correct, no real purpose if you’re not anticipating for people to be sitting a lot.

I wouldn’t asssign seats or have a head table.. a sweetheart table might be a good idea though, for when you guys want to take a seat/during speeches

Are you planning on having assigned seating at the cocktail party?  I’ve heard of this, but have never seen it executed.  If you’re not having assigned seating, I don’t see the need to have a head table/sweetheart table.

My wedding was cocktail style and we did not have any assigned seating…and to be honest, people really didn’t sit that much.

We are having the same thing. No sit down dinner basically just an extended cocktail hour..but longer. We just decided not to have a seating chart or a sweetheart table. We will however, put a few reserved signs around so our family and wedding party can have seats in the front. My only concern is how to let the guests know there is no assigned seating. I was hoping to put something up to let them know. Hope this helps 🙂

It might be nice to have a single “reserved” table for you to, but not really necessary.
