Try a practice run well in advance of the wedding, then you'll know exactly what to expect. You can make the cupcakes up to 2 weeks ahead of time. Wrap unfrosted cupcakes well with plastic wrap; freeze. Six hours before frosting, remove from the freezer and loosely cover. Frost, loosely cover and serve within 24 hours.
For a lovely presentation, consider cupcake wrappers from a website like fancyflours.com.
