With the recent news of Kourtney Kardashian getting hitched to Travis Barker (for the third time), the couple has not only inspired us to plan our nuptials in the Amalfi coast, but also to go for a somewhat unconventional dress code. Every girl pictures herself in a poofy, white ballgown walking down the aisle one day. But not Kourtney Kardashian. Then again, when did a Kardashian ever stick to dress codes (or tradition)? Kourtney walked down her very own red carpet to say ‘I do’ to her beau, in a white mini Dolce&Gabbana custom dress. The Italian luxury brand did a little more than just dress the bride; they also hosted the entire reception.

Kourtney’s mini wedding dress was inspired by Italian lingerie from the 1960s, the look consisted of a satin corset top with lace details at the top, along with a floral-patterned lace skirt. She paired the look with long tulle gloves, lace pumps and a long trailing lace embroidered veil that was the centre of attention.
