ECLECTIC & ARTSY
The Eclectic, Artsy Bachelorette is creative, liberal and diverse. She appreciates hand crafted, mismatched items and all things uncommon. She is particular about the music she listens to, and enjoys being different. She is free spirited and may be a world traveler whose expression of ones-self is a blend of various cultures. Feminine, romantic and unique define her individual style.
You may or may not necessarily agree with this bride's wide-ranging style or beliefs, but she's a darn good friend. Lucky for you, Nashville has plenty to offer the eclectic, artsy bride-to-be. Read below for some fabulously unique bachelorette party ideas.
