we have been tossing around the idea of a cocktail style reception. i know there are a lot of opinions on this, but seating seems to be the one sticking point.
i'd like to know from fellow forum members who have had cocktail style receptions, what percent of your guests had seats? we were thinking 160 seats for 240 guests. most guests are 20-30 or laid back family members.
there will be plenty of food and stations and all, but the seating is becoming a point of discomfort. i know there are a lot of people who don't like not having the exact number of seats, and i get that, but we are just looking for forum members who have already had cocktail receptions and were wondering how many seats you had, and how many you think you should have had.
