I think you’ll be just fine.  I went to a wedding that was held at an art museum and the guests were spread out into different rooms for dinner, but everyone reconvened very easily into the main space when the tables were moved and it was “party time.”  Best of luck!

Put main guests on main floor; bridal party to the side; your family to the side.  Anyone else may feel slighted.  This way you can keep people’s tables and spaces.  [DId I understand correctly?]

You did a marvelous job of orchestrating this.  You may want to put a card on every table reading “You may greet the bride and groom personally in ABC space throughout the reception and you are encouraged to do so.  All welcome.”

Or you can have your parents and his in the side room; and bridal party in the other.

People who love you and won’t feel isolated or slighted should go in these spaces.
