His TWIN is a designer/artist

I love those boys.  I do.  And my fiance's twin brother is taking care of artwork/designs of save the dates/invitations.  We're working on the save the dates but our theme was going to be adventure.  Apparently adventure requires different things to different people, and my fiance and I are disagreeing on how adventure should be expressed.  Partly because his twin keeps suggesting ways to "fix" our ideas for artwork we request from him.


 And those two... ohhh they love coming up with outrageous stuff and justifying it.. and I gave up last night when i was on the phone trying to explain why i didn't want the Pulp magazine cover with the man and woman fighting aliens (with us drawn in as the man and woman instead of the characters originally on the cover) to be the first way we convey our theme.  I told him to just go for it, i wish they weren't aliens, I wish our original idea of using an existing photo of us (the two of us running across a runway at an airport with a plane behind us) was good enough to say "adventure."  But apparently adventure is better with a narrative, and so any image or drawing we use should show a story!   Meaning aliens, I guess.  Does that not look morel ike a sci-fi theme?  I dont know, but I am tempted to just cancel the theme and simplify.. Hey, let's have our colors be our theme and let our favors relate to adventure!  Maybe I won't have gray hair before the wedding. :)

Canooknic, we decided last night to forget the theme, as we had too much conflict over what the theme meant or should look like or how it should be conveyed to the guests.  Anyway, I am disappointed to drop the cool/fun theme, but feeling a lot of relief now that we just have a pretty wedding with just purple and orange to worry about.. Sorry to disappoint!
