<Horrid thought, cause it looks wonderful!> It won't go soggy if we put it in the fridge, will it?

If it's just the meringue (i.e. no cream or anything in it) it will keep better in an airtight box at room temp, AFAIK. If it's got cream in it already, it'll have to be the fridge.

Yes, it does have cream on. We could stand it in a cool room. Does fridge affect it then?

Normally you should keep meringues in an air tight tin lined with greaseproof paper in a larder or other cool place, and put the cream on at the very last minute to prevent sogginess.
