Let us have a look at the pros and cons of both seated dinner and reception style:
· Appears more organized since there a clear outline with details on where everyone is supposed to sit
· The arrangement gives off a more formal feel and also allows for natural-flow of formalities as they occur after the guests have eaten
· It can be frustrating when certain people are forced to sit next to each other. People should be allowed to sit next to whoever they want to sit next to
· The seated dinner setup is usually more expensive
· This setting generally creates a party atmosphere that’s informal and quite relaxing
· Since there are no chairs, there’s more room to move about.

How big should a dance floor be for 150 guests?
The amount of dancefloor to have basically depends on two factors; the number of guests expected to dance and how much space you have available. Considering that space is not an issue, then well focus on the number of guests to get the precise measurements for the dance floor.
For most weddings, it’s assumed that 40% of all the guests will dance. Generally, people need 4.5 sq. ft. per person on the dance floor - that’s 9 sq. ft. for couples.
From the 150 guests, assume that 40% or 60 of them will be dancing at any given time. This means that you will need approximately 270 sq. ft. (4.5 x 60) or a 16 x 20 party tent.
