Lisa Wilkinson confirms she won't be at Karl Stefanovic's wedding

Awkward...

By Alex Lilly

Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough are set to tie the knot at the end of the year, but one famous face won't be in attendance.

And to be honest, we're a little surprised.

Lisa Wilkinson, Karl's former Today Show co-host has said she won't be going to the lavish nuptials in Mexico.

"I have not been invited," the journalist revealed to the Daily Telegraph's Sydney Confidential column.

Lisa made the move from Channel Nine's breakfast show to Network Ten as a host on The Sunday Project in November 2017 due to a reported issue of equal pay.

Woman's Day revealed that Lisa was paid $1.1 million in comparison to Karl's super-size salary, comprised of $2 million in wages and an extra $1 million for use of his image by Nine.

"There are elements of Today which I do miss but I am so focused on my new life and the new challenges which I have," she told Confidential.

Karl wasn't there at Lisa and husband Peter FitzSimons' vow renewal ceremony in 2017 either, even though they still worked together at that point.

Meanwhile, Karl and Jasmine recently celebrated their respective bucks and hens parties in style.

Woman's Day is told Karl has splashed out hundreds of thousands of dollars to ensure Jasmine has the sort of wedding most brides can only dream of, but first they enjoyed their last nights of singledom.

The Today Show host's guests were caught on film partying on the balcony of ironman Grant Kenny's Minyama Island mansion, where the first stage of the final night of the bucks weekend was held.

During the early morning broadcast on October 26, Karl claimed he was too ill to continue and then flew straight to Brisbane to begin his epic celebration with newsreader Deborah Knight having to step in.

So did Karl chuck a sickie for his wild weekend?

Jasmine and her girls celebrated in Melbourne and splashed out more than $10,000 for a two-day celebration, including a custom-made cake decorated with a penis.

With a rumoured monthly allowance of $15,000 from Karl, the bride-to-be and about 20 friends enjoyed crates of $300-a-bottle Dom Perignon champagne and an endless supply of lobster and oysters during her party weekend.

We can't wait to see the wedding pics!
