All Paloma Blanca/Mikaella Brides Post Here :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I wanted to get a thread going for my favorite designer...

I chose Paloma Blanca because of how I felt in her dresses and because of the fabric! The Dupioni Silk is so light weight compared to so many Satin dresses I tried on. I really could where my dress everyday and the touch of lace to the bodice was just the touch I wanted for a vintage feel to go with my personality :) I can't believe I was one of those girls that chose the first dress she tried on after many Bridal experiences with friends. (Though on the hanger I wasn't impressed... it was perfect on. I chose Paloma Blanca #3802 in the Natural color, but had it down to a Paloma and Mikaella for my final choice. Here are a few pics from the dress shop and my actual dress I purchased. I cant wait to see what other Paloma/Mikaella Styles are out there!!!

Hello Ashlynn039,
Mikaella is Paloma Blanca's Sister company. The dress shop that I tried on my Paloma did not advertise that they carried Mikaella Bridal, but had Mikaella dresses to try on, so I would hope that if a salon carries Paloma they have a few Mikaella dresses or could at least order one for you. Just give a call to any salons in your area that carry Paloma Blanca, hopefully they could help you :).
The Paloma dresses that I tried on were a bit more cost wise ($300-500) than the Mikaella's but not do to quality of design or of the gown, but the type of fabric that was used. The fabric that is used in most of the Paloma Gowns is the raw Duiponi Silk which is so light weight you feel like you are wearing a cloud :)!! Good Luck and I hope you can find your Mikaella Gown!!!

Hey Roxy!! I have a Paloma dress too, I bought one too - mine is so simple, but I think it really fits and flatters me well. I don't have any good pictures on my computer, mine is in the dress shop now, I'm waiting to get it altered - can't wait to see it when it fits me perfectly. The Mikaella line makes almost the identical dress to the Paloma one I purchased (Style 3906). I will try to post a link to the post I put of me in my dress on the "Show us your wedding dress" thread....

 

Oh - question, what are you doing for jewelery? I can't decide what to wear...I have a very sparkly necklace but I am unsure if it's me...I picked it because I wanted some more "wow" factor (my dress has no beading, and a deep sweetheart)...i can't decide!!

Too Funny!! I am having the same issue :), I have worn the same necklace for 4 years, a simple sterling silver chain with Heart Pendant... so I am not a flashy jewelery person, more of a shoe person :). I love to lace bodice part of my dress and have considered not wearing a necklace, but wearing a pearl bracelet... I just cant decide! My shoes are a bit flashy so I am leaning more towards the bracelet and no necklace, but if I find something I love and is me, I wont rule it out...
Lots of luck in finding something you love!!!!!

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
