Nicole Nieser, 36, wasn’t about to let her recent divorce get her down. Instead of wallowing in her lost love, the mom of three threw herself the ultimate divorce party and, in the end, learned that she still has plenty of love left in her life—the love shared between herself and her truly awesome friends.
Nieser, a native of Saskatchewan, Canada, was married for 13 years before receiving a letter in the mail saying her divorce would be finalized on December 16, and she decided she wasn’t going to spend that day alone.
“I did a little Pinteresting and Googling and I said, ‘I should have a divorce party,’” Niesner explained in an interview with Inside Edition. “My friend just said, ‘You know what, I am going to take care of it. Just be home at 6:30.’” And Nieser’s squad seriously pulled through!
When Niesner’s friends arrived on the big night, “They all had bags and boxes of wedding dresses,” said the woman of the hour. “I dug mine out of the basement and we all got dressed up. It was a blast.”
Niesner added, “[We] kept it really positive, drank some wine, ate some food. [The wedding dresses] were on most of the time. Everybody was really digging that.”
Niesner and her friends posted shots of the fun night on their social media feeds, sharing the adorable comparison between their girl group and Rachel, Monica, and Pheobe. “I have the best mom friends!” Niesner captioned one of the shots, adding the hashtags #fromMrstoMs, #happilyneverafter, and #mightaswellcelebrate. And celebrate they surely did!
Though Niesner packed up her dress at the end of the night, she didn’t throw it away.
“You never know when someone else is going have a divorce party,” she said.
