    Has anyone been able to reach the WC? I just keep getting referred to the corporate wedding person in Mexico who is no help at all. I would like to ship mt wedding favors and guest gift bags directly to the resort to free up some space in my luggage. Help!

      Are you talking about the Riu? If so, if I remember correctly, the hotel doesn't accept shipments. I'm not 100% sure, but I think someone mentioned that before.

      The WC's name is Chandlyn Edwards & her email addr is: weddings.ori@riu.com. I'm sure she'll let you know what their policy is regarding shipments. She may take a few days to respond but she will get back to you.
      Hope this helps.

          Chandlyn emailed me back and said that it was fine to ship items ahead of time. I askedher how to address the package, so when I hear back from her I will post her response. It seems as if her response depends on her mood at the time!

          $297, wow that's pretty high. Hopefully my items won't weigh that much. I really just want to ship 25 photo albums and 25 parasol umbrellas so that I don't have to take up so much space in my luggage.

            Definitely keep us updated with what she says. I might consider this depending on the cost.

                  I think this is a great idea. Ask your wedding coordinator if you can ship it to him/her directly and they can keep it for you. :)
