When planning a wedding the guest list can often begin to spiral out of control. You suddenly feel the need to invite your work colleagues, your friend’s other halves; their children; should you have a “No ring, no bring” policy? Before you know it the world and his wife are on your guest list and costs are escalating.
At this stage in your wedding plans it can be a good idea to stop and reassess what, and whom is important to you. Your wedding should be a day to look forward to, and look back on, with happy memories.
Often having a smaller wedding with your family and close friends can be a less stressful and less expensive day. It allows you more time to spend with your nearest and dearest on the day itself - more time to chat; more time to laugh; more time to have fun. This is why couples are now often opting for a shorter guest list and a smaller, more intimate wedding.
Just over a year ago we launched a beautiful wedding venue in the Heart of East Sussex. Our aim was to provide a setting for weddings where couples can feel at home, relax, and really enjoy their day.
Based in a 600 year old, Wealden Hall House, The Pilgrims Rest is perfect for weddings all year round. Complete with its vaulted ceremony room, inglenook fireplaces and bridal changing rooms we have tried to include lots of added extras to make planning your wedding as easy and stress free as possible.
We have furnished the venue with lime-washed Chivari chairs, trestle tables big enough for sharing platters, benches with furs to vintage decanters and pea-lights and pewter candlesticks. The Pilgrims Rest needs little extra decoration but is a stunning backdrop if you have creative ideas of your own.
We offer the flexibility and choice to have your day just how you want it and. We have tried and tested suppliers we can introduce you to or you can bring your own. If you prefer, have a DIY wedding. Either way, there are no corkage charges and no hidden extras.
At The Pilgrims Rest our highly professional team will hold your hand and ensure your day runs seamlessly. We want you to thoroughly enjoy your wedding day and have fun!
So, think carefully about your guest list and choose those you love, those who will help make your day a happy one and those you really enjoy spending time with. With the right venue and the right guest list you will have the winning recipe for a perfect wedding day.
