I really hope it clears before your special day, BUT sometimes crazy things make the marriage stronger. For example when we went to check in for our honeymoon, the hotel said our reservation had been given away and we needed to go elsewhere at 2am. That will be 45 years ago this August and we are still happy together.
I wish you all the best.
Shery try not to worry August is still quite a while away. Surely if the beach was a mess the hotel would work with you to maybe do the ceremony on a West Coast beach? It might be worth asking the question if they could do that should the need arise. I would head up to Lonestar on Alleynes Bay if it is weedy, book a table and have it there, perfect setting.
Thank you for your kind words and will def get in touch with the hotel for a plan B
Oh dear as much as I feel sorry for myself it’s the local economy and sea life I really feel so sorry for, tourism and fishing I’m sure play such an important part for island life and the impact will start to be felt soon if not already.

This might help give an idea before traveling.
The Govt has recently (2015) purchased 2 Cherington Beach Cleaners - - They will no doubt also be used as they can clean the beach and not injure the nesting endangered sea turtles as the regular equipment could crush their eggs -
