I’m DIYing in Russia (where my job has taken me) and getting married in London…but I’m American! We have bits and pieces in three different countries at the moment, but we’re making it work…so I know you can do it if you have a car! 

Would you really have to be putting together any of the DIY stuff in a hotel room? Or could you do it before leaving your house? That would help. But even if you can’t, I don’t see a huge problem doing it in a hotel room…as long as you have the necessary supplies and some good friends/family members to help. Go for it!!! It’s totally possible!

My sister just did this for a 3 hour away wedding. It wasn’t bad, we got it there really easily! Just make sure you have some people to help & you will be fine!

@laceburlapbride:  I had a destination wedding and did some DIY stuff it was a little annoying carrying all or the crap over (jamaica) we had less to lug back but i decided not to bring somethings back that I really wanted like my bouqet, top cake tier, etc. If you are doing it in the US and can have ppl help you I say do both. Because doing some DIY things will save you money in the long run
