Are These Tier Sizes Funny?

Cake needs to be for no more than 160-165 ppl, 4 tier fondant covered with fresh flowers on top and on some ledges of the tiers. I'm not sure if the 6 inch will look funny on top of the 8 since all other tiers are 3 inch difference
Sizes are 14, 11, 8, 6. I want to be sure I have enough room for the flowers, that's why I didn't do a 2 inch pan diff.

Thanks

Why not do a 5 inch top tier?

I just wanted to keep the number of servings between 160-165. If I do a 5 inch that will bring the servings down to 156. I don't know of any other 4 tier combo to get that number of servings??

I think it wil look a little odd if you go from 3" diff to a 2" diff on only one tier. Coudl you maybe lift the top tier so that its not flat on the rest of the cake? It wont be noticable then.

I think cakechick means use a seperator you can get some really nice ones either metal or or clear see through ones.
