You couldn’t have missed it even if you wanted to—PDA-obsessed Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Travis Barker (aka Kravis) tied the knot in Italy on Sunday 22 May in what many would say was a wedding to remember. Fully sponsored by the problematic luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana, the weekend-long celebration featured a star-studded guest list which included the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan as well as Barker’s side of the family—duh—and other celebrities such as Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, Blink-182 bandmate Mark Hoppus and even Kendall Jenner’s boyfriend, NBA player Devin Booker.
Despite this impressive lineup, it was one small and unexpected aspect of the ceremony that left the internet stunned: the size of the pasta dish that was served to guests during the party dinner held in Portofino.
Since it took place, we’ve been blessed with various snapshots of the lavish event, but it’s actually thanks to the Kardashian family’s Instagram Stories that we were really given an insight into things. Kylie Jenner gave us commoners a behind-the-scenes look at Kravis’ incredible set-up. But she did even more by showing the world the outrageously tiny portion sizes.
For a wedding that is estimated to have cost several million dollars, it’s understandable that Twitter users couldn’t help but call out the size of the portions at the reception. That being said, a handful of netizens have made a point of explaining that when it comes to eating pasta, Italians are very measurement conscious. Unlike in other countries, having a full plate of pasta is not the way to go and the dish is more often than not served as a starter, not a main course.
Nevertheless, this definitely didn’t stop the rest of the internet to mock the portions nicely displayed on Dolce & Gabbana plates. “There’s a lot about Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding that I’m irrationally upset about… starting with the dress and ending with the pasta portion sizes… Heinous. Criminal. Jail time, your honor,” wrote one Twitter user.
“The pasta portion sizes at Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding yesterday,” shared another user along with Kylie Jenner’s Story. “Personally if a portion isn’t the size of my face I’m not interested,” they added.
One user gave her own take on why the dish seemed so light, “Everyone moaning about the size of the pasta portions at @kourtneykardash’s wedding, Italians have like 10 courses at their celebrations so you can’t eat anything more than that. From experience you almost want to throw up after course 6.”
