You need to know how many people will be there. Then ou can decide on how much cake to make... Does his wedding have a theme? You could borrow from that. Or you could make a fall themed cake with fall colors and leaves. HTH icon_smile.gif

How about a simple fondant covered round cake with a satin ribbon wrap. You could put fresh flowers on top - the same ones from their wedding. I don't think I'd make a tier cake, just a large round cake seems appropriate for such a gathering. Good luck.

Yes they are going with Fall themed wedding, I was thinking maybe a large round or square with fall leaves and their pic and congratulations on top with maybe a satin bow on the side? What do you think, I will have to find out how many will be there for sure, thanks for your ideas icon_biggrin.gif
