Are the guests going to be standing the entire time? Because I dont think they will want to stay long if they can sit down

Is this a come and go reception? People probably will not stay long if so. It could get really crowded if people do stay around for the dancing.  Include that it will be a come and go one on the invites maybe so people know ahead of time if you want.

I understand your budgetary issues, but you really need to have a seat for every butt.  People get tired and will want/need a place to sit.  Especially if there is dancing.  Even if you have some seats, but not all the seats you need, it still could cause a problem because people will leave jackets/wraps/purses at their seat.

Girl, do whatever you want! Make time for the things that mean something to you because you don’t want to look back in however many years and wish you had a first dance with the love of your life.

Hmmm… Are you having it at atransitional venue that has tables and chairs? If so, go for it. Like PPs have said it’s a little more awkward if people can’t sit.
