Last-minute pie baking ideas needed!

I'm in a wedding on Saturday, for which it has been requested that I bake a pie. This is great! However, due to bachelor party and rehearsal stuff, I won't have much time on Thursday & Friday to bake, so I was thinking of making a pie tonight.
My initial idea was a key lime pie, but I don't think that custard and meringue would store very well. Apple pie seems prosaic/likely that someone else bakes one, and, well, thought spiral.
1. Will a stored key lime pie be good on Saturday? Could I make the filling & meringue, then bake later?
2. If not, what are some pies that I can bake and store/freeze for a couple days. I'll have an evening to make it tonight and maybe half a day tomorrow for final baking, if need be.
(If anyone suggests a pre-made pie crust or canned pie filling, I will personally ensure you are thrown in a dumpster.)
