We're absolutely NOT talking about Zuhair Murad's bridal collections. We're talking about the non-bridal collections, random pieces at various retailers that shout trendsetting bombshell! If you're looking for non-traditional, edgy, or laid back, flowy and comfortable alternative wedding gown options for your amazing day, we're ready to shake things up with Zuhair Murad options for a bohemian bride.
Zuhair Murad is an ICONIC Lebanese fashion designer best known for his exceptional craftsmanship in fashion. His designs are often glimmering and strikingly beautiful but also super expensive! Of course, not all of us can actually afford to have a bridal gown that costs $8,000+. Plus, not every bride likes to be incredibly flashy for her wedding day, right?
However, we see the bohemian wedding dresses in his other collections outside of bridal, cause let’s face it, his bridal is royalty bridal (not at all bohemian), so then I invite you to dig deeper into his collections to find the one unconventional bridal gown that is perfect for you. If you have a deep love and appreciation for his couture pieces like we do, you’ll see they are unique, push the limits of creativity and fashion, and are one-of-a-kind.
But if you cannot invest as much, why would this interest you? We at Bohemian Bride are the experts on finding authentic pieces that make a flattering statement, so we chose cool dresses from his ready-to-wear collection that COST LESS and yet are equally impressive! So ready to be impressed because we are featuring stunning non-traditional wedding dresses bound to awe-inspire you. Oh, and the best part? The gowns below can be delivered within 2 weeks – and if they don’t fit, you can alter them or even return the dress!

A Bit of History
Zuhair Murad was born and raised in Baalbek, Lebanon. From a young age, he had a passion for sketching dresses, and by 1997, he had opened his own atelier in Beirut. A career as a wedding dress designer can be a rewarding and creative profession, but it can also be competitive and demanding. He first gained recognition for his couture designs but later expanded to include ready-to-wear evening wear.
In 2011, Zuhair Murad introduced a line of bridal wear that combines traditional silhouettes with intricate details such as embroidery, beading, ruffles, feathers, and lace.
The unique wedding dresses in his 2022 collection surprised us with square necklines and high collars on gowns made from luxurious fabrics such as silk taffeta and Mikado silk. The collection is designed to celebrate and immortalize the special day of love.
