We are getting a 3-tiered cake for $400 (feeds 80-100).  Stolen inspiration from another bee (though I’d do mine in ivory/neutral or cascading yellows, since our colors are yellow, purple and gray):

@converse_bride:  My inspiration picture is/was pretty similar to ours! My tip would be to make sure they use fondant, because ours tried to recreate it using buttercream, and I was disappointed it didn’t look more like the pic I gave her. But this was our inspiration!

@Wonderstruck:  Gorgeous cake!  Unfortunately we really don’t want fondant (for cost + taste reasons) so we are married to buttercream.  I’m really into texture and saw something like this that was done with buttercream:
