PLANNING A WEDDING POOL PARTY
If you want to have a wedding that is more fun than formal, why not consider having a wedding pool party? Whether you prefer an atmosphere that is cool and casual or one that is trendy and wild, you can easily design an amazing wedding that everyone is certain to remember for years to come. Let’s look at how easy it can be to pull off a wedding pool party. Finding a Venue If you have access to a large backyard with a pool, this is a great (and inexpensive) option, but if you do not, you can contact local hotels and resorts to see if they will rent out their amazing pool. Regardless of where you have it, make sure the yard looks great. If you are using a friend or family member’s pool for free, you can always offer to pay for a professional lawn care service to come out a few days before the wedding to ensure everything is perfect. Decorations From colorful flowers and tiki torches in the background to floating candles and flowers in the pool, there are plenty of decoration options that will look great on the wedding pictures. For an elegant look, consider renting large tents, as well as matching tables and chairs. Choose gorgeous table runners and chair covers. Accent the tables using a vase of flowers. You can also add a couple of drops of blue food coloring to the water filling a hurricane vase. Place a floating candle on top to set the mood. Set out waterproof cameras to allow your guests to capture some of the fun moments. Bridal Party Wear Depending on how formal you want your wedding to be, you can opt for anything from sundresses to swimwear. (Just be sure your bridesmaids are comfortable with this.) Get your bridesmaids involved in choosing what to wear and keep in mind that not every woman looks great in the same swimsuit. You may want to choose a color and allow your bridesmaids to pick a style depending on their body type. Tie everything together with matching jewelry, sandals, or sarongs.Food You may choose to put together a menu using tasty cocktails and appetizers or have a luau or barbeque. This is entirely up to you. Incorporate a few tropical drinks topped with mini umbrellas, as well as bottles of water, beer, and soda. Gifts Give your guests something they can truly use, such as mini bottles of suntan lotion adorned with custom labels commemorating your day. Other fun selections include sunglasses, parasols printed with your wedding date and names, and beach towels. Pool Safety Pool safety is essential if you want your wedding to go off without a hitch. This is particularly important if small children will be involved. You can hire someone to specifically watch the pool at all times or opt to put a fence around it. In today’s world, there is no reason to have a traditional and boring wedding. Wedding pool parties are becoming an increasingly popular choice because they offer the opportunity for some memorable fun in the sun.
