Good Morning.  Any Pieces that can fall off and break should be assembled at the venue.  You dont want to risk anything breaking or getting damaged. Especially a wedding cake.Good Luck!

Depending on the sizes of your 4 tiers, that could be quite a heavy cake.  I'd recommend just stacking two (2-two tiered cakes) and then assembling onsite - leave plenty of time for assembly.

i hope you are making the feathers out of an edible medium because real feathers would not be good to place on there

I'd set it up at the venue, or at least the last tier of it. I don't usually travel with anything more than three tiers stacked, to prevent falls and because it will be heavy like @640Cake ‍ said.
