What do you mean, “the cake lady didn’t show up” ?!

For the happiest day of your life, you must be covered! Wedding insurance protects an engaged couple’s investment in the event of circumstances out of their control and provides reimbursement for incurred expenses.

Examples of Damages a Wedding Insurance Policy will Cover:

A limo driver does not show up on the day of the wedding, forcing the couple to hire a different company in a crunch for double the price.

The bride’s custom-made veil is lost in the airport so she must purchase a new one the day before the wedding.

The reception hall goes out of business a month before the wedding, causing the couple to lose their deposit and book a new venue last-minute.

What Does a Typical Policy Cover?

Venue – Policy covers the costs of unavoidable cancellation (damage to the venue) and if the venue is in an unusable condition due to fire, an electrical outage or has closed. Some policies will also cover the rehearsal dinner site as well.

Weather – If weather conditions prevent the bride, groom or relative(s) whose presence is essential to the wedding or a majority of the guests from arriving to the wedding site; policy covers the cost of rescheduling the event, including all details, such as flowers, food, etc.

Attire – Policy pays to repair/replace special attire (garments worn by the bride, groom or bridal party) if they are lost, stolen or damaged.

Military or Job Transfer – Policy covers the postponement of the wedding due to the bride or groom being called into military duty or forced to make a last-minute job transfer.

Plan Ahead for Peace of Mind

Though you may not want to think that disaster could strike on your wedding day, there is always a chance of a mishap or two. From a sudden vendor cancellation or damage to your treasured white gown, Wedding Insurance can protect against unforeseen problems, while also giving loving couples peace of mind.

Other Precautions to Consider:

In addition to purchasing a wedding insurance policy, remember these precautions to avoid a wedding-day mishap:

Do extensive research on the vendors you select. Get references from family members, friends and other local couples, and obtain a reliability report from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) before signing on the dotted line.

Keep your deposits small, as most are non-refundable. By limiting your deposit amounts, you will protect against a large loss if you need to reschedule or cancel your wedding.

Use a credit card versus a personal cheque to pay for services, as it is easier to dispute charges when using a credit card. Also save receipts for all purchases in case of a problem.
