keh11:  One rule of thumb is to allow 20 sq ft per person=4000 sq ft.

You can always give your guests lots of room at the table, which will mean more tables, spread the tables a little further apart, etc.

You can also create a lounge area at one end for people who would like to talk quietly at the opposite end of the room from the band or DJ.
