Depends on cake serving size, and whether the client wants a 'big' looking cake. If size isn't an issue, go with smaller tiers. If size IS an issue, suggest a fake cake tier (styro).

a 10" square will feed 50 alone.

I suggest the following
8" = 32
6" = 18
4" = 8

total servings 58

For the 4" just bake one more layer of 8" then cut it into quarters, you have two cake for a 4" tier and then two extra's for you!

Sometimes if you want more "wow" factor and the number of servings is small, use a dummy for the bottom tier and the two upper tiers as real cake!
