You sound like me- keeping it small at 350. I’m hoping its not a zoo- which is what I’ve been calling it. I thought to make it a cocktail/hors d’oeuvres only reception- plated dinner would be waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much money. Like you, family immigrated over, church family and friiends are also major additions. I need as much help as you! I’m offering support!

Find a venue that is used to handling that volume of people.  There’s a Chinese restaurant that has an upstairs ballroom that can seat up to 800 (!) people.  It’s usually divided into smaller rooms, but multiple wedding receptions are there all the time on Saturdays.

If the venue is used to that capacity, it can save you some headaches.
