I surprised FI by getting some of our pictures in the St. Louis Cardinals stadium.  He was so excited!  Our photographer was Beth Berry and she did a fantastic job!  Here are my favorites!

The guys:

Their Calvin Klein linen pants were on sale at Men's Wearhouse and they're going to wear white button down shirts with brown belts.

The Girls

Finally decided on the girls.  I'm letting them pick out their own dresses from J.Crew in chocolate brown.  Here are some of the options.

UPDATE: All of my girls ended up picking the same dress!  It's the Erica dress, below.  And they will carry mini white calla lilly bouqets.

We originally wanted to have our wedding in Jamaica but after a lot of research we decided that Mexico is a better option.  Jamaica was just going to be too expensive for us and our guests.  I feel like it took ages to find the perfect resort but we did it.  Just booked Dreams Riviera Cancun for October 8th.  It opened in 2009 and is just beautiful, not to mention affordable.  I'm picturing a beach ceremony with a dinner/dancing reception on the pool deck and then continuing the party at the resorts club. 

***If anyone else is doing a DW I highly recommend facebook for wedding info.*** Almost every major resort has a facebook page with wedding discussions and pictures of past weddings.  Here are a few pics of the resort.
