I am doing a wedding cake and they want the cake all done in buttercream swags. On the pic, there are the zigzag swags. What tip does everyone use for this? Also if they have any other tips or ideas for the swags please let me know. All my wedding cakes are usually plain so this is going to be a challenge for me!!

You can use any star tip for zig zag swags. Try some out to see what look you like. Using a tip #86 or #87 makes a very pretty ruffle swag.

Most of the time I use tip 16 for that technique.
86/87 is also nice but does give a different look.
