"Sometimes all it takes is attention to every last detail, especially when it comes to weddings. For many brides-to-be, that detail is the traditional element of church pews in their modern setting of choice. While it may seem like a simple concept, it’s a niche that remained unfilled – until this past February. Newlywed and Birmingham-bred Rebecca Hassee made it her mission to care for brides by renting antique church pews, especially in bulk. She founded P.E.W.S. – Purely Elegant Wedding Statements – with her husband in hopes to provide the perfect backdrop for brides, grooms, and their loved ones to shine on their wedding day." Jessie Ammons from Southern Living

P.E.W.S. is the first business of its kind because it focuses on providing church pews in bulk for brides in bulk for bridesacross the South.We want to support and applaud those brave, southern brides who want to throw the perfect outdoor wedding. Pew also offer a unique and classic alternative to chairs! Even our name, Purely Elegant Wedding Statements, expresses how each of our items add character, beauty, and elegance to your big day. Our previously loved church pews provide traditional charm for your ceremony, comfortable sturdy seating for your guests, and that wow factor everyone will remember!

We would love to hear from you! Please fill out our Contact Form on our website www.rentpews.com and then send Rebecca an e-mail at rebecca@rentpews.com or call her at 205.527.8368! Read less

I loved the Pews! Rebecca was wonderful and always easy to get in touch with. The pews looked great at our ceremony site! The only negative I have is that there wasn't much flexibility when it came to rain. I wasn't really able to have the types of pews that I wanted because there was a chance of rain and the decision had to be made the day before. Other than that I was pleased with the service! I highly recommend!

Working with Rebecca and the P.E.W.S. team was amazing. Not only was Rebecca helpful in helping me plan the amount/style of pews for the ceremony, but she was always to encouraging and uplifting when we spoke. That is big when it is five days before the ceremony and you are stressing out about whether or not you need to add more pews. She was always quick to respond and always had the right thing to say. Not only were they great to work with and helpful, but the pews are stunning. I was so pleased with how everything turned out at the ceremony and could not have asked for anything more. Rebecca and I facetimed the morning of the wedding because she wanted to make sure I was pleased with everything. I thought that was awesome so that I didn't show up to the wrong layout or something. I cannot imagine not having used the pews and cannot wait to see of the pictures so I can always be reminded of how beautiful and unique they were. Thank you for making my wedding day so perfect!

Working with Rebecca and P.E.W.S. was a dream come true! Rebecca was so flexible with us and worked with us to make my wedding the wedding of my dreams. The pews brought the feel of a church sanctuary to my vintage-inspired, indoor wedding. They added so much more beauty than chairs could have added!

I was set on getting married in a church, so when a church member took my wedding date 6 months out, I panicked. After searching for a church we could afford and having no luck, my florist suggested we get married in our reception venue. He said we could make it look like a church and he recommended PEWS. We LOVED the look of our venue once it was transformed, and could not have had the "church look" without the pews. We loved working with PEWS; they were so flexible and kind to us, and the value was great. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

First of all, working with Rebecca will be one of your favorite vendors of your wedding. She truly cares about you and your vision for the day and doesn't treat you like a dime-a-dozen bride! She worked with some special conditions we had beautifully. Rebecca didn't stop there because when we returned home from the honeymoon, PEWS had followed up with the most touching momento. Brides just need to remember the spectacular of your event is truly in the details and PEWS is a detail that added the finishing touch to the religious ceremony I wanted in a non-church venue!!

WE LOVED, LOVED, LOVED working with P.E.W.S.!! We got married under a huge oak tree with chandeliers hanging from the tree and I thought we needed something more than normal chairs. The pews were a PERFECT touch!! Rachel was so awesome to work with! They looked magnificent & gave our ceremony the wedding feel it was missing!!

Choosing P.E.W.S to be apart of my wedding was by far the best money spent throughout the planning process. I wanted an outdoor wedding with the feel of a church and P.E.W.S delivered that for me. The pews themselves were in excellent condition, the customer service provided by Rachel was the best a bride could ever ask for and the patience from the delivery guys, as I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off, was highly appreciated!! My original plan was to put burlap and lace bows on the back of the pews, but as the day slipped away there just wasn't enough time. However, when I walked out of the doors and saw the pews without the bows, I was completely satisfied! They needed nothing extra added to them, they were absolutely PERFECT!! I will recommend P.E.W.S to all of my family and friends.

I loved loved loved the pews once they were in place. I'll admit they gave me a lot of stress since 1.) they can't get wet and this was an outdoor wedding 2.) if they can't be delivered due to rain, you're just out of luck, out of cash, and your guests have nowhere to sit. It of course rained the entire week before my wedding and the ground was soaked so the day of, I just knew we couldn't use the pews and I was devastated. While I went to get ready, though, it finally stopped raining and my wonderful husband, fam, and the PEWS crew set up everything exactly how I had pictured it. The only reason I can't give 5 stars is the stress that comes with not knowing if you'll be able to use something you've paid so much for and knowing if you can't you will get a fraction back, at most. Otherwise, wonderful, unique, gorgeous!

Using P.E.W.S. was one of the best decisions and money spent on my wedding! I would recommend them to ANY bride! I always invisoned myself getting married in a church because religion is a very important part of my life. As I got older and got a Pinterest, I knew I wanted an outdoor vintage garden wedding. P.E.W.S went perfect with my theme and made me feel like I was getting married in a church. It just made the experience that much more special to me. Not only that but I received so many compliments on them! I used a wedding planner so she spoke with them during the planning process and set up day of. She only had wonderful things to say about this company and their pews. As do I, I spoke with them and they were always available answering questions I had. They even got us a wedding gift of our name engraved on a bible. Y'all I cried at this! So thoughtful and sweet of them! Seriously use them! You won't regret it!

As a Bride, I didn't ask for much, I had my husband and my family and that was more than I ever could have dreamt of. But when I came across P.E.W.S. and shared it with my family, we knew it would be the perfect touch to create the intimate environment we desired for our big day.

Rebecca was incredible to work with, and made sure we were able to have her beautiful pews all the way down in New Orleans!! We constantly still receive compliments on how beautiful they were and we are so grateful to have worked with a worry free company who know how to make a brides day feel more than special.

Purely elegant indeed.

Rebecca was so great to work with and actually did a trial run of the pews before the wedding to make sure everything worked. The place we had the wedding, was on a slight hill so I was worried about them sliding, but Rebecca came up with a great plan to keep this from happening. The pews were so beautiful and really brought a church feel to our outdoor ceremony. I still have people complimening me on them and asking where they came from. Great vendor to use! So glad I found them.

P.E.W.S. was a new business when Matthew and I used them for our wedding, but you would have never know it. They were so accommodating and professional. We used their white washed pews for our outdoor farm wedding and I received so many compliments on how much they added to the ceremony. There was plenty of room and I know my guests were comfortable. Rebecca with P.E.W.S. was so easy to work with and had such an eye for what looked best. I 100% trusted her opinion and creativity on my big day. Some may think that paying for seating is a waste of money, but I think the pews added so much character and charm to the wedding. The two best investments I made on my wedding day was renting with P.E.W.S. and doing my pictures with Cortney Smith Photography. They were both worth exactly what they charged.
