I have a Square Wedding Cake due in a few weeks, need to get the ribbon soon. What size typically looks best? I was thinking 1.5", or should I go bigger?

I like using 1 1/2 " ribbon.

What is the height of each tier typically? I personally don't like to go over 1/4 of the height, unless it's a tall cake with multiple tiers... and the difference between tiers is 2-3" since that pulls your eye upwards and makes the cake look taller. It's an asthetic's thing and the sizes of everything can really change how your cake looks.

The tiers are typically 5-6" tall
