If your photographer is staying for the reception-yes. If they are only photographing your ceremony, then no.

Also, what is everyone doing for their guestbook? I don't want to do a normal book for people to sign and I'm trying to think of something different.
Yes, there is a charge for the white sheers. The best thing going was the "exotic gazebo", $220 included 2 white sheers, and two large flower bouquets which can hang on the gazebo, be placed on tables, etc. And if the WC in Miami tell you it will be the candy wrapped look, like in the picture, just ignore them. The WC on site will hang the sheers anyway you want.
For guestbook, we had a whiteboard and asked guests to write their wishes on the board and then take a picture. We will (when we have time) put all the photos together into one of those photobooks.

Our current time is 6 pm Wedding 7 pm Reception
Should we move to 5 pm Wedding and 7 pm Reception?
Are you doing a sunset ceremony? Otherwise, you may want to check the sunset times, since it will likely be dark shortly after your ceremony. Check with the photographer how and when the best time for some photos would be. I would suggest at least an hour between, so my vote would be 5pm/7pm.

Thanks for the feedback about the curfew thing....I know our company will want to party into the night so I was even thinking of renting out one of the ballrooms for a few hours after Zavaz plaza to have a midnight buffet and dance up there. But I guess just chilling out at the mojito lounge would be chill too. I was just at the sensatori 2 weeks ago and I LOVED the swinging beds in the coffee lounge. Any suggestions on what I should do? Move the party upstairs to the hall or just kinda let people do their own thing (mojito lounge, coffee bar, etc)?
Any suggestions (from anyone) would be greatly appreciated!! thanks!
We liked the option of people doing what they wanted. So after dinner was done, if they wanted to party with us they did, but many were tired and headed to bed. It will likely be a lot of money to rent the ballroom for later, maybe just plan for the Mojioto bar. We didn't really have a plan and after the reception was done everyone loved the 'coffee hut' area, mind you our family are all huge musicians, so we had a sing-a-long with guitars, bongos, etc.
