My fiance and I attended a reception that is very much like what you are describing. They actually got married in a 5 min ceremony down at the beach with their cosest friends and fam- then walked up the hill to this reception area. What they did was have multiple buffest stations with various themese- Sushi, Italian, fresh fruit, drinks etc.  They didn’t assign any seats. People mingled, walked around and ate where they found a nice little area. They kept it casual. But there wasn’t enough tables even, for everyone to eat at. People were sitting outside of the reception area, or sitting on the lawn or bench with their food on their lap. But I don’t think anyone complained.

Why don’t you just reserve for your immediate family and then let everyone else just seat themselves.

Sorry! I completely misunderstood…

I think it would be fine to put "We have reserved ____ seats in your honor". They are returning this RSVP card to you to RSVP? So they won’t really remember if you put spot or seat or place for the day of. Right?

It’s commonplace not to have as many seats as guests at a buffet reception, but if you are inviting all of them to the ceremony, you will definitely have to have enough seats there for all of them! 😉 In this case, it is perfectly appropriate to word your invites, “We have reserved ___ seats in your honor.”
