When to Go

If you have some flexibility with you and your bridesmaids’ schedule, the best time of year to plan your Nashville bachelorette party is during its warmer months: May through October. Early spring and November may be slightly colder, but the city won’t be as crowded compared to the summer months.

Do You Need a Car?

No! Unless it’s more reasonable for you and your bridesmaids to drive to Nashville, you can easily fly into Nashville International Airport (BNA) and be car-free for your entire trip. Chances are, you’ll be doing a lot of bar crawling, so Uber and Lyft are likely your best options. Better yet: If you stay downtown, you’ll be within walking distance to a ton of the best bars and restaurants.
