The Best Dressed At Elie Saab Jr’s Extravagant Wedding
On the 19th of July, Elie Saab Jr and Christina Mourad tied the knot in a gorgeous three-day wedding event. The luxurious wedding shook up all of Beirut, having been described as one of the biggest weddings in the city. The three-day ceremony was attended by over 1000 guests, including some of the most famous Middle Eastern celebrities such as Elissa, Assi Al Hellani, and Nancy Ajram.
Mourad wore four dresses during the festivities, all designed by her now father-in-law, Elie Saab. At the pre-ceremonial event at Le Plateau de Bakish, she wore a white dress with a plunging neckline paired with a narrow gold belt and a sheer gold abaya.
For the ceremony itself, the bride wore a gorgeous intricate design that was embellished with tiny crystals all over. The skirt was rich in glitter and her gorgeous veil was detailed in glitter as well. The dress alone took 450 hours to complete according to Vogue Arabia.
Mourad had a wardrobe change and dazzled the guests with a beautiful puffy gold gown. The dress had a heart shaped neckline and was embellished by 150 thousand Swarovski strass pieces, Vogue Arabia reports.
Last but not least, Mourad wore an edgy sky blue dress at the sunrise party at Al Faqra club with a high neck and dramatic slit.
Another stunner at the wedding was Claudine Saab, mother of the groom. At the pre-festivities, she wore a royal blue gown and a blue and gold sheer abaya, almost matching her daughter-in-law.
Next, she wore a gorgeous blue gown with a wide gold belt that accentuated her slim figure. Claudine had a wardrobe change and wore a long-sleeved golden dress. Of course, all dresses Claudine wore were her husband’s designs.
Elissa made an appearance at the wedding. In fact, she sang for the bride and groom wearing a lovely light pink dress with a high slit and some intricate shimmery embellishments on the side of her torso.
Salma Abu Deif wore a dazzling high neck emerald green gown by none other than Elie Saab himself.
Karen Wazen’s floral off-the-shoulder dress by Elie Saab as well was phenomenal. The voluminous ruffles added character to the dress.
Nathalie Fanj was certainly a showstopper in her Elie Saab design. The greenish blue dress had unique ruffles all long the neckline and hips and had a high slit that showed Fanj’s beautiful long legs.
