Thanks everyone for the responses, this is great perspective on both saving it and not saving it. Seems like it is certainly doable but proper wrapping is key. I’ll ask my baker for her perspective as well. Thanks again!

We did and it still tasted delicious. But I wouldn’t say it was worth any extra cost.

We planned to…our venue *lost* it. But they gave us a complimentary plate of finger sandwiches.

We did! Well, technically my mom took it home and froze it for us since we left for the honeymoon the next day. She googled tips for freezing wedding cake. In addition to the layers of plastic wrap and foil suggested, first she put it straight in the freezer for (I believe) a couple of hours so that the frosting would harden up and the plastic wrap wouldn’t stick to it.
Also a good idea to google the best way to defrost it! I believe we moved ours to the fridge for 24 hours and then left it on the counter at room temp for a few hours after that. It was delicious and tasted exactly the same as I remembered it from the wedding!

They sent us home with the top tier as they never cut into it. We ate it over the course of the week as we didn’t leave right away for our honeymoon. Our baker included a new top tier replica 1st anniversary cake with our package. We just called up a few weeks before we wanted it. When we picked it up, it came with the design specs sheet from our consultation so we can have them or anyone recreate our design in the future. Will prolly have them recreate it this fall for our next anniversary as we haven’t gotten a cake from that bakery in a while as it’s about an hour away from where we live now.

lol I somehow didn’t know this was a thing and gave any extra cake/ desserts away to anyone who wanted it. We didn’t have a fancy cake, just a sheet cake, but my husband still thought we’d save some to freeze and he asked me about it the following day. lol I just looked him straight in the eye and told him that it’s always been the husband’s role to set aside the wedding cake to be frozen, all the wedding etiquette books say so Since he’s never read a wedding etiquette book in his life, I got a skeptical raised eyebrow but he couldn’t refute this
