Another Fashion Request

So there's this wedding C and I are going to the beginning of August.  My original plan to make myself a dress was foiled when I realized the fabrics I found online, I didn't like in person (I had ordered swatches to be on the safe side).  Plus, I decided it wasn't worth the time and frustration to make a dress when I could find a fairly inexpensive alternative.

I haven't even attempted to head out and look around town to see what's available yet.  But my shopping choices around here are typically limited.

Here's a link to the dress I like.  (You can see more views of the dress through the website.)

These are the 2 colors I'm torn between.  Toronto blue and fuschia rose:





I found out that the bridesmaids are in "royal purple" and the groomsmen (ie. my husband) will be in a purple vest and tie.  Which do you think is the better choice for me?

I like the blue better than the fuschia... that is of course just my opinion :)

Are you definitely not making it? Hang on, I have to good royal purple I'm assuming it's more blue than pink but a fashion diva I am not.

Oooo...royal purple is very aristocratic! Fancy! I'd go blue. Pink and you might look like you belong at an 80's prom. Can Cris' hair grow out enough to go Flock of Seagulls? It could be fun. : )

Definitely blue. With your eyes, skin tone and hair blue would be gorgeous!
