Brides-to-be and their friends are facing disappointment after learning they unwittingly scheduled their bachelorette parties in Nashville, Tenn., at the same time as the NFL draft.
Those planning a bachelorette party in Nashville this weekend are going to be upset to find out the NFL Draft is happening 👀— SportsBetting Locks (@LockedBets) April 26, 2019
The city, best known as a mecca for country music, has also earned a new title in recent years: one of America's leading non-Vegas bachelorette party destinations, thanks to its plentiful honky tonks and drinking tours.
Residents have tolerated bridal parties descending on their city for days of debauchery to celebrate a last fling before the ring. But now, many bachelorette groups are finding that the NFL draft, scheduled a year in advance, is ruining their trips.
Only we would accidentally plan my bachelorette party on the same weekend/location as the NFL draft 😂— Abby Chicka (@abbychicka) April 25, 2019
Not only has the crowd changed, but so have plans as streets are shut down and pedal taverns are pushed off the popular Broadway strip.
“I don’t want to hang out with a bunch of football guys," one bride told Nashville news station WZTV. "I’m good. I already have to watch football on Sundays. I don’t need to see any more of that.”
Many told the station they didn’t know the draft was being held in the city.
“No Idea, no idea, and I think my dad’s very disappointed in me that I didn’t know,” one woman told the outlet. Another added, “When did they start planning the draft? Because I feel like I just found out about this."
“I found out three days ago, and it made me want to cry,” a disappointed bride said.
However, bachelorette party attendees did not receive much sympathy on Twitter.

I honestly was kinda lukewarm about the draft being in Nashville BUT NOW I AM SO HAPPY IT IS— Nicole Auerbach (@NicoleAuerbach) April 25, 2019
Thoughts and prayers for this woman’s husband, due to her lack of research skills and due diligence he will suffer with no football this season, my advice, leave while she is stuck in Nashville having a crummy bachelorette party #nfldraft pic.twitter.com/mXLA6evNax— Andrew Kossuth (@andrew_kossuth) April 26, 2019
Picturing a group of chicks rolling into Nashville right now for bachelorette party weekend only to find a sea of dudes wearing NFL jerseys drinking their faces off for a DRAFT is downright hilarious to me.— Garrett Forsythe (@PeasNGarretts) April 26, 2019
