Well, I’ve seen a bride go white water rafting on her wedding day and there was another bride here who ran a marathon-type race, so I say go for it. Time management is key, and I’d ask your hair stylist about the pool water affecting your hair. Just be careful not to burn or get tan lines.

sounds like fun but may be kinda weird…. I know my family isn’t always comfortable in swim suits… especially in front of future in laws they don’t know very well….

I second Angel on the hair/makeup/tan thing

I’ve seen pool parties where no one actually gets into the pool. It just happens to be a party near the pool. If there’s going to be kids there, they can enjoy it while the adults meet and hang out.

Regardless of if anyone is swimming or not, it still sounds like a great venue to have the rehearsal dinner. I’m all for laid back RD’s. I say go for it. I don’t think there’s much more that would relax me the evening before the wedding than sitting on the side of the pool with my feet dangling in the water! Have fun!!

We’re having our Rehearsal Dinner at a sports bar! I say go for it. The adults don’t have to swim, they can just hang out and have a good time. Plus, it will tire the kids out so they sleep well!

I agree, sounds like tons of fun! If it is in the evening, you should be safe from the tan lines/sunburn problem. Of course no one who doesn’t want to swim would have to, but as my family, I’m sure they would love to take a dip and chill out before the big day.

It sounds fantastic!  And not everybody has to swim at a pool party, or even wear a swimsuit.  You can sit in a lawnchair on the deck and just enjoy the pool.  I would make sure that you have plenty of sunscreen on hand, and that everyone uses it.  Just so you don’t have pictures full of racoon-eyed sunglasses burns the next day…

Great idea to have the key people get together for a casual party before the wedding.  Doesn’t need to be an all-day thing, either.  Just set the timing of it to coordinate w/ the rehearsal and to amke sure it wraps up with plenty of time for you to get your beauty rest for the big day.
