How/when do you meet up w/ the WC?

Recommended Posts

So I'm leaving on Friday (yay!) the wedding is next Tuesday. How/when do I meet up with the Riu WC once we arrive at the hotel? Does she contact me or do I need to try to get ahold of her?


I'm freaking out about all these little things right now because it is getting so close!


Like, what if they don't let me put my dress in the closet on the plane? Will it fit in the overhead compartment? It's not that big but it's not small either. Will I have to carry it in my lap?

I emailed my WC the week before I left to set up a meeting with her. I don't know about the WC at RIU Negril, but the WC at ROR was a little hard to track down. I definately did not feel that she cared about our wedding at all.


I was planning on putting my dress in the closet on the plane, but when I got there they said they didn't have one. We ended up putting it in the overhead compartment. My dress was pretty puffy, but it fit, your's should fit too. I brought a steamer with to steam it once we got there and that worked great.


Good Luck!

I have an appointment to meet with the wedding coordinator on the Monday before my wedding at 10:00am. My wedding is Feb 24. I just set up a time via email. Just email her and set it up prior to leaving.

Thanks girls!


I've been in contact w/ the WC for a few months via email, but I never thought to ask her about when we'll be meeting, DUH!!


I sent her an email yesterday, she returned the email asking when we fly in. Hopefully I'll hear back from her before we leave for the airport tomorrow. Otherwise, I'll just have to try to track her down at the resort sad.gif

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
