I have to make a wedding cake with minimal decoration because the couple's budget is limited. They want fall leaves. Any ideas?

Using wafer paper and airbrushing on color is the most natural (real) looking leaves one can get.  You could get up to a 1/2 dozen leaves from one sheet.    I'd just make maybe a dozen or 2 leaves and scatter them around.  OR  make a cascade of leaves like this:  http://cdn.cakecentral.com/gallery/2015/03/37WgW8_fall-leaves-wedding_200x200.jpg        http://cdn.cakecentral.com/gallery/2015/02/37Z73c_pollus-red-rose-swag_200x200.jpg

Yes,  the last 3 aren't fall leaves but the design idea is what I was referring to :)
One can also make leaves from gumpaste or fondant somewhat like using wafer paper but I find those heavy and not as real looking.

Look at the cakes above and see if it inspires an "idea" for your cake.  Quite often I will go to my gallery of saved favorites and combine elements from several cakes into "my" cake.

You can also enter the search term into the CakeCentral search box:  autumn leaves

Here's one of my favorite, very elegant, brilliant autumn wedding designs:

Just some inspiration to get the imagination flowing......     :)

for inexpensive -- i'd do something like this where you stripe the bag of buttercream --advance to 2:15

and i put orange, brown, green and red stripes of icing then fill with gold all in one bag -- so pretty so much fun so very inexpensive  and cascade them or whatever -- i'd add tendrils too for contrast -- maybe a couple acorns --

but for a wedding cake i'd have my icing a little stiffer still on the loose side but i'd want the leaves to stand up more

UUUggg just saw those mistakes in my post :(  Don't know how that happened.  If you go to my album you can see some ideas that should have posted in the above.
