Woman Celebrates Divorce With Dress Burning Photoshoot

A woman who got a divorce decided to set her wedding dress on fire in a photoshoot to celebrate the end of her marriage. She scorched her $1,500 dress and even had her original wedding photographer to capture the last chapter after 10 years together.

The woman said it made her feel free after 4 tough years of marriage. The couple met when she was 16. She said, “I got into the water in my dress so it was really dirty, then started ripping it up. I cracked open a bottle of wine, took it off, and set it on fire. I watched it burn while I drank the wine.” 

The mother of one also carried a canister of gasoline and said it was “very liberating, exciting and empowering.”


You ever have a divorce celebration? 

I definitely had a burning party for my ex. All the wedding photos, random pics with her, stuff she left, I put it in a burning barrel and had a few friends over for a bon fire. It was actually very liberating and therapeutic!
