First things first, choose your locale. If you plan to hang poolside, make sure it’s a spot you’ll want to spend a lot of time lounging at, like a cool boutique hotel or Airbnb.

Incorporate a DIY element or something personal just for the bride. This floral swim cap is such a fun DIY! They found a vintage swim cap online and used hot glue and floral adhesive tape (u-glue) to hold the flowers in place.

You can prepare your own homemade shrub for this pineapple cocktail beforehand. Here’s how:

Pineapple Shrub
1c. diced pineapple
1c. apple cider vinegar
1c. sugar

Put pineapple + vinegar into sealed mason jars and let sit at room temp for 7-10 days, shaking them briefly every day. Strain out the liquid with a potato masher. Pour the liquid and sugar into a saucepan and simmer until sugar has dissolved. Let cool and return to sealed jar, then enjoy. Tip: You can store this in the refrigerator for several weeks!
