How about a Paella , lots of choices for guests.
One dish meal ,prep ahead ,serve in pan .
Keep the theme with Sangria and Flan for dessert

You are right ....sorry I had thought about Paella but know some of my guests aren't big on seafood. I was looking for a more formal meal than we usually have... Beef would be the protein

Do you have a barbecue? I don't know where you live, but where I am it is hot and I hate to turn on the oven! If you do, how about http://food52.com/recipes... (This can be done in the oven too)
I would try to do make-ahead dishes for the sides since you have 8 guests and don't want to miss the party.
Gazpacho is a great start to a meal and better if you make it the night before.
Here is my stand-by recipe (though there are many other great ones here too I am sure) http://food52.com/recipes...

Do another light seasonal vegetable salad like this one:
