I am making a wedding cake for next Sunday (August 7th) and I drew them out a sketch. The bride wanted me to incorporate a lotus into the design somehow. I don't think i can do a 3D flower but I was thinking of doing the outline of one and doing two of them, but where should I put them? I was thinking the middle tier which has a logo in the middle which is the Hatchet couple from ICP and I was thinking about putting the flowers on each side. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I think that arrangement sounds nice - a lotus on each side of the logo. Just make sure it's a dark lotus.
You might like to try to make one out of gumpaste or fondant to maybe use as a topper (if they don't have a topper already). It's a fairly easy flower to make, just some long petals cupped up with a textured cone in the middle:

A Juggalo wedding cake, huh? Zounds....

hmmm...not really sure what you are saying about the design. but shouldn't you approve the full design with the Bride before making any decisions? If this is a paid cake you wouldn't want her to be dissatisfied

Maybe try to put it at the side. It will look elegant, but somehow you also need to ask the bride regarding the design..
