We’re also doing a cocktail reception. What we’re doing is having a head table with seating and a table for our family with seating. There is a also a small lounge area with 3 couches. Other than that we will have 5 high top tables with no chairs and a full bar with no chairs for mingling around and setting drinks down. If you really wanted the extra chairs I would just have them lining the ballroom rather than at the tables. The idea of a cocktail reception is to keep people moving around and mingling and having chairs at all the tables will really prevent that. As long as guests with an absolute need to sit can sit you should be good to go! Good luck!
