If you'd like to post the picture, we can give opinions as to what height we think they are if the bride is expecting the cake to look the same.

I think 6" is typically the standard for tall tiers. For serving purposes, you might consider using two 3" layers (with a board in between) rather than three 2" layers that may not fit on a plate.
