I have to agree with your sister.  And I have first hand experience.  My cousin’s wedding was this way and the wedding guests were split into 2 groups, upstairs and downstairs. 

The only way I think it could work is if there are tables or something so that you could force everyone downstairs.  But while alot of people like to watch the dancing and chat, they don’t like to leave their seat.

My FI’s family is the same way. We don’t have the option of two floors, so we’re guessing many of them will leave early. Your way is better because your FI’s family will have a more calm place to hang out while not having to leave right after dinner!

Go with it.

can you have the venue close the upstairs portion after dinner?

do what YOU want to do.  You have one shot at this and it should be all you have ever wanted!

I understand why you’re torn. My reception will be split between two floors as well because of restricted space (ACK!). We are doing our cake cutting after dinner upstairs so it will draw people upstairs. I think we are going to be putting the bar upstairs as well so that will keep people upstairs.  We will be providing a certain amount of tables and chairs, as well as high top tables upstairs so there are still places to sit and chat, eat dessert etc.
