If you use the Wilton Buttercream Class Icing and beat in softened cream cheese-it will work. Remember food safety-sits out less than 4 hours. Keep refrigerated until celebration begins.

I personally can't stand the wilton buttercream. I use cream cheese in my buttercream with real butter and powdered sugar. It's the same recipe the bakery I worked for used for all their cakes. The powdered sugar acts as a preservative. I've had cakes sit out for hours and it's fine. All the bakery's wedding cakes also sat out for long periods of time. As long as it's not in a hot room (gets too soft), you should be good.
