Soup starter for thanksgiving. Yea or nay

I'm having eight people for thanksgiving. I want it to be a little different, maybe a few less side dishes then usual with more standouts.

I've kicked around the idea of serving soup as a first course, but I'm afraid everything else will cool off as we eat the soup...or should I let the guests eat the soup while I finish dishing up the main meal? How does everyone else do it or is it not worth the bother?
