I would love to DIY things for our wedding, but we’re getting married in Georgia and will be living in San Francisco, so anything I make would have to be shippable. What did you destination brides make for your wedding that went well, and what headaches do you wish you had avoided?

It doesn’t have to do with shipping but one of the headaches I had is the trying to DIY in the last couple days before the wedding after arriving to our destination. I would stick to paper goods and hardy things that can’t break. You could DIY gifts for your BMs, your personal accessories, or guestbook. These are items that don’t have to be done in bulk.

I have to ship all my DIYs from Florida (right now) and Colorado (as of next June) back to Michigan. I’m going to ship all my paper goods and other things that aren’t likely to get ruined.
My FMIL is an antique hunter and thrift store queen, so I’m going to give her some money and ask her to pick up things for me back home.

Napkin Rings! made with wire braclett wire and glass beads
Cones out of paper for the flower petals to be thrown at the send-off
Programs- we used fans.. attached the program paper to them and tied a ribbon around them
Trivia cards for the dancing area tables- half had generic wedding triva questions and half had questions about my husband and I.
If you have family or someone (in the place of the wedding) that is willing to store things for you then i would recommend it. We picked out all the centerpieces and other breakable things in the town we got married and stored them at my parent’s house.
