Are you a maid of honor planning a bachelorette trip for your best girl? If you’re in the beginning stages of planning, choosing a location can be a true task. With so many choices, it can be overwhelming, but if you want somewhere known for a fun time, full of good music, and Instagram-worthy – Nashville is where you should head + this blog post is for you!
where to stay
First, you will want to pick the perfect place to stay. Whether that is an Airbnb or a hotel, Nashville has so many fabulous choices, but remember to book early! It is also helpful to have an idea of what the group activities will be, so you stay in a location that is relatively close to everything. The Gulch, 12 South, and East Nashville are popular neighborhoods to find exactly what you are looking for.
what to do
The activities and itinerary are very important! Plan out the weekend with a Mimosa Brunch at your Airbnb before shopping in 12 South and the Gulch – where you will find Kristin Cavallari’s Uncommon James and Jessie James Decker’s Kittenish. Cocktails at the White Limozeen – Dolly Parton’s new rooftop bar at the top of The Graduate Hotel – are a MUST! If drinking on rooftops is the bride’s thing, you should also check out LA Jackson, L27, and Rare Bird. When in Nashville, you have to venture down to Broadway. Start out your day with a Pedal Tavern before hitting up the Honky Tonks. Tootsies Orchid Lounge and The Stage are a couple legendary bars, while Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, Jason Aldean’s Kitchen and Rooftop Bar, Florida Georgia Line’s FGL House, and Blake Shelton’s Ole Red are very popular. Honestly, once you get down to Broadway, you will have the best time no matter what bar you choose!
what to eat
Did I mention all the yummy food Nashville has to offer?! Rosepepper Cantina, 5th and Taylor, Butcher & Bee, and The Optimist are great choices to fill your itinerary. If you decide to only take one tip from this guide – it’s to add Hampton Social to your list for one meal or at least for the Rosé Lounge. You will not be disappointed…trust me!! Oh, and maybe you need a little sweet treat. Five Daughter’s Bakery has the most amazing donuts – It will be hard to pick just one!
how to decorate
So, you have your perfect location with exciting activities and delicious meals, now the fun part – DÉCOR! “Let’s Get Nashty” balloons can make a big impact in the house with the theme of the weekend. Add a ring and cowboy boot balloon and have a great backdrop for photos! For the bride, a cowboy hat with a veil is the perfect touch for the weekend – along with matching “boot scootin’” shirts and fanny packs for the group. Keep up with the theme for the weekend with cute cups, straws (…obvi a bride straw for the bride-to-be), cocktail napkins, and confetti!
