We are plannng to have red velvet cupcakes (100)for our wedding. My plan would be to make the cupcake 3 weeks in advance, freeze them, then bring them out a week before the wedding, decorate them while frozen with a buttercream icing freeze them in containers. Take the cupcakes out of the freezer a day before the wedding and keep them cool until setting up. Would this work?

Congratulations on your wedding!  If you plan to bake the cupcakes just 3 weeks before the wedding, you can decorate them with buttercream icing at the same time you bake them.  Store them in airtight containers in the freezer, then thaw overnight - keeping them in the containers so that now condensation builds on the cupcakes, ruining your decorations!
