why don't you ask your local postal service or Fedex?

I'm not certain what options you have for sending TO the US, but for sending FROM the US, I would never, ever ship anything FedEx or UPS. Neither options have any services that guarantee that it will not be tipped, shook, turned, etc. Another user posted that USPS offered a service to ship a small cake in a food container that remained upright and monitored the temperature.

 

You should also be prepared to spend a lot of money if this is a decent sized cake. I would estimate at least a few hundred dollars.

The only way I would ever ship a cake, is white glove service, in a cake safe, with clear sides, so that the shippers can SEE that it is a cake, and to not throw it or smash, or throw it. It would be cheaper to hire a baker in the town he is marrying in.

 

I also have to say, if that profile picture is you, you are very beautiful, and if I were the future wife, I would be VERY intimidated that you are friends with my future DH, LOL!!! But then, I always was a jealous woman, lol.

True story. I was a temporary worker at a mail place, typing address labels, for mass mailings, and I could hear some sorters behind me, throwing mail in different Gondolas, and every now and then, I would hear a little box hit the floor, and the contents would shatter. It sounded like a little bell, and it was from some Catholic place that was mailing them. Well, management had the legal right to open a box here and there, to make sure everything was on the up and up, and we weren't shipping illegal items. So, they open one of the boxes that hit the floor, and it was a little ceramic Angel, packed ins Styrofoam, smashed to smithereens.

AYou might be better off contacting a local bakery and having them make the wedding cake. USPS is usually the best choice for shipping, but it might be difficult to find a US Post Office outside the US.

Can you explain what you mean by this?

Make the decorations (gum paste flowers, e.t.c.)  and ship those to be put on a cake made locally.
