    Before reading your post I looked straight at the picture and thought “ohh i love fall weddings”

    So yes, they seem quite fall.

    Anyway you can maybe paint the leaf green?

    @dovelovesfalcon: I think they look awesome.  I highly doubt that anyone at your actual wedding will think, “Pshaw, this wedding could have been perfect except for those fall-looking bouts…”  Ya know?  They look cool and rustic to me.

    I would paint the leaves green and maybe paint the “berries” as white, to freshen it up…

    I like the idea of a peach like leaf or even green.  But I also think they look great the way they are.  Great job!!!

    Do they look very fallish? Yes.

    Does it matter? Nope!

    They look great and you both love them so keep them!!! Or modify, if you want.

    Agree that they do seem fall-ish, and also agree that a little bit of paint will totally lighten them up. They look great!

    it’s a bit fall-ish but they are also very rustic-looking! good job with them, i think they turned out really well! i think it also really depends on the flowers u are having, the color and theme, etc. 😉 overall i like them the way they are.

    @tranquility:  I thought the same thing. Don’t get me wrong, they are really cute, but they also really scream fall wedding to me.
