We really want a tiered cake, round probably. But we will not be having a very big cake as we only have a guest list of 49 right now, plus me, Fiance, and our 3 kids.
Just curious if this will mean we can’t have a tiered cake? I was hoping for three layers.

You can do it, though the actual cakes used will be probably be quite small.

@Statutory Grape: I wonder if it will look funny. Maybe we should just do two layers..

It might look better if you do a round cake, too…the tiers don’t feed as many as square cakes, so you’d be able to do at least two, I think.

We had a 3-tiered cake for 60 people. It’ll be small tiers, and you’ll have some leftovers, but definitely doable.

up to 50 people
6 and 10″ (2 tier)
This is from a baking website. If you want a three tier cake , you can have the bottom layer be real(for cutting), have the second layer be real or styrofoam(you don’t save much money with styrofoam as the expense is in the decorating) and the top real( to freeze for your anniversary).

Our guest list is at 50. We are having a three tier hexagon cake. The baker says it will feed 75 people, but we know it will get eaten. The layers are 6″, 8″, and 10″. Everyone will get to have a little bit bigger peice of cake than normal.

Bigger piece than normal sounds good to me. I love cake!! And since I will be skipping it a lot the next seven months to make sure the dress doesn’t get too tight, I’m sure I will be happy about a little extra cake come the Big Day! lol!
Thanks everyone: I like the round best I think. I might just go bigger to have it be 3 tiers.
I haven’t even considered getting the top tier home to Texas if we go that route! Carry on? LOL! That’s another post entirely I guess, for another day.
