Designer Profile: Zuhair Murad

Zuhair Murad is a designer that is all around amazing, he not only is an amazing bridal designer but his ready to wear and couture collections are outstanding as well! He started designing in 1997, starting small and building a private client group first! Although he had always been interested in designing, as a child he recalled never letting a pen leave his hand because he always wanted to draw and explore designs! Zuhair showed his first couture designs at Haute Couture week in Paris in 2001, this gave him international coverage and more media spreading!! In 2005 Zuhair designed and showed his first ready to wear collection, it was to further expand his client base, the designs were simple yet aesthetically glamorous.

In 2012 Zuhair Murad moved his fashion house to an 11 story building in Gemmayze, in the hear of Beirut, this is not only offices but also houses some key designers, pattern makers, tailors and embroidery experts. In 2014 he finally incorporated the bridal section into his fashion house, this is where the wedding gowns are sold and displayed. Now bringing us to 2015 he has another office in Paris, that screams his style!!

The 2017 bridal collection caught my eye when I was looking through designers, the collection is stunning and has a ton of character! The lace and embroidery work on these are amazing and shows the skill of this brand! The colours are classic and amazing with the pearly white and off white. Truly amazing and a great idea of whats to come in 2017 bridal!

Wedding trends you wouldn't expect!!

Taking a look at some of the recent trends for weddings that you would never expect are amazing and truly breath taking, some are things that you would have thought more people would love by now!

Two piece dresses, they are great for brides who want two dresses to get married in the traditional dress, and then for the reception they can take the long dress off and get a shorter dress to dance and have a good time in at the reception! Its the best of both worlds! Or maybe you just cant decide on a fit, so you can have both a ballgown dress and a mermaid all in one! Its just perfect!

A super awesome trend that you wouldn't really expect but think it would be a good idea, would be to have a live choir at your wedding! There is great idea to get the feeling of love and passion at your wedding! Especially a contemporary choir, they are great and will definitely put soul into the song that they are singing!

Most people lately are really interested in having their guests get involved in their wedding, there is a perfect way that is fun and exciting for everyone involved! Late night karaoke is the best! its fun to see who's good and not so great at singing and making the night fun and filled with laughs!

The traditional thing to end off a reception off right is with the cake cutting and some more sweet treats, recently in 2016 they have noticed that there is a growth in the couples wanting something different and more modern; most people have opted for cupcakes for individual people or event catching on to the recent donut trend, what else but donuts!! I believe that any sweet treat is a great way to end the night or add on to something amazing already!

Food inspired florals have been trending for a little bit now, these are one of the trends that I'm not sure about! Flowers are amazing, but complimenting them with fruits and vegetables can look nice sometimes, but when you just make an arrangement out of vegetables thats a special look that maybe someone would specifically want at their wedding; maybe not for everyone! (LOL)

I think stylish grooms are coming more and more into mainstream, they are finding their own voices and it is amazing! They do not just conform to what the bride wants them to wear anymore or what is most really available to them! They can seek for a coloured suit, maybe brown or dark blue, they can even switch it up and wear something that is white to match and make themselves stand out like a bride in all white!

All of these trends are amazing in their own ways! they all are inventive and have new ideas, they are taking it on as a trend and making it big to have the things at your wedding theses days! 2016 is the year of amazing individuality, lets keep it up!!
