This may sound weird but so far, all the 6-9-12inch tiered cakes I have made look too wide to me.  I really like the look of tall, slightly narrower looking cakes but find it hard to fit into the serving amount the client asks for.  I want to suggest a 8-10-12inch cake to future clients who want 3 tier cakes but then the cake looks unfinished to me without the 6 inch top tier!  And 6-8-10inch cakes are far too small for the wedding clients I have gotten so far.   Does anyone know a way around this or what sizes you usually recommend for 3 tier cakes? Would you recommend having 3 layers of cake within each tier instead of 2 to achieve that? I know it sounds like a useless question to ask but I really want all my cakes to look tall and elegant, not wide :(

I really like the 3" difference.  I did a lot of 6/9/12s and even 6/9/12/15s  the latter serves 185 which is a good wedding size.
