Just been through this, as host.

I've just been through this. My daughter got married. About a dozen guests (10%) showed up with cameras, about half of them dslrs. In addition there were two pros floating around.
All the suggestions here about being discreet apply, and we had no problem.

Afterwards we sent an email to the guests asking if they would be willing to upload a copy of their photos to a file sharing site. We made it very easy for them. Many did so, and this turned out to be very nice.

Even though I was never really aware of them doing so, one guest shot 1500 photos with a dslr and one about 950. I was shocked at the numbers given that I was barely aware of they're taking pictures. All together about 2500 photos were uploaded and we downloaded all of them for keeping.

The pros shots were consistently the best, somewhat to my surprise. But the guests shots were wonderful to have.
