One bridesmaid said she will boycott the upcoming NFL season because of the draft.

 

NASHVILLE, TN (WZTV/CNN) – The NFL draft kicked off Thursday night in Nashville.

The city isn’t just known for country music. It’s also apparently the bachelorette party capital of the country.

All the focus on football is putting a damper on some of the pre-wedding festivities.

The NFL event has closed streets, pushed pedal taverns off Broadway and brought in hundreds of thousands of football fans, infiltrating bachelorette party headquarters.

“It just changes like the crowd, like what you’re here for. Like, I don’t want to hang out with a bunch of football guys,” one bride said. “Nope, I’m good. I already have to watch football on Sundays. I don’t need to see any more of that.”

For the parties, the NFL draft came as a shock.

“No Idea, and I think my dad’s very disappointed in me that I didn’t know,” one woman said.

“When did they start planning the draft? Because I feel like I just found out about this,” another woman said.

“I found out three days ago, and it made me want to cry,” a bride said.
