On Thursday, July 18, everyone came together for the pre-wedding cocktail at Le Plateau de Bakish , in the center of Lebanon known for its Roman and Byzantine ruins. The Oriental-themed party saw guests celebrating through traditional dances. The bride-to-be Mourad was dressed in a stunning ensemble plucked from Elie Saab’s Fall-Winter 2019 couture collection which was inspired by the East, while her makeup was done by Lebanese celebrity makeup-artist Bassam Fattouh. The Blue Sunset Party — said to go on from sunset to sunrise — will take place at the Saab Residence in Faqra on July 20.
