Kourtney Kardashian is celebrating her one-year anniversary of designing her wedding dress. If you can recall, Kourtney wore an original Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda lace and satin corset short dress with sweeping veil inspired by 1960s Italian lingerie for her wedding to Travis Barker last year. Flowers and a picture of the Virgin Mary were hand embroidered onto the headdress from the beach resort’s various Mediterranean gardens
She wrote : One year ago, we had our first in-person meeting with @dolcegabbana to start the design process of my wedding dress!! The first inspiration for my dress was when Travis and I were watching Guns N’ Roses November Rain video one night before we were even engaged, and we said to each other “this has to be our wedding.” She was wearing a short dress and I thought to myself “I need a short dress!” I had more visions inspired by some 1990s campaigns of Monica Bellucci shot by Helmut Newton for Blumarine.
When we knew our wedding was going to be in Portofino, it also influenced the vibes and feeling of the dress. I also just wanted to feel like we ran off to Italy and got married and wanted the dress and wedding to feel that way! When @dolcegabbana suggested putting Travis’s head tattoo of the Virgin Mary on the handmade lace veil with the words from his tattoo: family, loyalty, respect underneath, I got chills and knew how special that felt. (And my little mini veil I wore to dinner ☺️)
This was all planned and made into my dream come true all so so quickly and I’m so grateful to everyone who put their all into making it all happen! ✨🏼❤️
The Kardashian also posted a photo dump of her lingerie wedding reception outfit, featuring an all-black lace corset dress with lace opera gloves, over-the-knee sheer socks with lace trim, and towering heels. She also shared concept sketches of both the reception outfit and the corset minidress and embroidered cathedral veil she wore to walk down the aisle.
Kardashian and Barker married in an intimate courthouse ceremony in Santa Barbara and a more lavish affair in Portofino, Italy. Kardashian opted for unconventional bridal fashion, wearing a body-hugging ivory minidress with a gold bleeding heart under the bust. She paired the dress with accessories from Dolce & Gabbana, including a shoulder-length veil, fingerless ruched sheer opera gloves, and oxblood pumps.
