What a gorgeous venue!! My thought after seeing it is that you should not really try to fill–just put all the tables closer together near the dance floor so however many people you have are concentrated in one area rather than really spread out. I think it’s fine if there’s empty space in the back of the room or something– as long as the part where the people are doesn’t feel sparsely populated, it will feel pretty full, I think.

Just my two cents! Good luck. 🙂

You could also put a little ‘lounge’-y area in the back, some couches/chairs or hi-top tables for people who might want to mingle and chat instead of dance. then the dinner tables could be pushed together in the front to make it more intimate up there.

I would put an entrance table a few feet away from the doors (are people entering thru there?) with a large, showy arrangement on it and maybe the giftcard box?  Or could put the table placecards on it. (that would look fabulous and take up space.) This would serve as a grand entrance for guests entering the venue.

I would also remove some of the large tables and put on either side (left and right side) of the room an "S" shaped buffet table.  One side for the food, other for an action station or dessert buffet.  On each S table, put a large arrangement on it. 

These types of tables encourage movement.  And having one food style on one side and another type of food on the other side also encourages movement of guests. 

In the middle, remove some of the larger tables and put in smaller round tables mixed with some square ones.  Mix it up a bit.  It would look great!

I love the lounge idea for the back of the room if $$ allows.

Are you two entering down some of the stairs?  That would be great btw!
