Our wedding colors are mint green and gold, and our theme is french shabby chic. I really want a mint green cake to stay away from the traditional white. What do you guys think of these choices I narrowed down? The baker said the cake will be 6", 10" and 14", so it's not gonna look as vertical as...

What do you guys think of these choices I narrowed down? The baker said the cake will be 6", 10" and 14", so it's not gonna look as vertical as these designs. I really like the first cake, but not sure if it'll look nice in mint green. Help??

    #1 or #3 looks more French shabby chic to me. #2 is on seems more traditional.

    So it looks like #2 is getting the most votes!

    @Erica, FH thinks the 2nd one stands out too, but he likes all.

    I'm now torn between 2 and 3. Like @mrsaj2b said, #2 does look more traditional even though it's green and 3 more shabby chic. Maybe I can do number 3 with cascading white flowers, but instead of the same color dots as the icing, I can do white design/dots like the 2nd one? Whatcha think?
