Affordable Wedding Day Packages in Sussex

weddings in Sussex

West Sussex, located in South East England, stretches across some of England’s most beautiful countryside. Reaching as far northeast as Gatwick Airport and right down to the south coast to Chichester and Worthing, this diverse county is home to the South Downs National Park and the westernmost reaches of High Weald AONB. These areas give way to gorgeous places to hold your dream wedding, whatever your budget.

The expected cost of weddings is something we all think about. From dresses and shoes to flowers and cakes, the costs can soon add up to a figure which is simply not affordable for a lot of people. 

You may be able to cut costs in certain areas – maybe a sibling of yours is a fantastic baker, or one of your bridesmaids owns a florist. Perhaps you’re something of an artist yourself, and you can create some beautiful bespoke wedding invitations from scratch. The best way to plan a wedding on a budget is to do as much as you can yourself, but there will often be things you can’t DIY – such as a wedding venue. 

Your wedding venue will be the setting for your entire day – the success of everything else, from your vows and ceremony to your food and reception, hinges on it. It will also often take up a large portion of your overall wedding budget, which means that when you’re searching for affordable wedding day packages, it can be tempting to go with the absolute cheapest venue you can find. 

However, though you could get lucky, you may end up forking out more – for example, if you have to hire an external catering company or your wedding furniture, or if you have to find accommodation somewhere else, and so on. This is why it’s important to do your research – it’s like buying a cheap RyanAir flight. It’s only £40 for the ticket, but then you have to pay to choose your seat, to add carry-on luggage, to add hold luggage, and so on. Before you book your wedding venue, make sure you’re clear on exactly what is included (or not included) and what this means for your budget.

The Maple Manor Hotel – Wedding Venue in West Sussex

Wedding at The Maple Manor, Sussex

Located a few miles north of High Weald and a stone’s throw from Gatwick Airport is The Maple Manor Hotel. Our exclusive-use wedding venue in Crawley offers a charming setting for your special day, and we offer a range of customisable affordable wedding day packages in Sussex to help make your day perfect without breaking the bank. As an exclusive-use venue, you can enjoy the luxury of having our entire hotel to yourself – grounds and all guest rooms included – from 11am on the day of your wedding until 11am the next day.

Our Maple Room can accommodate up to 40 guests for the ceremony or 55 for your reception with our provided rustic-style tables and chairs. We also have a large marquee available as an outdoor extension to the venue which accommodates up to 100 people. Decor can be whatever you want it to be – we provide a blank canvas for you to decorate your wedding venue exactly as you like, and this doesn’t have to be too expensive, either! Check out our blog on DIY Wedding Ideas for Low Budgets for some inspiration on how to decorate for your wedding. 

We are licensed for civil ceremonies in the Maple Room and across the gardens, so you can share your vows with your extended friends and family out on the lawn. We also have on-site accommodation for up to 23 people, so you, your wedding party, and close friends and family can stay in comfort and convenience without needing to splash out on a separate hotel. Our 11 beautifully appointed rooms are a mix of single, double, superior and family rooms to suit your guests, and use of them is included within your venue hire charges.

In the morning, you’ll be able to enjoy a full and varied continental breakfast buffet with all of your staying guests, including fresh pastries, cereals, sweet treats, preserves, fruit and hot drinks. Because your exclusive-use hire runs from 11am until 11am, you’ll have plenty of time to continue your private celebrations in the Maple Room with your loved ones. This is a lovely opportunity to have a relaxed morning before you leave to embark on your new adventure as a married couple.
