Pool Party, Cool Party, Wedding Day Festivity

Summertime holds a plethora of creative possibilities when it comes to weddings, one of which includes a favorite American pastime of the season – going to the pool! Or rather, to better fit our intended scenario – “having a pool present (while your guests come to you to help celebrate.)” While the tiny body of shimmering water appears particularly inviting when one is constantly enveloped by the fiery temperatures of Earth life, we are (unfortunately) not here today to discuss pool parties, or splashing, not even tanning. Instead, we’ve decided that pools can play a huge role in wedding decor too! In other words, to compensate for the lack of water-based activity, simply throw yourself into amplifying the visual properties of “pool time” instead!

No need to keep track of each individual piece of decoration when you can simply project mesmerizing textures onto the water’s surface!

Another effortless way to beautify your liquid space: flowers! We think vibrant individual blooms such as the ones pictured above work best in delivering the natural, organic look; they seem to carry a bit more control in presentation than the arbitrary sprinkling of petals.

But if you’re up for a more cohesive arrangement, bouquets are fabulous pool accents too! From far away, they’re practically giant, colorful, floating pom-poms!

Imagine crickets chirping, the voices of the wedding celebration floating in the background just as these paper lanterns rest on the water’s surface and provide none other than a soothing presence at the end of the day.

Not your average way of hosting a bridesmaids’ party, but having to scavenge the waters for the one box with your name on makes this all the more enticing!

Trend Alert: Pitch Me a Tent For My Wedding
