Pink/Purple/Fuschia – cohesive enough to work.  Gray with pinks/purples – always pretty (a light, silvery gray, or a mid-tone gray?)  Green/turquoise accents – great with fuschia.  Just decide on a dominant color (gray or fuschia), and the rest should follow naturally.  (For me – bridesmaids’ dresses are the dominant color.  Maybe a sash of the secondary.)

I would say green, but then green is my favorite color.

I would ask your groom about fuschia vests for the guys.  My SIL put her guys in pink ties/vests – expressly so she could humiliate them.  If your guy is comfortable with it, fine.  Otherwise, you might want to work out a compromise.

One thing that could help is looking up fuschia wedding elements, picking what you like, and making your own inspiration board (can be easily done in Powerpoint.)  If you find you like pewter candelabras with fuschia votives and green/aqua ribbons at the base, make those your centerpieces.  If you find you like topiaries, use those…  I personally couldn’t find any centerpieces I liked, so I worked from the ground up.  Garden wedding, fun, and budget.  Butcher paper tablecloths, crayons, board games…  Then decorations – terracotta pots as candleholders, with the bottom portion painted navy blue, and (idea from a Bee) framed drawings.  (I have training both as an illustrator and a calligrapher, and my Boyfriend or Best Friend is obsessed with sci-fi and comic books, so I’ll be drawing us as various characters.  Dr. and Rose, Leonard and Penny, our WoW characters, our cats…) 

It may help in getting quicker responses if you separate your questions by category.  Such as, I’m good with color, but know nothing technical on dresses.
