When I read your post title, I figured you meant decor for the reception! I was going to say that I recently went to a wedding that was mostly red/black. They had black table cloths, black and white damask table runners, and branch centerpieces with red roses and purple/green assorted flowers. The bridesmaids wore a burgundy/plum colored dress (forget the flowers) and the bride had red roses, red lips, and red nails with her white gown.


Are you thinking to use red flower bouquets with the bridesmaids? If yes, I would suggest black dresses and black shoes, then the flowers will really pop. Are the girls’ dresses long or short? If they are long, you won’t see their shoes anyway. If they are short – you can have them wear any type of black shoe (maybe give a guideline which is what I did for my girls – nude heels) and they can possibly wear something they have or want to buy instead of all getting the same shoes that they might not like or might not be comfortable. 


Sounds good, though. You should google images you like and put them together to see if you like them together! 🙂 Then post here!!
