I know everyone has thier own serving size I have been asked to do a wedding cake for a friend she requested it to be 3 tiers for 60 people, I thought of doing a 6,8 and 10 for the tiers...is this enough?? by wiltons guide it seems to be that i can find anyway i'm just going by the 1x2x4". I just rented a book from the library and its serving size chart said it would only serve about 40 but did say it was more generous servings....is what i had planned enough??? please someone help????
1"x2"x4" (or 8 cubic inches) is the standard serving size for wedding cakes. You can always ask the bride what size she would prefer if you are unsure and adjust price and ingredients accordingly
the bride really has no idea what she wants and doesn't care what the sizes are, i am having a hard time explaining things to her and getting an idea of what she even wants as far as decoration lol, i thought someone with exerience with wedding cakes could give me some insight I have seen different ways to cut a cake and the wilton serves 60 the other way serves 80 (without cutting a circle in the cake to slice pieces)

It's more than enough. The 10 and 8 serve 62, and the 6 serves 12 for a total of 74.
