Yes! I can confirm, Divorce Parties are definitely a thing and are fast becoming more and more popular… and they ARE happening in Canberra, more often than you’d think.
Even though divorce isn’t ideal, (although maybe completely necessary) celebrating the finalization of the process seems to be worth doing. I have attended a few of these celebrations and in my experience they can be more fun that Hen’s Parties and in fact, have been for the most part.
I personally have no experience whatsoever in divorce as I am not married and I was fortunate enough to have parents with a successful marriage. But what I have worked out when it comes to celebrating the end of a divorce or should I say, marriage, from spending time with the people who hold these events, is that;
The way I see it, we should take the opportunity to celebrate such a time like we do with the opposing force, marriage. The event will represent an end of an era where you can be with the ones that have been supporting you the whole way through and together you can lift each other up and commence the next chapter.
Just like Hen’s Parties and Birthday Parties, Divorce parties can look different to everyone so I would suggest getting together with the girls to figure out what you want to do. For some, it may be a quiet weekend getaway. For other it may be the wildest, naughtiest party you’ve ever attended.
If you’re part of the latter, then I suggest you read another blog that I wrote about one a wild Divorce Party that I attended in the past. www.DesireEntertainment.com.au/The-Party-Of-40-8.
For those that sit within the spectrum somewhere, here are some Divorce Party Ideas that can be integrated into your event that aren’t location specific, to hopefully give you some inspiration:
Hire a ‘Man of Desire’:
If you don’t already know what we do, you might want to look through the rest of the website. Having said that, many people have never experienced a Male Strip Show, a Topless Waiter or have even attended a Nude Life Drawing Class.
I can guarentee that you will have a great time when you #HireDesire The Men of Desire are the most professional people in the industry, they’re are all damn hot and are all great guys (if I don’t say so myself). Feel free to fact check this by reading our Google Reviews.
Without giving too much away, what I can tell you is that having one of the Men of Desire at your event will make you night unforgettable. Feel free to have a look at our gallery to get a better idea, if you want more. 😉
Trash your wedding dress:
Being the end of an era, it be only necessary that you sacrifice that which you held onto for so long for no reason at all… as it turns out.
Let’s have you put it on for the final time why your closest friends that have supported you the whole way, shall we say “decorate” your wedding dress with paint, mud or even scissors. However you want really, given the right setting and appropriate safety precautions.
Dart the old photos:
Imagine well into the future, you stumble across some old photos of you and your previous, and you sit there wondering why you even still have them, let alone what made you choose to go down that path in the first place. Let’s plan for this day shall we.
It’s much better to be proactive with matters such as these so you need to pin them to a dart board and throw darts at them… obviously.
You could even spice it up and make it into a game by putting the photos on balloons that are attached to a dartboard that are actually filled with presents or maybe even tasks for the dart thrower to complete. How fun!!!
Familiar faced piñata:
This one obviously doesn’t need much explaining as it’s pretty straight forward. This one may be good for those who have some pent up rage or need to alleviate some frustration. Having said that, I’m sure even the happiest people in the best situations love to hit a piñata.
Start a Dating App profile:
What better way to be introduced to the modern day dating game than have your friends whip you up a brand new profile on one the very commonly used dating apps that almost all single people seem to be using these days. Whether you decide between Tinder, Bumble or Hinge (the list goes on), it’s a fun and harmless way to see what’s out there and who knows, maybe even re-enter the dating scene.
These are just some examples of fun ideas that can be incorporated into your event. I haven’t even touched on the possibilities of beautiful locations for getaway weekends and group activities you could be doing but I’m sure you will figure out what will work best for you and your group.
People are our business and Happiness is our game!!!
