Woman Celebrated Her Divorce By Setting Her Wedding Dress On Fire.
No one can tell you how to get over a break-up. As long as you are not hurting yourself or your ex; just about anything goes. It's natural to want closure whether it's by having a final conversation to find out what went wrong, go on a trip alone, or get a new haircut. It's all part of the healing process.
But not everyone comes to terms to the conclusion of a partnership in the same way. Katlynn McKee had her own unique way to say goodbye to the past, not with a bang but with a fire.
Katlynn McKee got married in a stunning $1,500 wedding gown five years ago.
The dress may have been gorgeous but the relationship was not. After four years as husband and wife, McKee and her ex decided to part ways.
"My relationship wasn't a good one, so it was a relief to finally be free," says the 25-year-old. "We'd been together since I was 16 and married for four years. We grew apart."
McKee looked online for inspirations to trash her dress but she wanted her experience to be original.
"I did a bit of research but all the ideas were my own and it was exactly the way I wanted to do it," the hairdresser reveals.
For McKee it was a way to close that chapter in her life. She hired her wedding photographer once again for the momentous occasion.
"We went out to this little area with mud and water, and I had a bottle of wine and a gas canister in a basket," says McKee who is also mom to a six-year-old girl.
This divorcee didn't have to worry about getting her dress dirty, that was part of the goal all along.
"I got into the water in my dress so it was really dirty, then started ripping it up," she says.
McKee admits she told her ex about her plans. He loved the idea and even offered to join in the photo shoot.
