How many people are in the wedding party?  Would you get a traditional long rectangular table?

Most people will be walking around and mingling during this type of reception anyway, so I think you’d be fine either way.  However, I think it would still be fun to have a head table where your wedding party can keep their things and sit down if they like.  It’s nice to have the VIP feeling when you’re in a wedding!  🙂

I don’t really like head tables.  As someone who was the date to someone in a wedding party with a head table, I felt really awkward sitting with strangers.  But since you aren’t really doing a sit-down dinner and your wedding party won’t be required to sit down at all really (it seems?) I don’t think it matters much.

My daughter is having a sweetheart table for just the bride and groom. That way, the members of the wedding party can sit with their dates/wives/husbands/families. Everybody seems happy with this arrangement.
