Event Portrait lighting

I have a Reunion gig coming up. I'll be shooting portraits of all the attendees coming in. The group will be older so I was thinking large softer light to de emphasize things we all don't want to be emphasized. I was thinking of making it simple and using one light and getting a 65 inch Glow umbrella and diffuser. If needed I can use a smaller umbrella or bounce for fill if I don't like the single light results. I am rethinking that 65 inch though as I have not used something that big before. Am I overthinking it or would that be a good choice?  Would a 40 or 51 inch be a better choice? I am not usually a umbrella guy but looking for something easy to transport in my truck.
