Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's big day was no doubt an extravagant affair.

First off, it was a destination wedding, taking place at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Fasano, Italy, which alone can cost a pretty penny.

Throw in all the preceremony festivities, along with the fact that the bride wore a dress designed by Giambattista Valli and the groom sported a Tom Ford tux (just to name a few of the expenses), and the price tag quickly rises for sure.

But is it possible that the whole shindig actually set the newlyweds back as much as $6.5 million, as has been widely speculated?

Quite simply, no.

A source tells E! News that the price of the wedding was actually nowhere near that amount.

As for other little tidbits of info about the nuptials, our source says that, contrary to reports, Timberlake was not sick while exchanging vows with his now-wife.

Also, none of the guests in attendance, who included Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg and Biel's 7th Heaven costar Beverley Mitchell, had to sign nondisclosure agreements, but rather confidentiality agreements.

The guests also received bags in their rooms that contained local olive oil, bread and wine, says our source.

And while Timberlake did sing a song to Biel penned just for the occasion, the source added that it is not known yet if the tune actually had a name or if it will eventually be released for all of us to hear.
