    I really like #1.  It’s quite whimsical, but I’d almost guarantee #2 is less expensive if that’s a major factor. 

    Don’t mix them though, I think that would be overkill.

    @Mrs_Harmer_to_be:  I love the first cake … It’s gorgeous!  I agree with SapphireSun about mixing them, though … It seems like there would be too much going on if you did that.

    I like them both, but I think #2 will look really cool depending on what kind of lighting you have going in your reception. The sugar crystals have such a cool sparkly/reflective tone to them. I think the ribbon is too large for the cake as pictured, but that’s an easy fix.

    Another option to consider if you like some sort of reflective look to your cake – I am having my cake sprayed with sort of a pearlized finish, which will give it some depth and reflection, but still be a flat look like #1.

    I voted for option 3.  I think it will be perfect, but ONLY if you use the shape of Cake #1 to do it.  The crystals on the top and bottom layers and flowers on the middle layer will not be overkill on a simple, round, tiered cake. However, the added visual detail of having an angled cake, plus those other two elements, would be very distracting.

    #1!  I think cake #2 would be great for a winter wedding though

    Both are pretty but let’s get to the most important information – what flavor will the cake be?
