Okay so new wedding cake due THIS WEEKEND OMG!!!
They give me this photo and tell me they want to feed 120 people and they want to keep the top tier for themselves.

Whats your suggestions on sizes for the tiers? Should i add a sheet cake as well? Also how do I go about placing flowers on a cake like this??

Ive seen special toppers to put flowers on top of cake but never for the sides...... are they just inserted into the cake etc??

Any help would be much appreciated.
Let me know if the photo works

6/8/10/12 = 134 servings serving the top tier, 120 saving the top tier.

Those flowers are not stuck into the cake. You just carefully lay them on the cake. It would be best if they are organic, but ask the florist supplying them.

Dude, breathe.

To serve 120 I suggest 14, 10, 6 x4" rounds. Serve all 3 tiers then you can make another 6"er . I often b ox it & put it under the cake table making sure I let someone (usually the MOB) know it's there. That should give them 125 servings of 1x2x4.
If you are using 'fresh/real' flowers make sure you put down some plastic wrap or wax paper so they don't touch the cake.
*Never* instert flower stems into the cake. Just lay them on.
