Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s much-anticipated wedding special may have fallen flat, according to critics. The couple, who got married in a luxurious Italian village, had a lot to live up to considering the success of the Kardashian family’s previous wedding specials. However, the one-episode feature failed to deliver, leaving viewers feeling short-changed.

One of the major issues with the special was that it tried to cram footage from three separate ceremonies into just 74 minutes of airtime. The weddings, which took place weeks apart, left viewers feeling like they missed out on important details, and the excessive family commentary and confessionals didn’t help matters either.
Comparisons were made to Khloé Kardashian’s wedding to Lamar Odom, which managed to pack in a nine-day race to throw a lavish wedding and all the family drama that came with it into a single episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (KUWTK). Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian’s weddings to both Kris Humphries and Kanye West were given multi-episode arcs, covering the highs and lows of throwing a celebrity wedding.

Kim and Khloé’s weddings were major events, with viewers eagerly tuning in to watch every moment. Kourtney’s wedding special, on the other hand, felt like an afterthought. Critics have suggested that the rushed editing and lack of attention to detail may have been due to the fact that the couple had originally intended to keep their wedding private and only decided to make it a special after the fact.
Despite the lackluster reception to their wedding special, Kourtney and Travis seem to be enjoying their newlywed status. The couple, who had been dating for less than a year before tying the knot, have been sharing romantic photos and videos on social media, giving fans a glimpse into their happy life together.
It remains to be seen whether Kourtney and Travis’ marriage will last, given the Kardashian family’s track record when it comes to sustaining their marriages. However, for now, the newlyweds are basking in the glow of their lavish Italian wedding and enjoying their newfound love.
