Once they've signed divorce papers, 20-something-year-old women worldwide are taking ink to a whole other level. They're going under the needle and commemorating their new beginnings by getting tattooed.
Women in their 20s are establishing an empowering worldwide movement of celebratory divorce rituals. These symbolic steps into newly-single life include hosting divorce parties and -- the most popular of all -- trashing their wedding dresses.
Color is the new white! Straying from the customary Queen Victoria inspired "white dress," brides are flocking to Pinterest, Rock N Roll Bride and Green Wedding Shoes for inspiration on how to make their day as vibrant and unique as they are.
More and more brides are opting to take an additional plunge into the unknown after the big day. Trash the dress or "surf the dress" photos are increasingly in demand as a way to keep the celebration going well beyond your wedding day.
Where did we go wrong? Apparently, the concepts of understated elegance, respect for personal property and "less is more" are archaic and trite. These days more is more, and excess is even better than more.
