All Jimbour House wedding packages come with a dedicated wedding planner and stylist to manage your wedding for you. Planning a wedding is almost like having a part time job and most people struggle to find the time to research vendors and negotiate prices on top of their regular commitments. Having a wedding planner takes the stress out of planning a wedding and allows you to focus on all the fun parts like picking a theme, writing your vows and choosing the cake!


Tanya Bensley is our dedicated wedding planner. Here are her top 6 reasons every couple should have a wedding planner:



Making decisions can be hard at the best of times. Your wedding day will be one of the most special days of your life and you may feel like there is a lot of pressure to make all the right decisions. Having someone who has been in the industry a long time and is happy to offer his or her opinion and advice can help to relive that pressure.


Your wedding planner will also be able to mediate and help reach a compromise when you and your partner have conflicting ideas. In many ways they double as a peacekeeper and ensure you don’t get bogged down in the planning process.


Industry knowledge

If your wedding planner has been in the game a while they will more than likely have a list of go to vendors. These are people they have worked with in the past and who have a good reputation. Recommended vendors will take the risk out of your wedding day! Using them will also save you endless hours of research.



Like any event or party, weddings can easily creep over budget. Your wedding planner will help you keep on track and work to source the cheapest prices for you.


It can be hard to know what bits are essential and where compromises can be made in terms of spending on your wedding. This is where a wedding planner will help to put things in perspective.



Wedding planners have the inside scoop on the up and coming trends. They spend a lot of their time trawling through Pinterest and visiting wedding fairs seeking out new and unique ideas on all things styling. If you have an idea in mind on how you want your wedding day to look than recruiting a wedding planner is the best way to achieve it!


On The Day Co-Ordination

On your wedding day the last thing you want to be thinking about is a wet weather plan or where the band can set up. It’s your wedding planners job to take care of all of these details so you can experience the day blissfully unaware of any hiccups along the way.


Basically your wedding planners job is to make your life easier. Throughout the planning process they will become your adviser, negotiator, style reporter and greatest support. We believe a wedding planner is a little slice of wedding luxury and therefore essential to any Jimbour wedding.
