Long car journey with a toddler and a newborn... should I do it?

It's my DB's wedding in just under 2 months time and I'd really love to go. However, it's in Europe (about 20 hours drive away altogether without breaks) or a 2 hour flight with 1-2 hour transfer from the airport.

If we went, it would me, DH, DD who will be 2 and DS who will be 2 months. We've got a DVD player for the car and a lie flat car seat for DS. We'd probably stay for the whole week with a 2 to 3 day car journey there and back. We'd have family there to help look after DC's.

Am I crazy to even think about it or could it be done? I'd be very grateful for any help, opinions or advice, thanks!

I'd do the flight and arrange a transfer from the airport (can family collect you?).

I'd fly too, couldn't bear being in a car that long with DD2 (2.5 yrs). I guess it depends on the children, I'd have thought the baby would be fine though.
