Calling all newly engaged gals- it's time to celebrate your engagement in style! In honor of Swim Day (we know, there's a literally a holiday for everything), we're planning the perfect poolside soirée. The summer sunshine is calling our name and we can't wait to throw on our favorite maxi-dress (and SPF, of course), sip fruity cocktails and celebrate L-O-V-E! We're picturing cafe lights strung from either side of the backyard, tiki torches glowing in the evening sun, and charming decor of preppy shades of blue and crisp white. Check out the slideshow for our favorite backyard pool party inspiration pictures and start planning your own summertime bash!
