From google.

Choosing the Right Size Turkey. For a large party, you'll need a big bird -- say, 15 to 20 pounds; figure 1 1/2 pounds for each person. Smaller birds -- 12 pounds or less -- have a smaller meat-to-bone ratio, so allow 2 pounds per person.

It would help knowing your age gender mix. If you are dealing with the normal family mix I'd figure 6-8 ounces of cooked meat each. I'd also consider cooking a couple whole birds for some dark meat and bones for stock but breasts only for the balance. Much better yield with breasts. Maybe 3 10# breasts and 2 14-16# whole birds. For the stuffing about 4-6 ounces cooked each. I don't know what variety of dressing your area is used to just that dressing is cheap so over doing it is OK.
