Just for fun, help me decide...90mm macro or 85 1.8

My gear first:
D700...D800 asap
16-35 f4
24-120 f4
70-200 2.8 vrII
50 1.4

I have decided to sell my 50 1.4 because I hardly use it since going FX. I figured I would sell it to get an 85 1.8 BUT I am really desiring a macro lens for closeup nature, flowers, and wedding rings. I am thinking about the Tamron 90mm Macro 2.8.

Money is an issue so I can only afford one. The Nikon 85 1.8 or the Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro. They sell for the same price, $500US.

I tend to shoot a bit of everything but I do have a couple wedding shoots coming up. For weddings/events, I usually go between my 24-120 and 70-200.
BTW, I do not shoot for a living.
So whataya think?
