Are you having a plated dinner or a buffet?  If its plated you definitly need a seat for every guest.  If its buffet you could try for less seats then guests, but it can be risky.  Most likely even with a buffet all your guests are going to want to eat when the food is made available.  So you will likely run into problems with people not having a seat.

Our venue will actually do both options, and charges differently for each. I think if they are having more of a mingling/cocktail type reception still with a buffet, they put out placesettings for around 80% of the guests.
