Maybe have your head table in the middle with the other tables around, and depending on the shape of the tables either a circle or an x sort of pattern?

some tips I’ve read that worked for us were to put the more social people / dancers on the outer edges of the room because you know they’ll be up and moving anyway, and the older/shyer people closer to the dance floor so they can feel like a part of the action even from their seats or will feel more inclined to get up for a few dances knowing they can quickly find a seat if they need to.

And make sure the older people are farther away from the music speakers so they can hear each other (this is something I totally didn’t think about and didn’t realize until the reception and I felt really bad about it )

Will this be a seated dinner? If not where you place the bar and buffet/stations will make a difference as well.

Since you have a lot of room. I would put some standing cocktail tables around the room. You have a lot of people who will be encouraged to stand up. It in turn makes them more “approachable” and others will walk up and talk to them
