Yes the bug thing did cramp the moment. Like we were in the middle of eatting dessert and my bridesmaid's napkin moved...it was little critters under it. We didn't want to spoil everyone's elses meal so we just stopped eatting. The food was good, but I guess because it's so hot in the grill (no air conditioning), it's probably hard to control the pests. The atmosphere itself is nice, but it is real open. Buffet style for the appetizers then you order your main course.
I wish ole I wish we had did our First dance/mother son dance at the restaurant because it was hot as HECK at the gazebo that night. There wasn't much room for the toss in the restaurant but I think we could have done the dance there. We were sweating bullets inside the gazebo. When it was time for everyone to dance, we had to dance outside of the gazebo. I didn't know that about the night time air, never really experienced that before. I know my photographer will have to do major editing to the photos there because of us both sweating so hard. So it wasn't a breaker, because we still had a good time, but if I could have done it differently I would have. Oh make sure if you do the toss at the gazebo to tell them to leave a chair...we didn't have any chairs, so I had to sit on his knee. It would have even been better to do the dancing and stuff during the ceremony (the wind was blowing fierce, but it wasn't nearly as hot.

As for the gazebo, was the heat tolerable or unbeaable. I've been to a # of destination weddings in the Caribbean and the heat can make or break it. Do you know if there are other options for the reception. We intended to have dinner at the Grill and then party at the gazebo.
Thanks for any suggestions.
