As the venue how they can make the space look more ”full” like having less people at each table. Have 8 people instead of the 10 that they’ve set the table for.

If you’re too concerned, find another venue =] you havent put a deposit down, so why not?

If you really don’t think you’ll have enough people to fill the room, I feel it would be best to find a smaller, more intimate venue. Why not go the bed and breakfast route if that’s what you really want? What does your FI want?

My husband grew so weary of me changing my mind that he chose a venue himself. LOL

If you haven’t put a deposit down, find a more intimate venue.

The less guests showing up, the less money you will have to spend.

chickspartan:  Could you find a venue with two rooms or something similar so that they are able to use a larger room if more people come but the smaller one for fewer? Or one that can partition the room off to a smaller area if needed?

I don’t think it will be as big a problem as you think. We had about 50 people at our wedding, and our venue was outdoor and huge; they include 100 chairs, so it can accommodate at least that many. People will cluster with whomever they wish to socialize, though, which will make it seem crowded and lively enough.

I don’t think square footage by itself is a problem — it gives people more space to move around in — but empty chairs and tables might be. You could ask your venue to remove some tables if they will be empty.
