Airplane Adventures: The Bachelorette Party

This past weekend, MOH Morticia and BM Rocket were kind enough to indulge in my love of country music and cowboys by accompanying me on a weekend trip to Nashville for my bachelorette party! BM Spring was unable to make the trip, but she was there in spirit!

We departed on Friday after work, decked out in cowboy boots, homemade T-shirts, and tiaras (obvi).

“Country Fried Bachelorette Weekend” was our slogan.

A lot of our trip revolved around food and music. We ate at some ridiculously good restaurants, including Kocktails and Kouture, Southern Steak and Oyster Company, Bella Nashville, and my personal favorite, Mad Platter. If you are into menu stalking as much as I am, check out some of the food at these places. I gained at least 10 pounds over the course of three days.

Nightlife in Nashville is unlike any I have experienced in any other city. Live country cover bands at every bar, no cover, and friendly people wherever you go. We encountered no less than three more bachelorette parties, a bachelor party, and groups from Germany and Australia.

It helped that I wore a light-up sash, button, and ring out to the bars, because it drew a lot of attention and was a great conversation starter.

Days were spent exploring the city, shopping, riding bikes, soaking up the sun, and day drinking. While we didn’t partake in any of the museums or art galleries, there were plenty dotted around the city and we probably could have filled another day with sightseeing.

But what truly made this trip special was the women that spent the time and funds to make it so memorable. From the vast selection of my favorite snacks for the airplane ride, to the tiaras and other bachelorette adornments, to the late nights spent dancing at the honkey tonks, these girls know how to make a bride feel loved. I know I’m biased, but I pretty much have the best bridal party ever!

While we were in Nashville, Mr. Plane was busy in Toronto celebrating his bachelor party. He and BM Chopper, GM Dashboard, and GM Loafer were doing things like taking in a baseball game, going salmon fishing, and other manly things.

Super sexy manly man

Both of the Airplanes had great weekends celebrating with our closest friends, but now it’s time to really put our noses to the wedding grindstone. We’re almost at the two-month mark and stuff is getting real, yo!

Did you spend a weekend celebrating your bachelorette status?

    I’ve been dying to go to Nashville- driven through many times, but ever since watching the show Nashville, I want to go! Never thought of it as a bachelorette destination. I like that idea!

    I’ve been dying to go to Nashville! Maybe I’ll work on convincing my friends to go for my bachelorette!

    Also – do you happen to know where Mr. Plane went salmon fishing near Toronto?

    Nashville is my favorite city! My bachelorette party was there—we loved it so much that we had my best friend’s bachelorette party there too!

    Haven’t been to Nashville since I was a kid.

    It was on the possible list of Pre-Wedding / Wedding / Honeymoon Extravaganza (5 Weeks off of work)… BUT at the last minute got cancelled due to weather :-( *sad face*

    Mr TTR & I most definitely want to get there in the future

    I take that it has similarities to Memphis when it comes to Bars & Clubs (great music / no cover charge) just that the vibe is Country vs Blues / Soul / Memphis Rock

    Mr TTR & I had a great time in Memphis, so I assume we’d enjoy Nashville as well. (We are music lovers)

    BTW, your Bachelorette (and Hubby-2B’s Bachelor Weekend) sound great, you guys truly must have great friends, nothing like a weekend away with “the Guys” or “the Girls”… remember to do this even after you are married… it is important to treasure your friends.

    Lol, and it makes “reunions” with your Spouse all the sweeter !!

    ;-) *wink*

    @This Time Round: We actually did Memphis during a road trip last fall and had more fun in Nashville, but that might be because we are bigger country fans than blues fans — I’m POSITIVE you would have a great time!

    Nashville is so great! Mr. B and I were there in May and we kept commenting on how many bachelorette parties there were. So glad you had a great time!
