Tubing party

I haven't posted about real weddings for a while, but how fun is this pre-wedding tubing party? What a great way to have all your guests relax and get to know each other before the ceremony and reception.

Such a fun idea!!

We planned to do a similar thing at our wedding last year but had to cancel because it was unusually cold. Would have been a blast, these pictures make it look so great! Nothing like getting to know someone in their bathing suit!

Hey joanna! So, im completely and totally in love with these photos http://joannagoddard.blogspot.com/2011/06/san-francisco-bouncy-balls.html, but right after you posted it, it was sold out! Cant stop thinking about it! Do you have any idea if it gonna come back, or if there is another place selling them??

Im gonna email them to see, but though i could ask you too!

Tks xx

All I can think about is people forgetting to wear sunscreen and being beet red in all of the wedding photos... :/

Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

my friends and I go tubing once a year like this - SOOOOOO much fun!

Desi McKinnon said...

i love tubing. it's a great way to meet and greet.

Margaret said...

growing up in texas this was a main stay activity of our summers...love it as a pre wedding activity!

Little Treasures said...

Oh my.. This is fantastic!!
Only if I can get my husband to get married again! ;)

Nina said...

Agree with others that it is great idea. Weddings can be so awkward because guest dont know each other but surely they've lot to talk about after a start like this.

Ashley said...

That is an incredible idea. I want to do that right now!

Trina said...

Dude, one of my dreams is to rent an inner tube at Curry Village in Yosemite and just float on down the Merced River on a hot summer day...away from the crowds on the valley floor...just me and the burbling water.

Jenni Bailey said...

That looks SO fun!!

Paislea Elyse said...

Oh my goodness, summer is calling my name.

olivia rae said...

my friends and i have recently become obsessed with floating down the river! it's seriously the most fun thing ever...http://www.olivia-rae.com/2011/06/floating-edisto.html and http://www.olivia-rae.com/2011/06/sunday.html

Sarbear said...

So much fun. Floating is big here in Missouri and a tubing trip and camping was what we did for my sister's bachelorette party. It was such a good time.

AJD ∞ said...

If I wasn't already married, I would steal this idea. At the same time, I can definitely adapt it for some other type of celebration! How fun!

Corrie Anne said...

That's superfun! Except I always get super scratched up when I go tubing!! Bruised Bride!! Haha. We're doing something sort of similar. My fiance and I are super active so we're going to have a "5k fun run" followed by a chuckwagon diner in the park by the lake! Next week! I can't wait!

JaneG said...

I did this same float last summer with my then 2 1/2 year old, my husband and my sister visiting from Australia. It is the Truckee river, floating from Tahoe City down to Alpine Meadows right by Lake Tahoe. it is a fun float and so pretty, gets pretty crazy on the weekends. I'm sure this group had a great time together

Taylor said...

I love this idea!! It looks so beautiful. I always say it's better to have some kind of activity. You will remember it forever compared to just going out to a restaurant.

PJ | Home and Garden Decor said...

I love that idea! I'm wondering why I never heard of it before.
It's a great way to meet and greet each other in a very relaxed way and river tubing is fun pure!

Patricia said...

that is such a unique and cool idea! what a brilliant laid back couple it must be.

Awwww, I used to tube down this river (the Truckee River)once a week every summer when I ran a day camp in Tahoe. Sigh...I didn't know how good I had it then.

lady lyles said...

I LOVE it. Noted.

Alejandra said...

I'd just love a tubing party any old day for fun. No special occasion necessary!

julia said...

Sounds like the perfect thing for a shotgun wedding!

My friends did this last summer for their engagement party! They were even going to surprise us by getting married right then and there {we were staying on a sweet farm in Charlottesville, VA}. They didn't surprise us, and instead, they got married last weekend at another farm :)

Maria C said...

Great idea! We're having a pool party a week before our wedding. Needs to get me a tan way before then!
