    I vote purple.  I think it gives a more romatic sophisticated look.  The pink, although pretty, makes me think of candyland.

    I voted pink.  I think whatever you choose, both are very pretty, but pink looks more romantic to me, whereas the purple looks more like a nightclub.

    I would go with purple. I agree with the PP, that pink photo looks like a kid’s party.

    I like really soft pink; I think the right shade can be very sophisticated.

    We’re going with blue as it fits in with our colors better.

    To be honest I think the purple and fuchsia colors look too harsh to me; uplighting is supposed to be more like ambient, mood lighting.

    All of these inspiration photos look a bit monochromatic so if you have other colors involved remember that they will help break up the monotony of the look.

    I like the purple! Pink reminds me of a wedding reception in a pepto bismol bottle. Sounds like you like purple too 🙂

    The pink looks too girly to me, so I vote purple.

    I’m a huge fan of pink (it’s my main color!) and here I voted pink. It depends on the look you’re going for? The pink creates a soft romantic feel (unless its hot pink!) and I think the purple looks more upbeat nad fun, like a club. I think it’s all in the mood you’re going for!
