For the cake I'm making this weekend I'm going to cover the tops of each tier with gumpaste flowers, I don't plan on refrigerating the cake after putting them on, but I think the venue for the wedding will. Will this have a effect on the flowers?

I've refrigerated gumpaste that is dry and not fully dry with no problems but do remember that other people had problems with sagging and such.

Depends on the type refrigeration. Dry gumpaste is usually pretty safe in a home refrigerator becuase they are pretty lowin humidity....but commercial coolers are different and are often high humidity....help keep vegetables and such fresh longer. If it's a commercial cooler, be sure to seal your cake in a sturdy cardboard box...this will allow if to be cold but will block much of the humidity from reaching your cake.

Those are usually quite humid...do you have time to do a test? You could box up a flower and ask them to store it overnight in the cooler to see how it affects it.
