Ahh.  I know this is gonna sound lame, but if she wants four cakes, let her have four cakes.  This is a battle not worth waging!

Have your own (main) cake with your wedding topper. Then honor your mom, grandmother and fiance’s mom with smaller cakes using their toppers. I agree with Krissycake the battle is not worth it!

Couldn’t you have a four tiered cake with the toppers on each tier?  Just offset the tiers, either in stair-step fashion, or right to left.  (I wish I had a picture of what I’m imagining).  Anyway, cost of cake has a lot to do with how many people are invited and how many people the cakes will be expected to serve.  So even if you only do one cake and one topper, it may cost just as much as four cakes.

Maybe you could compromise by having one cake (with your topper) and a display of sorts on the cake table with the other three toppers? Maybe with little signs that say the name of each couple and their wedding date?

You could also consider placing them on fake cakes (4 cakes is a LOT of cake! How many people are you having?!), like frosted styrofoam, which would likely be cheaper than actual additional cakes – ask your baker if s/he can do that for you.
