Do you have a personal (non-Marriott) coordinator? Our coordinator moved all of the gifts for us. If you want it sent up to your room, just have the hotel send you a bellhop with the trolley and he can stack up all the gifts for you. then you can have your coordinator accompany him up.

Otherwise, doing it in the last 15 minutes of cocktail hour (and making it back in time for the grand entrance) is fine. You can designate a good friend to accompany the bellhop up and between the two (or three people – if you get a pair of friends to help) it will be done quickly.

We actually didn’t get many gifts that day anyway. Most people did envelopes or ordered them online to be shipped to our house.

I agree with the previous poster. If you have a good friend borrow a cart 5 or so minuets before cocktail hour ends they should be able to get things stacked up and just leave the cart with the gifts all together in your room and run down to see the first dance. Keep in mind that if people are moving from cocktail hour to the reception room it is going to take guests a few minuets to get situated anyways. Missing 5 min of cocktails and a few of the akward transition minuets will probably be fine with whoever is helping out
