    I have ordered the Ian Stuart Cabaret in the Taupe colour as typically shown on Ian Stuart Calypso.

    This is the Taupe colour on the Calypso dress:http://www.thebridalcollectionharrogate … %204x6.jpg


    There are pictures of me wearing the Cabaret in the Ian Stuart Brides thread - however it's shown in ivory there as my ordered dress hasn't arrived yet.


    I'm getting married in Florida (Clearwater) and really liked these: http://www.rainbowclub.co.uk/collection … mp;price=1


    I know they're not everyone's cup of tea but I just think they're fab - I need a shoe for the reception/evening do when I get back home though. The heels on the above are 7.5cm (3") - so I need something the same height.


    As you can probably tell by my dress I like something that's a bit different! [​IMG]


    Thanks all, I really appreciate your help! x

    Hi!

    Not going to be much help on the shoes I'm affraid... but I would like to say that that dress is FAB! And I love the colour :)
    My dress has a sash in the "Taupe" colour and after seeing this I am actually tempted to have the whole dress in the colour and the sash lighter...!

    Hope you find some nice shoes!

    Flo xx

    You could go for a real contrasting colour. Do like the dress colour :D

    Thankyou! What do you suggest for a contrast - I'm so rubbish with shades! x

    They're really pretty - maybe just a bit high. I'm going for a 7.5cm or 3 inch heel. My partner is only slightly taller than me, but I still want a bit of a heel.

    Plus now I'm panicking if it will be the same shade of taupe! Honestly! x

    ok its was just a thought, there is another pair on there that may be lower, they have a kind of bow on the front.

    Have you got a fabric swatch? Might be a good idea to take some of the fabric shoe shopping and see what goes best! My initial thought was an antique gold (not too dark though), but it would depend on the shade of taupe.

    My friend had a taupe dress and she had very pale cream accessories with it, which also looked good [​IMG]
