Join me down the rabbit hole… (Picture: Backgrid/mytheresa.com/rixo.co.uk)

Ever since Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker got married over the weekend, the bride’s small dress has set my imagination aflame.

She obviously isn’t the first to wear a short dress for her wedding (it would be a crime if I didn’t remind everyone how absolutely adorable Lily Allen looked at her Vegas wedding to David Harbour), but Kourtney’s lingerie-inspired Dolce & Gabbana lace and satin corset mini dress – paired with that stunning intricate veil – has awakened something within me.

It proves that you can cut your hemline without going short on drama.

Previously, my personal tastes skewed more towards slinky floor-length gowns. But now, suddenly, the thought of getting married in a flirty little mini dress sounds downright dreamy.

You could even do a little outfit change into a mini dress for the evening do, to get the best of both worlds.

The possibilities are endless.

With the likes of Sharon Tate, Audrey Hepburn and Cindy Crawford having gone the short route before, I’m only embarrassed it’s taken me this long to fall down a mini wedding dress rabbit hole.
