Insuring Your Wedding

Weddings are expensive affairs and the last thing the bride and groom need on their special day is some sort of disaster happening. Something like a ruined gown, absent caterer or inaccessible venue can mar your wedding day terribly. These are the types of situations that are beyond your control, but could also be the end of the wedding.

One of the things that you can do to minimise your loss is to take out wedding insurance. Wedding insurance will normally cover most of the mishaps that could delay or cancel the wedding. It will pay for real costs incurred – things like deposits lost, replacement gowns and travel expenses. The insurance could even cover lost or stolen items such as wedding rings or wedding gifts.

The important thing to do is to make sure what kind of insurance you’ll need. Sometimes providers such as your caterer, reception venue and limo service will already be insured for unforeseen circumstances. For instance the wedding venue burns to the ground shortly before the wedding, the venue should be able to refund you your deposit through their insurance. If they don’t have insurance like that, you definitely want to include the venue on your insurance policy.

Wedding insurance is quite affordable and has several levels of cover – from very little cover to extravagant cover for large and very expensive weddings. You can also get wedding insurance well before the wedding day. Some insurance companies may even allow insurance for up to a year before the wedding.

Getting insurance to cover you for your wedding in today’s life is as essential as having the bride and groom together on the wedding day. The only thing the wedding insurance will probably not cover is the cancellation of the wedding due to wedding jitters.
