The Trend of Divorce Parties


Marriages are often huge parties with friends and family members celebrating the joining of couples. These are often expensive events, costing tens of thousands of dollars.

Ironically, so are divorces. When the marriage doesn’t last, you’re spending a ton of money again on lawyers and court fees to dissolve the union. In the past, divorces did not come with parties, though, unlike marriages. Nowadays, that is no longer the case.

People love parties, so when your marriage ends, why not celebrate? To many, a divorce may seem like an odd reason to have a party. However, divorces are often awkward and stressful. Celebrating the event with close friends can be a good way to take the edge off and celebrate a new beginning.

Indeed, a divorce brings about a fresh start, so why not toast the finalization of your divorce? Doing so can help you realize that even though you may not have a “true love” in your life, you do still have people in your life who love you.

The best time to have a divorce party is within a month after receiving your final divorce decree. It doesn’t make sense to have one later on when you’ve already been single for a few years. Have it soon and make sure it’s a positive experience. The goal is to be happy and express your freedom, not be on a downer trip. Here are some tips to plan an awesome post-divorce celebration.

Keep it Small

Unlike a wedding, a post-divorce party should be close and intimate — perhaps 10 people max. Only invite those who have been there for you during your divorce. You should probably avoid your ex’s friends and family members.

Find the Right Location

Do you want to have the party in your home or would you rather have it at a neutral venue? Perhaps you want to take your friends on a vacation or camping trip? The options are endless when it comes to choosing the right divorce party location, but make sure it‘s a place where you can let loose and enjoy yourself.

Keep It Upbeat

Avoid negativity, such as beginning up bad memories or badmouthing the ex. You want to feel empowered, so make it a happy affair. Play upbeat music, share funny memes, watch a funny movie, whatever you can do to lighten the mood.

Don’t Forget the Food

Will the party be a potluck? Will you have it catered? Will you have finger foods and platters? This is your party, so make sure to include your favorite foods. Just be mindful of those with dietary restrictions.

Seek Legal Help

Divorce is often a stressful event. Make it fun by having a party celebrating a fresh start after the end of a rough marriage.
