Planning a Church Gathering for a Large Crowd?

I am in charge of a large gathering (approx 200) to celebrate the 40th ordination of a minister. All Lutheran churches in the area are invited. The problem is we have limited space, probably for 120 people and quite a few elderly parishioners. What's the best solution for not enough seating?

Is the space available for 120 for a sit down dinner or for a standing crowd? Is a special program planned where everyone needs to sit down? This all plays into your planning. It can be an afternoon "standing" tea, with plenty of chairs around the sides for the elderly who need them, or in small circles so they can visit. A brief program where the guests can still stand while a brief "honoring" ceremony takes place. If possible have a "history" wall of pictures and articles about the honorees past 40 years can get or keep conversations going. Also can do a "guest of honor" small table for the honoree to greet guest from. Lots of things you can do. Just have to coordinate the program with the reception/dinner(?) so they work together.
