Money led to Mex­ico

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS - SARAH BLAKE

COST was the de­cid­ing fac­tor in choos­ing Mex­ico as the lo­ca­tion for Karl Ste­fanovic’s wed­ding to Jas­mine Yar­brough.

The cou­ple weighed up op­tions in Aus­tralia, the Pa­cific and In­done­sia be­fore de­cid­ing on Cen­tral Amer­ica. “They looked at Wol­gan Val­ley in the Blue Moun­tains but it was just too ex­pen­sive,” a source said. “To have the wed­ding they wanted, it was go­ing to cost more than $700,000. They get to do that in Mex­ico at a much lower and far more rea­son­able price.”

It’s un­der­stood the cou­ple also looked at Kokomo Is­land in Fiji at a cost of sev­eral hun­dred thou­sand dol­lars and con­sid­ered prop­er­ties in Bali be­fore opt­ing for the One & Only Palmilla re­sort in the Mex­i­can beach haven of Cabo.

Ste­fanovic is un­der­stood to have ne­go­ti­ated a dis­counted rate at the re­sort, plus there are cheaper ho­tel op­tions nearby.
