6 Chic Inflatable Pools For Grown-Ass Adults, Because Sometimes Space Is Tight

When summer rolls around, it becomes uncomfortably clear that while not everybody is lucky enough to have a yard or a pool, most of us could definitely use one. For those of us trying to escape the heat on urban rooftops or tiny patios, blow-up pools are sometimes the only answer, which (up until now) has meant raiding the "kiddie pool" section on Amazon in search of hot-weather relief. But thanks to a few brands, there are officially inflatable pools chic enough for grown-ass adults . . . and a lot of them are continually restocking due to popular demand. So grab your SPF, some Rosé, and a swimsuit, because you'll want to relax in one of these ASAP!

  • This Adventurous Elopement Involved a Long Hike to a Waterfall, but Wow, It Was Worth It

    Mira and Pearce met on a dating app. Pearce hadn't even bothered to complete his profile, so Mira didn't want to swipe right, but her friend did it for her! And thank goodness she did, because the pair were meant to be, and in late 2018, they tied the knot in a unique way that totally represented who they are as a couple. Instead of a traditional wedding, they opted for an adventurous elopement and rented a cabin in Sooke on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. On the day of their wedding, the pair were very relaxed, despite the fact that it was supposed to rain. Pearce called it "the perfect day" for their wedding. The pair upped the adventure and decided to take their wedding photos at Mystic Beach, which involved a 45-minute hike just to reach the entrance. The pair said their "I dos" and were brimming with joy. Photographer Heather Stone captured their happiness against the stunning outdoor scenery. "Once we finished, they darted across the beach then looped back and jumped straight through the waterfall and into their futures together," Heather said. She captured a few more snaps of the pair until sunset, and they turned out absolutely incredible. Take a look for yourself!

  • The Love Story Behind This Couple's Marvel-Themed Wedding Is One For the (Comic) Books

    Shana and James's love story all began with a simple "like" on social media. The two messaged each other for a while and wound up going on a couple dates. Shana was late to both, but that didn't deter James. In fact, James's mom is always late, and he always thought he would marry someone with similar traits to his mother. "At the end of the second date when [we] hugged, James [said] he thought I fit him perfectly," Shana told POPSUGAR. "It was like puzzle pieces. We just went well together. It was later I found out from James that at that moment he knew he wanted to be with me for the rest of his life." When it came to popping the question, James took his time after purchasing the ring to plan the perfect, most memorable proposal. Finally, the idea came to him: first, he wrote and recorded an original song for Shana, then he filmed a music video that featured all of their friends and family with a surprise proposal at the end. Shana was told the film was for a Black love documentary, so she had no idea what James had up his sleeve. "While filming, all our family and friends jumped out of nowhere and screamed 'Shay!'" Shana said. "Looking around the corner to see everybody there, especially my best friend, who I thought was still in Michigan at the time, was totally shocking and mind-blowing. After turning back around I see James on bended knee and of course, I start to cry. He then asks me to marry him, and [I] said yes!" The gesture was sweet, romantic, and in Shana's words, the "most amazing proposal." It wasn't long after the engagement before the two started planning their big day. Shana knew what she wanted from the start, but agreed to let James have his input. As it turns out, James knew what he wanted as well - a Marvel comics-themed wedding - and immediately started purchasing the outfits and masks needed to make it happen. The couple got married in October 2019 in High Point, NC, and had a celebration of a lifetime, complete with superheroes and elegant touches.

  • Every Single Guest Dressed as a Disney Character at This Picture-Perfect Wedding

    I don't care if your heart is as frozen as Elsa's castle - it's about to melt into a puddle of emotions when you see the lengths this couple went to to throw their ultimate Disney dream wedding. Garrett and Jason, aka Woody and Buzz, went all out with their 2018 Disney-themed big day, and no detail was ignored. The best part? Every single guest (including their dog) dressed in costume as a different Disney character. Honestly, we can't get over it. And coming in at a close second in our books is the themed tablescapes, each based on a different Disney movie (complete with VHS tape). Garrett and Jason met at a friend's New Year's Eve party, and what they didn't know until their wedding day was that Garrett's parents and grandparents also met on New Year's Eve! It was meant to be. Here's what else Jason told us about their big Disney day. See all the photos (including their sweet wedding video!) ahead! Related: The Ultimate Ranking of Every Disney Movie Wedding - From a Villain's Fiasco to Magical Romance POPSUGAR: What was your favorite decorative or event detail of the day? Jason: Probably the table decorations we made by hand. We obsessed over every detail for the past year. We used those classic Disney VHS clamshells to signify the table name and theme. We chose the VHS clamshells since we both had them and watched them so much they got wore out when we were kids. For the newer movies that were never released on VHS (such as Moana and Up), I designed the VHS covers for them. Each table had elements from the movie; it looked like the movie came to life on the table. There was at least one light-up or glow-in-the-dark element at each table to make it extra magical. Another one of our favorite parts is our choreographed first dance. It was arranged and instructed by our great friend Alesha Bales, who weaved together a jazz version of "You've Got a Friend in Me" with a Spanish version of the song. She mixed elements from foxtrot, salsa, tango, and paso doble into the dance. POPSUGAR: What was the most emotional moment of the day? Jason: The ceremony, because Garrett cried, and he never does that! During our ceremony we had a mixing of the mai tai to signify the good, the bad, and all that comes with a marriage. We went with a mai tai since we love tiki drinks and we travel the country visiting tiki bars. The mai tai was also our signature drink for the wedding. POPSUGAR: What inspired the overall look and theme of the wedding? Jason: We had both been fans of Disney and Disney parks growing up. Garrett would frequently visit his friends who worked in the park, while I was inspired by the artists and Imagineers who influenced me to pursue a career in graphic design. But it wasn't until our first trip together to Disneyland that the love for Disney became more of an obsession. POPSUGAR: Why did you decide to do Disney costumes? Jason: We love Halloween, and we throw an elaborate themed party every year. We also enjoy Disneybounding and cosplay at Comic-Con. Family and friends must have thought we were crazy to have a costume wedding in the middle of August. But we were happily surprised that most all of our guests were really into it and dressed for the occasion, even our dog! Garrett wanted to dress as Buzz and Woody because "You've Got a Friend in Me" is one of his favorite Disney songs, and he has known for a long time he wanted that to be the song he danced to as his first dance. So, of course, I had to be Sheriff Woody. Both characters are reminiscent of each of our personalities. Related: Disney Just Released New Princess Wedding Dresses For Your Own Happily Ever After
