Karina Smirnoff's wedding planning is coming along just as she has hoped.

The Dancing With Stars hoofer told us back in March that she and baseball player Brad Penny would be getting hitched in January...

We're happy to report that she wasn't fibbing to try and throw us off. The couple will become husband and wife on January 21, 2012. Smirnoff's rep also tells E! News exclusively that the nuptials will take in Cozumel, Mexico.

"I have a lot of family and friends that live in Europe and Israel, and Brad has a big family in Oklahoma," Smirnoff, who recently stripped down for Playboy, told People magazine this weekend at Tao nightclub in Las Vegas. "It's going to be a very diverse, colorful crowd."

She also revealed that she's deciding between six wedding dress. Yes, six.

All, however, have one thing in common. "I want the train to be as long as Hollywood Boulevard because it's like, you only get to wear it once," she told us in March. "I want it to be memorable. Like a princess."
