Eli Manning to wed girlfriend in Mexico







Updated Thursday, April 17th 2008, 9:20 AM






Giants quarterback Eli Manning will wed his longtime girlfriend in a private ceremony this weekend in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, friends of Manning said Wednesday.


The Super Bowl hero and college sweetheart Abby McGrew were flying to Mexico Thursday for a Saturday wedding at the One&Only Resort.


"It will be small, just friends and family," a Manning friend said.


The wedding party will include Manning's brother, Peyton, who won Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts. Their older brother, Cooper, will be there, along with their parents, Olivia and Archie, also a retired football great.


Eli Manning, 27, proposed to McGrew, 24, in March 2007. The couple met while students at the University of Mississippi.


The perky blond is a Nashville native working in Manhattan as an account executive for Pamela Roland, a designer of evening wear and wedding dresses.


Eli Manning is famously low-key and has repeatedly told friends he planned an understated wedding.


He reportedly proposed during a quiet night at home at their Hoboken, N.J., condo - and McGrew quickly said yes.


Giants fans were down on Eli Manning early in the season, but they cheered him on as the underdog team roared through the playoffs, including memorable wins in Dallas and frigid Green Bay.


Eli Manning reportedly told McGrew to watch the games from outdoor seats because he feared she could jinx the team if she sat in heated luxury boxes.


In the biggest test of all, Eli Manning led the Giants to a huge Super Bowl upset of the New England Patriots, who were gunning for an unbeaten season.


The One&Only is located on the picturesque Baja California peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean merges with the Sea of Cortez.


Luxury suites run up to $2,600 a night, and the resort offers a wedding package that includes a horse-drawn carriage ride to a rustic chapel.


Other celebrities who have wed at the resort include "Fantastic Four" star Ioan Gruffudd and Rascal Flatts guitarist Joe Don Rooney, who got hitched to Tiffany Fallon, Playboy's 2005 Playmate of the Year.
