Can I make coconut cream pie the day before I'll serve it?

I'll be working the day I have people over for dinner. It would help me if I could make the coconut cream pie the day before. Will it weep and get soggy? Should I find another dessert?

No you totally can. If anything make sure the crust is thoroughly cooked maybe a little more than usual. But premaking should be fine

No, it won't weep. To prevent moisture from condensing on the surface of the filling, and also to prevent a skin from forming, press a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto it. Obviously, you'll make your topping (I love piles of whipped cream) just before serving.
