You can stick with the traditional: the column pillared cake. It still looks amazing and you can decorate it with flowers around the tiers or in cascade and you can have fresh flowers or edible, according to how you like it. Usually, the cake has three or four tiers, but for a higher cost you can go for more. If you want to cut the costs of the cake, you can have all tiers real and the top one can be fake, made out of Styrofoam. You can also use decorations on top, instead of the last tier and have a bunch of flowers placed on the plate.
The stacked wedding cake is also common and it means that the rest of the tiers are placed directly on each other, no space in between. These are usually round, but you can choose oval or square tiers for a more exquisite look. You can decorate the cake however you like it; using stripes and circles or traditional flowers. You can get creative, as some couples choose to decorate their cakes with their initials and everything surrounded in the selected wedding colors.
Another style is the cascade stand cake; each cake is designed to stand on its own pedestal. This style offers many options to display as you can place the cakes anywhere on the cake table. You can choose a tall pedestal and gradually move down the table to a very short one. There are limitless options and you can see online a lot of pictures to get inspired by some of the most beautiful designs. If you consider yourself as being artistic, you can use the wedding cake as your own reflection. You can choose a custom wedding shop that will create exactly the kind of cake you want, even themed cake or with crazy decorations and flavors. Some cakes have been designed to look like baseball stadiums, like pillows, castles and anything that goes through your mind.
