    I would do it mixed.  I love lounge areas, first of all.  Then I think some people would enjoy being able to sit down at a larger table and some would enjoy just mingling between cocktail tables.

    i like the idea of mixed seating. that way it’s more visually interesting, and people know not to sit at a table all night.

    I like the idea of mixing it up.

    For our wedding, we’re having large round tables with seating for about half of the guests and then a bunch of cocktail tables. We’re hoping people will roam around, sitting at the big tables while they eat their meal, move to the cocktail tables to mingle, etc. I just don’t think that fully seated works well for a cocktail reception.

    Mixed seating would accomodate those that prefer not to  stand long while others can mingle and visit each other at the cocktail style tables.

    I would go with lounge and cocktail tables? Will you have dancing?? If so then but the cocktail tables near dance floor and the lounge area a little away from the music so people can sit and chat

    How long is your reception? Personally, I would prefer a spot to call my own if it is a longer reception.  I would feel funny trying to find a spot to sit all night.  Also, if someone left their drink on the table, I would feel that that spot was “taken” and may have a hard time finding a seat.
