Englefield, where Pippa and James said their "I dos", was decorated with pale pink roses and white flowers with green leaves, which matched her small bridal bouquet. The arrangement is estimated to cost £16,000.

Bridebook estimated that the total cost for Pippa's big day is £250,000. According to Daily Mail, the cost could have gone up to £1.2 million, though her family didn't have to foot the full bill, thanks to some generous friends who gave them discounts.

Following the wedding, the couple reportedly will spend a week in the Pacific Island of Tetiaroa. James' family owns a 10,000-acre estate near Loch Ness in the Highlands area. After that, they will head to the second destination, a hunting lodge in Scotland. They will end the honeymoon by catching the final of the French Open tennis tournament in two weeks' time.
