I am trying to figure out how my wedding cake should be, at least shape. I have to figure out at least if its round or square for my venue to hold the silver riser for me. Now I would like if anyone has an idea of what would look best when it comes to only 80 people wedding?
I am having modern touches in my wedding and also my dress and I am more into modern bride than traditional , however, dont like it to be too much. So..I need some opinions here.

@Ka393: I would do a square if you are going a more modern route. My mom had a 3 layer all white cake last year for her 75 person wedding and it turned out really nice. Not overdone at all.

I did a round cake but i also loved the square cakes that were stacked like this pic below! And i love having flowers in-between the tiers !

My baker told me if I have less than 70 guests, I’d only have two tiers! So if you’re worried the cake will be small, I’d do round. Round cakes serve fewer people than square. Also, I’d suggest looking at cake ideas just to see what you like. That may determine what shape your cake will be.

here’s a picture of my mom’s square. They kept the top tier for their anniversary.

I actually ordered both round and square cakes, we are not stacking them. I love the look of square cakes and I don’t think it would be over the top modern.
Just alittle side note about cake: Each layer of cake is actually two layers of cake, to figure a piece they actually cut each “slice” in half creating two pieces of wedding cake (at least for calculations). Keeping this in mind, I ordered extra cake. I personally hate getting a tiny sliver of cake at weddings, so I planned to give those who want cake a real full slice.
