For the shape…I think it’s really just your preference.  I prefer round cakes, so I would choose round if I were you. I also think the softness of a round shape will work better with the vibe (soft, lacy-like details) those cakes give off.

If I am understanding you right, it will have the flat iced-on type flower design plus a few extra sugar flowers like the picture (big orange sugar flower) on the right?  And then you are deciding between sugar and fresh flowers for the large flowers (like the orange flower on the right)? 

If that is true, I would do sugar flowers because it will look better with the iced-on flowers that are part of the cake design.  It will look odd to do a cake with iced on flowers and then add a few real large flowers to it IMO.  I would stick with no real flowers on that type of cake.

I don’t think the shape makes a difference.  As far as the flowers, I am not a fan of real flowers on wedding cakes. Sugar flowers can be pricey because they take a long time to make. But they are so beautiful and edible, worth the splurge for me!

Square usually tends to look more moden, so I’d go with round. There are also neat scalloped designs out there, as well as cakes that have a different shape for every tier.

This pinterest has a lot of those sorts of cakes:

 I’m not fond of square cakes, and like a PP mentioned, the lace detailiing would be better suited to a softer frame 🙂

Agreeing with earlier posts, a round cake feels more vintage. As for sugar flowers, done right they are gorgeous and something that catches peoples attention! If you pick a simple flower, like a rose, it shouldn’t be that expensive to add them.
