I am a new bee and this is my first post 🙂 I have seen loads of Mikaella brides on here and have a question regarding these dresses.
I am in love with 1651 but I have been told in the bridal store that they dont come in white but in most pictures I have seen they look white?? do they look white on the day or more ivory? and does the diamond white look odd against the grooms shirts and flower girls dresses and general white decor?
Sorry for the long post girls, I just love this dress and really had my heart set on white, never considered another colour 🙁

Welcome to the Hive! I didn’t wear Mikaella but you should be able to get a fabric sample from the store, though they may have to order you a sample. Then you can hold it up to things and see if you like it. I have seen plenty of diamond white and it always looks “white” in pics and have never noticed a contrast between the dress and shirts. Maybe you can start a post asking ladies to show their diamond white dress with their guys white shirts. There are tons of diamond white brides on the boards.

My Mikaella dress was called “natural”. It looked much more white than ivory to me.

I think my dress was natural too, but it looked much warmer in person than it did in pictures. It looks very white in the pictures I think, but it’s nearly creamier in person.
Here are a couple of shots to give you an idea. I wore the 1610. One with and one without a flash I think.

Oh, also. my dress was definitely a different colour to my husband’s white shirt. But it does not matter at all in the photos, I have also heard that many people say the ivory or cream shirts for guys are sort of grimey looking. That’s my 2 cents!

I had a mikaella that was “natural” which I think is their “ivory” but it looked like a very light ivory… not at all creamy like the ivory of my friend’s dress.
I would consider it VERY close to white so don’t worry about being heartbroken by not having your dress be “white” as I think this “natural” photographs much better!

Thanks so much for all your replies girls 🙂 Seeing the pictures really help!
@tksjewelry:thats a really good idea I might start a thread going 🙂
I emailed Mikaella and they said the only colour the 1651 comes in is diamond, a lot of the pictures of this dress looks white but as indecisivebride2012 says that could be the flash!
@Indecisivebride2012:I just LOVE your hair in the pics 🙂
@FutureMrsTimmins: your dress looks perfect against the white shirt 🙂
