True: Your wedding day is about you and your partner. But what about the other 200 people in attendance? They're important and special to you—after all, they're the loved ones (friends, family members, coworkers) you hand-selected to spend this milestone moment with. These are the people who have watched your relationship grow, who will witness your marriage, and who will be part of your life for years to come. (If they weren't, you probably wouldn't have asked them to spend arguably the most important day of your life with you.) Basically, those 200 extra seats belong to the people who are part of your journey, your relationship, and your life. So here's an idea: Make them part of your wedding as well!

Sure, it does, but if you think ahead and plan accordingly, you can achieve this task in small but thoughtful ways. Case in point: The five examples, below. Each is thoughtful, personalized, and, most importantly, aesthetically pleasing to your wedding's overall design (wink wink).
