I DO, I DID, I’M DONE: The Rise of Divorce Parties

I DO, I DID, I’M DONE: The Rise of Divorce Parties

 Many cultures believe with destruction comes new life. This was certainly true for Nicole Niesner, 36, of Saskatchewan, Canada, who describes the day her divorce was finalized as one of the best days of her life. Nicole wanted to turn her divorce into a brand new beginning, and she thought the best way to start the process was with a divorce party.  In an article that originally appeared on LoveWhatMatters.com, Nicole talks about the day her divorce was finalized:

“I had three choices: live it like every other day, cry and be miserable all day or celebrate a new beginning, a second chance. I decided I wanted to celebrate and acknowledge the day. I dug my dress out of my storage room and we all got dressed up, had a blast taking pictures and reminiscing about our weddings, children, families and friends. It was all positive and meant to lift me up. They wanted me to know that I am loved by many and that I’m going to be okay.  I’m so grateful for that night and I’m ready for the next chapter. I’m going to live it to its fullest!”

After all the effort that people put into their wedding day, the day they formalize their divorce can often feel empty and awkward – on top of whatever emotions one might have about the end of their marriage.  That’s why the divorce party has become quite the trend over the past few years, finding its way into celebrity gossip, movies, and many Pinterest boards.
